We are very impressed with how many features this backpack has to offer. Starting with the bottom compartment, which has an internal zippered divider, you can pack your things in a more organized matter. This backpack is also water resistant as it features ripstop polyester material that allows water to completely slide off before it can penetrate the backpack.
The molded foam back panel features an airflow channel that will allow your back to remain cool and dry. Furthermore, the frame bar, which is contoured aluminum, is adjustable so that it can perfectly fit the shape of your back.
The backpack also features an extended collar that has 2 drawstrings on the top of the backpack which can expand the capacity of the backpack up to 5L. It also features hip belt pockets (1), bladder sleeve (1), front pocket (1), rain cover (1), a rain cover compartment with a bearing system for dividing, a sternum strap including an emergency whistle buckle, attachment for trekking pole, bottom loops for hiking poles or ice axe, and SBS zippers.
This backpack is definitely high quality and you can tell that this is very well put together. There are so many external attachment abilities which are very useful for your basic backpacker especially if you are trying to attach any extra gear while you are hiking.
Furthermore, this is a 55L capacity bag, which is perfect for adventures ranging from 1 to 3 days, but since this backpack has so many external compartments, you can actually extend your trip beyond 3 days. You can easily attach a tent, tarp, sleeping pad, wet clothes and much more.
In addition to that, this backpack is very lightweight; this is the perfect choice for someone who is trying to pack light. The sleeping bag compartment is just the right size for summer sleeping bags.
The compartment also includes a flap that can be removed from the rest of the backpack. With this, it has a more streamline capacity that may be useful if you’re not intending to use a sleeping bag.
It is important that a backpack have a great number of pockets. With the number of pockets that are available on the WASING 55L Internal Frame Backpack, you can easily access anything anytime. This backpack also has hip and sternum straps, load lifters, and shoulder straps which are all adjustable to ensure your comfort.
You can tell that they are sturdy and durable, and can withstand the test of time and use. In conclusion, this backpack’s materials are definitely of high quality.
This particular WASING backpack has gained so many satisfied customers; however, there are a few minor setbacks for the backpack. This includes the hip straps, which some find to be very small. Even for an average sized male, this could possibly not fit. The belt for the hips can go all the way across the waist but the strap padding does not.
Because of this, the distribution of the weight has been put off, causing discomfort when carrying the backpack. Furthermore, the zipper pockets are very useful, but even a Samsung S6 would not properly fit inside. We wish that it could at least accommodate a phone or other small smart devices.
We were truly impressed with the WASING 55L Internal Frame Backpack even though there are some setbacks. These minor details, however, are not enough to offset this pack’s many notable features. If you are looking to getting the best mileage out of a backpack, with quality for the price you pay, then you will not be disappointed.
