Which one is the better deal, this one or the North Face one you posted a few minutes later? Many Thanks
Both are equally good, I would go for North face for brand value and durability, plus you get lots of pockets in backpack including in the lumber support area which are missing in Berghaus. I hope it helps with decision
Are these really worth the extra? I spent £20 on a Eurohike bag something like ten years ago and it's still fine.

Comfort is subjective but I've never been convinced there's much difference.

Strange, you can get it if you select size n/a but not if you select 65L!

What are you doing with it? It's all relative. Someone who is doing a two week, 100 mile trek might have somewhat different needs.

What exactly is "brand value"? I would add that I've had a North Face day pack for about 5 years now, hasn't faded and the durability is unreal, constantly had kilos of books in it, till bursting. Not a single ding. That said, generally the consensus between distance/hill walkers that I know seems to be that North Face stuff (esp. clothing) isn't what it used to be.

Agreed. When you're doing multi day treks carrying full kit, comfort becomes even more important - minor niggles which might be of little issue on a one day walk can be compounded over time, particularly in the area of lumbar support.

That said, there's a lot that can be done to properly fit(or fail to fit) rucksacks beyond buying one of the right torso length:
I got one a high sierra camping backpack 65 from tk maxx for 30 last weekend, looked on the net and they go for a lot more usually, worth checking if your about !

Didnt realise North Face had a brand value worth more than Berghaus. Other than North Face being more popular and well know doesnt make it any better than say a Casio is more well known that a Breitling.

Personally used a Berghaus for 3 months backpacking, this was borrowed from a friend who had just returned from 12 months backpacking. Quality of their backpacks are unreal IMO
My first line is "both are equally good" a general statement , second line is "I would go for.." this is a personal statement, which means my choice. My personal opinion is north face invests a lot in nature preservation and other related projects so it is my choice of brand. I never said any other brand is inferior or superior.
another 53 quid down the swanny.. cheers OP!

I seem to be going on a 3 day hiking adventure every year now so should prove a good buy. Have some heat!
65L is not big enough for my needs. Good deal though.
Now down to £41.73. Only about 12 left though. (remember to choose N/A as the size).

Anything from 10 day hikes to simply carrying clothes.

Yes, that was exactly what I asked! Are these noticeably more comfortable than a decent cheap bag?
