Karrimor Jaguar 75

rated 2.5 of 5 stars

A great piece of gear!! The other reviewer (Tony) probably didn't take enough time trying to find a backpack that fits his body. He's right about one thing: the waist belt is coming loose (very) slowly, so you'll have to tighten it every now and then (maybe every hour), but it's very easy to adjust.

In the eight years I've been having this backpack I've used it for a 2 month hiking vacation, a long-weekend trip in winter with a bivy-bag (backpack stays out ) and everything in between and it always served me well. I would definitely consider buying a Karrimor backpack again when this one is wearing out, but is probably gonna last another 10 or 15 years.

Contra's: Side compartments aren't always that comfortable when going through small passages.

Pack review: Hopeless piece of kit. Only good thing was mil green colour. Waist band kept loosening. Shoulder straps kept loosening. Shoulder straps kept coming off shoulders and when moving quickly I had to have one hand on then to try to prevent this, making it tiring and awkward. This piece of kit is only good for the nancy boys on wall street and other desk drivers.
