Makes a great bike pack
I bought this to use for 2 - 3 day mountain bike trips. I chose it mainly because of the light weight, and it is a perfect size if you dont want to use racks / bags on the bike. I used it recently for a 2 day Heaphy trip. It worked perfectly. I had about 4.5 kg in the backpack (sleeping bag, clothing, food, cookware, plb/firstaid etc) Still plenty of room in it, but the roll top and side lacing means it can be pulled in tight when not full, so everything doesn't end up in the bottom. Harness works well for biking, I found it very comfortable and stable. Pockets on the hip strap are great. I had one day of torrential rain, its not completely waterproof (not surprising given the lightweight fabric), but it coped pretty well. Incidentally, the plastic bag it came packed in makes a perfect waterproof liner - don't throw it away. The only improvement I can suggest is a small zip pocket somewhere inside for bankcards, keys etc.

A truly awesome versatile Pack
I picked up my pack a fortnight ago from central Christchurch to replace my old 30 litre pack which was literally falling apart, took it home and got to know just what it was capable of.
The plan was to leave the following weekend for the Godley Glacier so packed all the gear including a tarp for three days and two nights. That filled the 28 liters with room to spare for my 5 lite food bag, total weight 7.65 kg.
The roll top is possibly the most successful design for multi sized loads and the Fiord 28 is superb providing you like top loading. The Fiord has good side compression cords and locks so the load can be held in place for a comfortable carry; there are two capacious side pockets and easily take a liter water bottle etc. On the hip belt are two more pockets big enough to carry a camera, PLB, phone and a snack. The hip belt is removable for UL summiting.Fully loaded the pack carries very well, good padded harness and load lifters snug everything down. Ready for action we set off for Tekapo Saturday morning

The weather chose otherwise, the Macaulay was up and snow was falling up the Godley Valley so plan B swung into gear; Do the Otago Gold Trail then explore the Otago Peninsula for three days. Not at all what was planned but a great trip none the less.

The Fiord 28 is a great pack which carries enough for a 5 day trip going UL with the 35 liter extension but is equally at home on a short day hike shortened down to 20/25 liters. It is well made as one would expect from Macpac and the soft back pad is just so forgiving and comfortable and cool.It even makes a nice pillow for camping!

Can I take this bag on flights as carry on luggage?
Vanilla Gorilla on Aug 22, 2019

Unfortunately I cannot say this for sure, as it comes down to each individual airline. Please check up with your airline on the measurements for carry on bags. But considering the size of the backpack, I don't think it will be an issue.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
