very well made, lots of clever design touches, suitable for serious day hikes as well as around town

I bought this day pack to replace a Deuter day pack that had lasted about 20 years. The Vaude Wizard is much less expensive, equally well made, and has some modern design features that I missed on the old one: the rain cover that is easy to pull out, better zippers, and more inside pockets.
There is such a huge difference between the typical warehouse backpack that's good for school or very short walks and the Vaude Wizard. This pack makes it easy to get things in and out, even in bad weather or on steep slopes. The many different adjustments (worth reading the tags!) make it possible to set it up that it is comfortable all day long even in difficult terrain.
In short, a very well made product with lots of clever design touches that you won't find elsewhere at a very reasonable price, and likely to last a long time.
