    Katabatic 28L Backpack v3 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Roomy I recently bought this pack specifically for climbing Ngauruhoe and found it extremely useful and comfortable. It was large enough to hold 2 500ml water bottles, lunch, snacks, spare clothes, and still have a bit of room. The multiple sections were handy (1 large main section, 1 front section further divided with a mesh zip pouch, 1 wallet-sized section at the top of the pack for things you might need to get at quickly without searching through the entire bag, 2 water bottle side pouches). The APS harness made carrying the weight less strenuous, and also meant the bag was more secure and wouldn't swing about when I was climbing, moving quickly, or bending over. The harness includes many straps so you can adjust it to your specific size/shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection !!! It fits great and I like the color. The best feature is the laptop sleeve. The straps fit really well and can be adjusted with ease. Great value for money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great day pack This is a great daypack. Plenty of room and really comfortable. It sits well on your hips so no pressure on the shoulders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for all around use I got this bag for Uni when I started it and found that aside from being great on my back (I have Lordosis) the water resistance is so good walking in the rain was never a problem, it kept all my work well protected and I could fit everything.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best day pack on the market when on sale Purchased to replace one that was stolen. Great size and fit. Most importantly it has proper hip padding, rather than most that just rely on shoulder straps and a thin cord around the waist. Colours are the only problem. My boy didn't like the colour scheme of the new packs. Too girly. Had to find the older model in run out sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and light I bought this recently for the discount, $80 price, as a mid range sized backpack for carry on an aircraft. It's incredibly light, and the chest and waist straps are great if there's anything heavy in the bag. It seems quite durable, strong zips and good compartments, especially for a phone wallet and passport. Only issue is that the waist straps are always loose, if there were some clips to hold them against the bag it would be great. They can be tucked in behind your back easily so it's very minor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good backpack, don't buy at full price. Great colour, good size for weekend away. Canvas feels a little bit thin and cheap. Zips ok, but time will tell how sturdy they are. Good backpack for $80 sale price. Overpriced at $180.
