Might go have a look. Cheers.

I bought one last time around. Sturdy and full of good features. Great price. I`ve used it often and can find no faults
#3
Oh nice! Just what I need for Leeds Festival this year! Thanks Tom Servo!
#4
Hmm, I may just have to make my first ever trip to Lidl for this. Nice one.
#5
would this be enough for a few weeks travelling the east coast of the US?

i'm alternatively looking at

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lichfield-Explorer-60-Rucksack-Charcoal/dp/B001XUR9SM/ref=sr_1_23?ie=UTF8&s=sports&qid=1270656174&sr=8-23

which would be better?

darkspark, that sack looks great for the price. Good brand and 70L too. The Lidl sacks are more day packs than travelling sacks.

Remember this simple rule for travelling:

"Whatever gear you are taking - halve it, whatever money you are taking - double it".

I bought one form Lidl in the past & wasn't impressed with it. The shoulder strap came off during the first use. If you are using it for light loads it may be ok but for anything substantial, be prepared to have a backup.
#8
Everyone remember these are aimed for people wanting day packs instead of larger capacity rucksacks for trips.

Just be warned that the capacity of the Lidl one is 20 litres whereas the Lichfield one is 60 litres which is a significant difference.

I preferably would go for a larger bag as 20 litres won't carry a great deal, and it is always better to get something bigger than smaller.

Also can anyone comment on the quality.
I only have experience with berghaus, bugout and gelert.

I bought two of the rucksacks two years ago that were 12.99 and their capacity was around 60 litres plus (I also have a 65l good brand for comparison), had built in raincovers and were worth the money. After a trip that took in Peru, Argentina, Rio, Iguassu, San Francisco and New York part of the the top seam on one of them had come undone but that's because my girlfriend had STUFFED it stupidly full. If you're not abusing it then it's absolutely worth the money. We had two styles and one has some extra pockets on the waist strap which were brilliant.

For day sacks I'd definitely recommend 35 litres and that's what the ones on the site look like they might be. 25 is fine if you absolutely know it's going to be sunny but in Britain if you want to put in waterproofs you'll need the extra space.

I can't find a built in raincover listed on the Lichfield, but this does http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gelert-Core-Rucksack-Flame-Grey/dp/B00322QR0A/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=sports&qid=1270662535&sr=1-2 but I've no experience with Gelert.

Thanks for the info. I ask because this is the first time buying a backpack, and wasn't sure how the capacities would compare to say a small suitcase. I now believe I'll go for the 70L bag. Fill it halfway, and leave some space for cheap clothes, trainers and other stuff I can buy in the US.

Not been impressed with Lidl rucksacks. Aldi should be doing their £20 ones sometime soon, far superior quality imo

The Aldi ones, when on offer, are 75 litre & look a lot better quality than that one does.

Cheers, but I think I need more space than 35L can provide.

The one at Amazon by a mile. This one is only 20l, its mainly for storing your stuff in for a single day. You will need more space I would have thought.
#20
pretty dire deal for so much heat no?
