Ordering experience was smooth. Back pack was delivered on time. Really good communication. I bought this backpack for an upcoming fly fishing trip so have not used it yet. I chose the 35 liter size which I think was a good decision. Was debating about getting the largest one but glad I didn’t. The information and videos on Gilli website were helpful in looking at the size and features. I looked at many backpacks on-line, even specific ones for fishing, and none of them compared to this one.
I wanted to get a bag that would survive many outdoor trips and this bag is it. It's made of a strong material, waterproof amd lost of room very impressed and satisfied with my purchase thank you!
Bought the waterproof backpack for an upcoming 2022 Antartica trip. Looks well made and perfect size for my needs.
Bought as a travel backpack for sailing trips (and dinghy rides) as well as commuting in a downpour. The 28L size is a bit big for me, but the shoulder straps are well placed for my small frame. The description doesn’t include the fact that there is a padded laptop compartment and a few other smaller pockets inside the bag, which was a pleasant surprise. I took one star off because there was a small defect in the stitching of the Velcro for the front pocket (one seam missed the Velcro so it was not fastened correctly). I handstitched the Velcro rather than try to exchange the bag.
Bought the small size backpack for a trip to the Antarctic to keep my camera and gear protected on zodiak rides to land. Love the look and plenty of room. Going to put it in the tub tonight, but under faucet all good and dry on inside. Plus, it is nice looking!
