Not quite what you wanted? If you’ve bought into lighter tent, sleeping bag, shell clothing, stove etc, then chances are that no, you won’t need a pack of this size for most UK trips anyway. Talk to us and we’ll help you find the perfect clothing or gear for your adventure. Want your gear fast? I think they are stuck in the past. Quick Navigation Starting out? We live in the great southern alps and our team test our gear daily. In practice I think the C7 is fine up to around 50lb or so, which is a heavyish multi-day pack using non-lightweight stuff, but I wouldn’t want to load a lot of expedition climbing kit, heavy tentage and so on into it, if that makes sense.
They too have movement in the hip area, but it’s less pronounced. I’m amazed they can sell so many of these when framed supportive packs of around the same capacity are available at less than half that weight my Golite Quest – 1.

Looked at the golite pinnacle but it doesn’t feel right. Compression straps all over it. I think it would be enough for 1 person camping.

Ditto Rsview who produce some very nice packs. Add reviews of outdoor gear and equipment here This puts less stress, strain and fatigue on the wearer through perfect load transfer.

I think the big pack market is becoming smaller as kit becomes lighter and more compact generally. The trouble with lightweight, is that light reliable materials tend to expensive and that’s multplied by the way margins work. Only trouble is ,there is so much variety out there.
This means the load you are carrying stays close to your centre of gravity giving effective load transfer at all times. The squeeking would drive me to 70+110, my mate has one andit definitley does squeek and if he’s honest he wishes he’d have gone for the Osprey but wont admit italso the weight is ridiculous you will start out with around 6lbs on your back before filling it, try the Ospreysacks much lighter and far better designs or if you don’t mind the weight go for the Lowe Alpine, adifferent league in quality and build, to many plastic bits to break off the back system with the Berghaus, imagine 10hrs Squeek Squeek Squeek.
Keep them close at hand with the walking pole holders, base compartment with bivi divider and attachment points on the lid and it’s compatible with hydration systems Extra features for improved fit and convenience include tension and compression straps on the lid, side and base, grab handle, 40mm Bergbuckle, gripper nerghaus hip-belt and a raincover to keep your pack dry.
So when the wife and i head off, i think she may need about a 45l sack to cover our needs. I have a sleeping mat so that will pack on the outside,but i would like a seperate compartment for my sleeping bag at the bottom of the sack. Thanks for the pointers about trying the sacs out too.
Iits worth keeping in mind the packs intended use too, as so many people buy a pack thats more than too big for their needs. The time now is Had a quick trial run packing it out, and seemed to struggle getting all my gear in.
Hiking Packs | Backpacks | Tramping – Berghaus C7 1 65+10 Mens Pack
Mind you, when I were a lad, I walked pennine way with a pack that weighed berfhaus much as wales, but itdidn’t put me off.
I need to choose a Rucksack as i intend to go on a few wild camps this year. Am I right to assume it’s been tweaked in the same way? Maybe the DofE organisers need to re-think their compulary gear lists in light of modern fabrics, technology etc.
Berghaus C7 1 65+10 Mens Pack
Converted last year to an Osprey Exos 58 – 1kg Most folks online would consider even that 58L rucsack completely excessive for night wild-camps.
I think they are stuck in the past. Isn’t the whole bioflex system prone to defects, especially during air transport?
Looks like i lost out there. Cheap, light, strong – choose two if you have the option of cheap and light anyway. Information is provided free of charge; it is each walker’s responsibility to check it and navigate using a map and compass.

When you go shopping, make sure the pack’s loaded up with the sort of weight you’re likely to be carrying and get the shop staff to adjust it to fit you properly then wear it around for a while, see how it feels stepping up high, walking up stairs and so on. After all, we are meant to be helping kids get fitter with all this talk about obesity.
Fair question, particularly as there’s obviously no definitive dividing line where something goes from being ‘medium’ to ‘heavy’ and if you’re backpacking, a heavy load can become a medium one as the trip goes on and you consume food and fuel. If you’re in a remote area you’ll need to be a little more patient with deliveries.
Compression straps all over it. I tend to agree with Moggy at the moment, ive got one for walking the west highland way at the end of april and wild camping along the way.
The new Lowe Alpine packs are worth a look too. International Express Track and Trace delivers to Australia in days, day delivery available within New Zealand. I’ll get out to the shops soon hopefully.
Rucksack for wild camping. For a solo WHW at that time of year it would be my Litespeed pack 1. I’m hoping that a slightly more involved back system will keep my back in good shape, and keep my sciatica at bay Yes i looked at the berghaus verden,but when it said it was an entry rucksack it put me off a little bit.
I cringe when i see groups of youngsters struggling with monster loads. If you’ve bought into lighter tent, sleeping bag, shell clothing, stove etc, then chances are that no, you won’t need a pack of this size for most UK trips anyway. It’d be great if DoE kiddies had good light kit, but it would cost an arm and a leg.
That’s good news about the longer term test for the Berghaus. One can be perfectly well equipped and comfortablewith a smaller and lighter pack. It seems to be the easiest trails that attract the biggest and heaviest packs, judging by the number of people we see slogging along like carthorses.
