simonMan40-49 years old20 November 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionInnovative. Very comfortable. Better guidance reqSturdy frame. Snug fit. V adjustable. High adjuster needs a knot in it to stop slippage.
Its complicated. There are a lot of features that work together to make the bag really comfortable. It took me a while to figure it out but when you you do, it works really well. After pouring a glass of water over it....yes its waterproof....apart from the zips....but that was after pooled water on them for 30mins. The top bit again takes some getting used to but is great for putting a camera in for v quick access on the go. Plastic map holder on the underside is genius. The side pockets work really well and are huge. 4th rucksack. Most comfy. Most useful features. Great companion

My previous comments seem to have been moderated so I am trying again. I had to cut a 5 day trip carrying about 17kg short after the rucksack was hurting me so much. The shoulder adjusters kept jamming and could not be set up properly. The waist belt straps kept slipping so the rucksack kept sliding off my hips. The back length adjuster kept slipping resulting in the wrong length ratio. Also the back length adjuster kept jamming into the small of my back. There is nothing to recommend this rucksack.Brand's answer :
Thanks for getting in touch regarding the Symbium access trekking backpack. I apologise for the discomfort and inconvenience caused by the backpack. I shall pass you comments on to the design team of our backpack range.
