I used this over the course of about 10 days (one backpacking trip to France, and the other to Holland). After the first five days, the inner divider had torn through...so the boot compartment was no longer separate from the main compartment. I'm not surprised this happened; the material was only sown in with one line of stitching.
On the other hand, I have a 10 year old Lowe Alpine bag of the same capacity which has never failed in any way. (I would have used that bag for those two trips if it weren't for my sis and bro taking it without telling me for 'festival duty'.
Would I recommend the bag? Nope...not when GoOutdoors sell quality brands for near enough the same price.

Buy cheap, buy twice...
This rucksack is just a cheap bit of tat. It may be £28, but it still isn't good value IMO. I wouldn't normally recommend a Karrimor item given the butchery Sports Direct have done to that brand. However, the following bag looks better - and costs the same;
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Karrimor-Skido-Rucksack-Tank-Pewter/dp/B007IIZXG8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397488188&sr=8-1&keywords=65l+rucksack

Chuck another tenner on top, and you'll more than likely be able to find a proper bag from a proper brand with proper build quality. (I am not a brand snob btw...but cheap outdoor gear is an absolute false economy. They are high wear items that need to have good build quality)
