Rucksack with

    Hello,

    So my old rucksack (Hi Gear Active 28) is on it's way out- virtually all the zips are broken, side mesh pockets are worn & loose. . The company don't do this rucksack anymore. What I love about it is the support system which means the back of the actual rucksack sits on your back and makes you sweat....

    Rucksacks like this seem hard to find these days. Any recommendations- looking for between 15 and 30L, 2 sections (at least), doesn't have to be waterproof. I won't be using it regularly so ideally an inexpensive one would be preferred.

    Thanks,
    Pa.

    What's to love about that? Or did you mean the opposite?

    Haha, I must have misread cos the one I recommended doesn't sit direct on your back.

    What can I say, I love pain and sweat....no, you're right I meant to say "that doesn't.."

    The recent Aldi or LIDL ones had a frame with a mesh similar to that to keep the bag off your back, you might find one in your local Aldi

    I bought one and they are a great bag. Wire bar in the back to keep the rusack up off your back. Dirt cheap too.

    Hi. How long ago did they have them in? Sound decent.

    It may have been 4 weeks, at a guess, but cant remember is the specific answer

    Yeah few weeks back. I'd say they'll have them again soon.

    Cheers. A very similar model here for €60. If there's no sign of the Aldi one in the next month of so I'll get this at some stage.

    Also use a Deuter, find it very good.

    I use this, picked it up on sale a few years back for £55 and find it great. Separate internal compartments if you want for dirty clothes and clean, helmet attachment and also can take a hydration pack if you are so inclined.

    What size backpack would you need if you were cycling out to say, a club league race and just wanted to store some bits like gilet, arm warmers, snacks, etc...
