Customer reviews

Many customers first impression of the 59404 is that it looks great out of the box. There is plenty of storage capacity for a sleeping bag, food, water and a change of clothes for a 2 to 3 day trip. Many were impressed by how easy it was to adjust the frame to their torso size no matter how lean they were.

For storage the pack comes with loads of pockets. You may notice that the separate sleeping bag compartment seems a little small, but there are that many compartments and you can unzip the divider, so I reckon it is a non-issue. The pack also includes a rain cover that is stored in a compartment on the bottom of the pack, perfect for keeping dry in a storm.

“Looks great, nice array of pockets and pouches. Easy to set up correctly for a range of different sized people from 10 year olds up. Was told it was very comfortable to wear and with care should last many years. Big advantage is shipping is available to Australia and it seems great value for money compared to what is available at our local outlets.”

Chris O’Brien, Amazon Customer Review

“I got this backpack at a reasonable price and didn’t expect it to be impressive. The quality turned out to be more than expected. Very large but also customizable for height. The rainfly that is included was a good bonus. Some zippers seem prone to getting stuck but not so stuck that it would render the pack useless.”
