I bought my son this rucksack for Christmas. He is working as a ski instructor in Kitzbuhel, Austria. He uses it every day and is finding it be invaluable. It's big enough but lightweight, stylish but practical. Both he and I would highly recommend this product. It's proving hard wearing and great value for money.
