★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ Medusa 32

Now owned for two years and used weekly throughout. Light, comfortable ( I am 6'2" 15st) and very easy to live with. Still looks good, still clean( ish) and remains undamaged. Pluses; Comfortable, light, excellent value excellent day pack. Well thought through in every detail, good belt and straps. Points; Needs careful packing to get the best out of it...there are long corners into the belt that can be stuffed with soft odds and ends. The inner top pocket with plastic clip is much smaller than the outer which has no clip. Minuses; Not waterproof at all and needs liner bag, dry bag/s, slumps with small load, no inner loop in main compartment to clip anything in such as gloves in the wind, knife, keys, dry bag etc. Side pockets not quite large enough for a bottle. I have owned LOTS of sacks...this is one of the better ones...would get 5***** if it were waterproof.
