Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack The size is great for day walks but would also work for longer walks. Very spacious, but not too big and fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light and comfortable on my back and hips. I Bought my new Nowaki 32L pack for my two week holiday in Iceland with family. The two zip pockets on the hip strap have come in handy for lot's of snacks. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome features I bought this backpack for my trips to Kathmandu next April, but I have used it this weekend on a camping trips to Canberra and it has served the purpose. I am really happy with the product and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave it a thrashing I brought this pack about 5 months ago and use it everyday for work, weather I’m out setting traps on islands or bush bashing my way through a forest, this pack has been great! I cannot stress enough how comfortably it sits on my hips and shoulders when it’s either lightly or heavily packed. One feature that stands out to me is how it sits on my back, when I’m climbing up ridges or sliding down them it sits straight and doesn’t throw me off with the added weight. The space in the pack is also good, I can carry 2 litres, a first aid kit, lunch, extra layers and other gear I might need in the field. Highly recommend this to any women trying to find a comfortable and decent pack

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this for my World Challenge trekking daughter, from the photos that are currently being sent from the Sapa Highlands in Vietnam it is getting a really good work out in hot, wet and at times challenging conditions. She could have taken her 75 litre pack but has chosen to travel light with just enough room for 3 full days and overnight village hill tribe homestays, clearly she can get what she needed in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Comfortable Backpack Great purchase, needed to upgrade my daypack to one that was a good size and found this one to be perfect. Comfortable straps with lots of adjustable points to make it the perfect fit. Loads of storage pockets and plenty of room. Got it a little wet in the rain and held up perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack I wanted to buy a pack for my son, who is 11years old. I looked at the packs online and read the reviews. I wanted to go to the shop and try them on him. I had decided that a pack smaller than 28L would not have given us much more extra space than his big Kathmandu school bag, and we had already tested him with our adult sized tramping packs and the frame/straps were just in the wrong places/too big. I also did not want a pack that he would outgrow in a year say. The womans version was suggested by the assistant as they suit kids/teenagers better than the longer equvilent male frame. He happily carried his sleeping bag, his clothes and his two sisters sets of clothes in the pack. Two bottles of water fitted nicely in the side pockets. We/he loved the various belts and straps to pull the pack snug to his body. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack! I bought this for my 11 year old niece to carry on the Rakiura Track. Was perfect - plenty of room, pockets in the right spots and was comfortable for her to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for hiking! After tossing up between about 20 bags, I decided on this one to buy for a 4 day hike I was going to do in South America (note that I only needed to pack my day-to-day items in the bag, tents etc were carried by porters). So glad I did choose the Nowaki as it was perfect. I was able to fit quite a lot inside - definitely felt more than 32L! There's a ton of side pockets and different compartments, which is great when you want to get various items seperate. It also has a pocket for water reservoirs - my 1.5L CamelBak slotted in with ease. Despite packing what felt like the kitchen sink inside, it was still quite comfortable when trekking, and it has straps you can clip around your bust and hips for added support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and lightweight I’ve gone camping with this bag and was happy with the amount of compartments - lots of space to put various items. But also lightweight and easy to carry. I like the colour too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack for trecking!!! I bought this for Nepal trip, especially 4days trecking. I'm a light traveler & I don't like anything baggy / heavy. This pack is so light & fits alot ++ seems like more than 32L. It feel so comfortabl carrying around & the hip belt takes the pressure off the shoulder. It's a fantastic bag & I can't ask anything more than this. I'm expecting another trip next week. I'm going to carry this around again. Yay!!

Does this backpack have a built-in rain over?

Asked by: Kim153
No this doesn't have a built in rain cover. We would recommend a Pack Raincover (size small) if you are wanting additional weather protection, alternatively you could use dry-sacks/liners.
