I purchased this pack 4 years ago and it is as strong today as when I first got it. I believe a review should be done after an extensive period of use, so here's my thoughts. If you are looking for a backpack for long hiking trips then this is not the pack to choose, that's not to say it couldn't be used for those type of trips but there are designs that offer more pro's for backpacking, thru hikes etc. Look for something with an adjustable back system which are also light for those type of excursions. The Karrimor Sabre 45 is designed to be loaded up with gear and tools, perfect for trekking through environments where you could get snagged on branches and thorns. It's an ideal pack to throw over your shoulders from car to camp, that's not to say that your car needs to be close to the camp as I have had this pack on my back for several hours at a time. I have used this pack on canoe trips and has great lashing points to secure it to the canoe incase of a capsize. I have put this pack through its paces and have loaded it with a fare amount of weight, there are no signs of wear and tears as of yet. I love the versatility of this pack as I have used it without the side pouches for an overnight camp in the woods and with the pouches for more extensive stays. You cannot go wrong with this rucksack as it is built to last. It is made from quality materials, I highly recommend it as it serving me very well.
