I was a little nervous ordering this pack. But it was so cheap I just had to. There are very few reviews or information online about it. I thought it was just too low of a price for it to be high quality. I was wrong. The zippers are great and do not snag and the compartments while not plentifu... Read More

    Pros: +2 stars
    Very inexpensive pack for its size. No glaring design problems, would be an ok first pack. Plenty of belts and loops for hanging items. Separate zippered bottom compartment is a nice feature. Pockets are well placed. More compression straps (and strap length) than you'll know what to do with! The fabric is thick and sturdy.

    Cons: -3 stars
    This pack is not built for a man with a remotely wide neck. I am not a big man (15.5 inch neck), but the shoulder straps dug into the sides of my neck to the point of pain. The straps are simply too close together, and have no ability to spread them wider apart. The torso length sizing device is easy to use and effective, BUT the mechanism is a large lump on the back of the pack. It's slightly padded, but after awhile it begins to dig into your back. The waist belt and shoulder strap material easily collects dirt and sweat, and is very abrasive on bare skin. Plan on wearing a t-shirt (no tank tops). Compared to the name brand packs, the zippers and buckles are cheap and clunky. I wouldn't expect them to last very long. The side pockets will not fit a Nalgene bottle. Little ventilation in the back. Back padding is unnecessarily thick so it traps moisture and heat.

    Final thoughts: If you have a small neck and back this pack would make an OK inexpensive first pack.

    Very pleased with this Vaude pack. Not too many pockets that stick out to get caught on things if using it as a carry-on or checked bag for trips, and still has everything you need. More of a chili red than orange. You definitely won't be missed holding this pack. Easy to fit with the STP backpack fitting guide video, and has a couple of pockets on the waist belt which only the nicer packs have, Great quality for the price.

    Besides getting a GREAT deal on this bag, I'm going to use it as my carry on for an upcoming trip and will save an additional $50.00 in baggage fees ! I REFUSE to give the airlines money for my bags and although I have a small suitcase, I didn't think I'd be able to lift it over my head and into the overhead bin on the plane.BINGO ! Use a backpack ! It's lighter than a suitcase with just as much room, even more so, and I can handle it much better. This pack has separate compartments which will help with packing. Can't wait to use it !

    The Vaude Astra II is a comfortable pack which has ample capacity. It is not an extra-large bag, but it is sufficient to hold a tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, cooking gear, food, hammock and stove for a 3-4 day remote camping trip. I did not need to adjust the belt and shoulder straps, the bag fit me well as-is.

    I'm 6'0" and the pack fit perfect right out of the box. Had to send the first one back due to a broken snap but STP had a new one at my door in 2 days. Used the pack on a 3 day backpacking trip at 9000' and had plenty of space, although my synthetic sleeping bag was too big to lash on the bottom straps. They could easily be extended by sewing some extra lengths of webbing. Not the lightest weight pack, but I wanted durability and this pack is rock solid. Built-in rain fly works great. All this for under $80?'re dead to me.
