This new featherlite Montane backpack is versatile, well made and has all the attributes and extras you would expect to find on a full-on trekking pack. Even the colour - I have the Zanskar Blue - is fantastic. I didn't give it the full 5 stars on VfM because I was made to pay a higher price, but it is now down to a very reasonable one.

Bought this rucsac two weeks ago . Looks great and does what it says on the tag . This sac packs all my usual kit with space for more . When adjusted to your fit ,fits we with no fatigue on your back or shoulders . The hip pockets are big enough least a silva SL4 and more as they strech . The top pocket hold quite a lot of kit ,the usual snacks ,hat ,gloves and a wind top and probably a bit more . The main sac is cavernous with a draw string closure with a quick opening system which works well also the front of the pack can be fitted with a bungy cord . The chest strap works well and is comfortable . The shoulder strap padding is adequate and comfortable also is the back padding which breaths well . The internal hydration sac pocket is quite large . The side stash / bottle pockets are great and hold bottles well . The walking pole holders work well and secure your poles well so they don't wobble using your compression straps to hold the shafts of your poles . A well thought out pack ,stable no fuss and a pleasure to use .
