Ich war mit mit meinem Lowe Alpine Cerro Torre II früher in Sudamerika, der Türkei und der Wüste in Tunesien unterwegst. Er stand jetzt fast 30 Jahre in der Ecke und wie am ersten Tag begleitet er mich jetzt auf die 2394 Km nach Santiago de Kompostella.

Der Rucksach ist trotz seines Alters unverwüstlich und steht den heutigen Produkten in fast nichts nach. Robust, unverwüstlich und ich hänge an meinem Begleiter. 500 g ist er schwerer als das Qualitätsprodukt meiner Tochter, dafür aber auch fast 30 Liter mehr Inhalt!
[Google Translate: Despite its age, the rucksack is indestructible and has almost nothing to do with today's products. Robust, indestructible and I hang on my companion. 500 g it is heavier than the quality product of my daughter, but also almost 30 liters more content!]
I feel I have to comment on this bag I have now owned for about 10 years. As a top-of-the-range bag then, I was recommended it by a school teacher. It has a very simple design, I large stuff-space, divided by one internal septum (zipped).
One large top-pocket, one slim internal document pocket, removable aluminium support frame (double as leg-splints). Lumbar support, adjustable rack, thick belt and chest strap. I have been from the USA to Europe, from Central India to the Himalya range with this sack.
It has never failed. Not one zip, cord, pocket, flap, fabric, buckle or strap. It has to be the most reliable thing I have ever owned. It has saved a life (sturdy staps supporting human weight). I have bivvied in it (well my legs did) and have subjected it to long multiple bus rides over the Indian mountain ranges riding in the trunk.
I love my bag. I hope Lowe (Alpine) keep up their standards.

Brilliant sac... I've used it for extended expeditions in both the Alps and Scotish winter (that's when I did the 70lb load and it was still comfortable), good harness (and I think it's been modified further to be even better...side pockets of about 10 litres can also be attached and tents etc can be tied on the outside...
