As per title. In the market for a new pack of this size and type. Already seen that Needlesports have Crux packs at a hefty discount for similar money, I just like having the 70l capacity when it's needed.
I have several friends that are a bad influence and plans are being made....
I'm well aware that Simond have been making mountaineering kit since way before most of the better known brands and everything I've had before has been great. Just seems a little too good to be true
Has anybody used this? Is it as good as it seems?
I have the Simond Alpinism 33 backpack and it's great. Well designed and seems pretty hard-wearing (I've had it about 18 months and it gets used multiple times a week).
Obviously a different model, hopefully that helps.
Perfect, thanks! Most of their kit seems pretty good.
I have the Simond Jorasses pack, which now seems to have been discontinued, and I love it. Well made, well designed
I have a 22 litre Simond pack which has been very good & I would buy another if/when it wears out. But I'm not sure I'd want a 45/75 L sack without some adjustment to the backlength (difficult to tell from the website but it seems the Makula has no adjustment). Although if you're lucky its the right length for you (being small I find that most sacks are too long for me)
Thanks guys. The other stuff Ive had from them has been great, just haven't tried any of their rucksacks!
No 1 son has got one very similar to that - last years model I think. He's very pleased with it. We've an assortment of other Simond rucksacks in the house and they have all done really well and taken a beating
Read some of the reviews; the Russian guys weren't that keen, and identified what seem to be reasonable gripes, even if they don't appear to like hip belts...
Of course, their returns policy is very good.
Yeah thanks, I saw that. Never really like to read too much into reviews when it's somewhere like Decathlon that has such a broad range of customers buying all sorts of junk (that includes me at times....)
You can usually filter out the "don't like the colour" comments, especially if the critical comments are specific.
During the first lockdown, twelve-year-old Tom was content with local walks, some climbing and watching videos on YouTube. As the days he passed and it was clear that lockdown was not going to end quickly he decided he needed a project - his own version of The Bob Graham...
