That's a real bargain!!
I've got one and rate it to be much more comfy (and better) than those horrid Karrimor rucksacks. The fact that you can adjust the back to your backlength is a real pro. Furthermore, you don't need to buy a separate yoke for the packs, as the zip together and come with 2 carry straps.

I use the full 75 ltr capacity in winter (IF I get out ...), 55 in spring / autumn and 20 in summer. I plan to take the 55 option for a 2 month hike through Scotland / UK (thesis permitting).

Working on a review, but can't come around to take decent pics ...

If you need an alrounder - I'd say grab that deal

(no connection;))

i thought you had a karrimor sabre 85-100... ?
 
got given one a while back nice bit of kit

i use military side pockets as i prefer the shape for my kit one std one medic pouch.

i wanted a sabre 45 but his is a bit bigger and about perfect i replaced my old Vulcan 2 which was to big for my needs now. I wouldnt want smaller to be honest
