Price Paid: 100e
I had this as my only luggage in around-the-globe one month travel. It was an excellent partner - and I could always take it in cabin even in small airplanes which was flown by tiny, for me before unknown companies.
Backpack is strong, it contains one huge part ~ 33 L and one smaller ~5 L. Inside the bigger is an small part with zipper for keys, papers, passes etc. When it was very bad weather and I was afraid for my clothes and other things - they were always dry, of course when humility was 100 % everything was moist.
So - it's huge and strong. You can dilate it and expand it with thongs. I have now had it over two years in heavy use, and it is as good as new.
In recent years I have carried it it my bird telescope (Opticron 100 HR), the video head and heavy but short travel tripod (53 cm) with in addition to other goods in forests, swamps and mountains.
It has always been a reliable, water-resistant travel companion.
I like the fact that I can find everything very quickly. I hate backpacks, which have a hundreds of parts, compartments, tens of zippers and all sorts of props. Haglöf XL is clear, simple and therefore an excellent choice.
