Very delighted with the bag. excellent build. very well made. strong. Its light at 750g and It's compact. light. very adaptable with lots of straps for external attachments. Internal is one main compartment and has a section for Camel Pac bladder, and a inside zip pocket near the top for keys, first aid kit etc. it's very easy to open up, load up. Good shape. used in the rain and internal contents did not become wet. Very pleased. Shoulder straps are not padded. Light short walks no issues. Fill to 22 litres max and heavy as it can dig in on the shoulders. Try padded seat belt pads. There is no frame to the bag, good in one way as its light. But can dig into your back if carry anything with corners. There is an accessory that slips into the internal big pocket called 'Savotta MPP Foam Mat. Disappointed this was not supplied with it. Its a little like having to buy the seats for you new car as an extra. Savotta need to address this. Have phoned customer service at Ray Mears and they may sell this soon but as an extra. At present you have to shop around for it. I used the padded bag the bag came in, folded it in half slipped it in the internal pocket and works a treat. It stops anything with corners digging into your back. It is an excellent bag, strong, built to last a life time, light, adaptable, compact. External accessories are available, such as external side pocks, and MPP foam mat for internal padding. Savotta also make Savotta Happy Patch, this is a smile face on velcro that fits the velcro patch on the top outside, bit of fun. Ordered the bag at 2pm and it arrived 10am the next day free post, that's excellent service from Ray Mears Shop. I would recommend the bag. It's ideal for light walks. If you tend to like to load up and carry the kitchen sink go for a larger bag with padded shoulders.
