    forgot to add, vaude comes with a raincover too. you can take a look at "the planet traveller" and there is always a 20%-30% discount during sales period.

    The people who started Vaude were from Deuter.

    even top-of-the-rung brands have sub-premium gears. dun c brand, go for a pack that suits your body type (e ideal fit)- shoulder width, torso length. some backpacks have e option to fine-tune adjustments to specific body type for near perfect fit. if u r carrying a heavy load u wont 1 2 end up aching all over at e end of day 1!

    if weight is a serious consideration go for a mainly Cordura material pack.

    this following link has some tips on how to choose e right pack.

    Good advise, finally someone mention abt the fit.
    Like shoes, one size on different brands can have different fit and so trying them is very important.
    My Osprey "60L" has 3 different size/fit (which of course, affects the actual volume)!
    So make sure you try them out when buying that super branded, super expensive backpack.....

    i do not recommend getting the fake one because the material is heavier and ergonomically the design is poor even though it might look the same as genuine one.
    yeah! lafuma for me too. Been accompany me to several mountains. Durable and comfortable.

    Hi all, thanks for the suggestion.

    I saw the Krrignor panther that day, think its quite ok. Any1 have experience with this backpack ???

    What i like about this is that the compression strap on the side can be use to secure the tripod. Which is a big plus

    Mine also have the double straps on the side but it dont really hold well enough as it has to depend on your tripod size too.
