Looking for a kickabout Daysack - is this one ok?

#1
Hi all

Now a girly civvy & lost touch with the gear you chaps are using.

I'm after a daysack just for normal day to day use & wondering if this is worth the money.

Fleabay Black Day Pack

Cheers for any advice.

Avoid like the plague fella, those things fall apart in minutes. You would be better off with a tesco carrier bag.

Ta for that.

Plan B then.

Most bags I've looked at seem to be made of the same gear as aforementioned Tesco carrier bags. I'd prefer something a bit heavier duty that I could fling about without it splitting apart like a QA's legs.

Any suggestions?

Sorry to Disagree Spaz.

I have two of them. One I use everyday for work, loaded up with all sorts of shi.te. Gets thrown in and out of cars, Landrovers and bits of plant all day long. It goes with me everywhere and hasn't let me down.

The other has a rotting collection of body parts in it.

I'm glad to hear that Jacob, mine fell to pieces in my unit gym 30 seconds after I was issued it as I was stuffing it full of desert issue tat. Its made of poor quality material and stitched together with cobwebs. The amount of people I've seen carrying these around with zips bulging open and seams gaping tells me that it wasn't a one off.

Looks good but probably a bit big for what I need. The only hills I go up nowadays have pubs at the top.

The black one is shite as mentioned already, if you dont want DPM but OG is ok, try a Berghaus munro

The black one is issued with the new kit-bag. It was a freeby from the supplier of the kit-bag and it's intended to be used as hand luggage on flights.

Only STABs and Crows use itn in the field.

Dont actually mind DPM so wouldnt rule anything out because of that.

Will have a look at the Munro.

Looking again at this I think the label says 30 ltrs which would mean its just the size I'm after.

Is it just a midget dummy its on or are my eyes even more crap than the rest of me?

I've had one of mine for 11 years battered fuck out of it and its still going strong.

TomB yeah I think its a small dummy.

I've got the older version of the Berghaus freeflow and can't recommend it enough. 3 years old, 3 continents of moderate to heavy use, regular use for trips each month and its still in A1 condition. And with the added satisfaction of a sweat free back when in hot climates or the 2 hot UK days!

Bought one - if it turns out not to be genuine I should have no trouble claiming the cash back through paypal as his description is pretty clear he`s selling it as genuine.

Cant lose either way..................................................he said confidently 8O

He had about 11 of those when I bought mine - they sold out quickly.

Was that you lot ??
