    Very good value at $190

    Good no frills lightweight pack. Some packs overdo the pockets etc, and this one was almost too extreme in the other direction: I could have done with one or two extra pockets or zippers. But main thing was it was light, durable and comfortable.

    Basic but solid

    I bought this pack to fit my winter kit (more gear more weight). The 20Kg load capacity is perfectly comfortable, could go plenty heavier with the harness system but too much for me to carry.

    The Patea is a basic pack, the side pockets are large but a little hard to get things in and out of. You only get a (large) top pocket, two sides pockets (also large) and bottom access zip. OK for me due to the daisy chain on the back.

    Really good durability, bush bashed etc. Good as new. Stability while scrambling also really good.

    Very happy with my purchase.
