Gourdon 30

Great bag,super light with well spaced straps for big blokes so it doesn't cut into my neck whilst carrying stuff.
Totally waterproof so that when you spill your stupidly smelly fishing bait inside of the bag ,just turn it inside out and wash it,nice and easy.
My wife likes it so I might buy another colour but not for her

“still such a fantastic sack. Please don't lose the mesh pockets, but would be good to have an internal clip for keys OR a small zip pocket that can be attached.. I use it daily for a bike ride to work, rain or shine knowing nothing will get wet”

Gourdon 30

first may i say alpkit staff deserve 5 stars first class service from start to finish. For the Gourdon 30 great for my purpose light hill walking,i would be no expert on rucksacks as this is my first but i have to say it meets all my needs and very comfortable to wear and also finding it handy for light shopping great!

Best bag I've ever had

I love this bag and use it all the time, from commuting across the city to taking camping. I don't find it uncomfortable at all but really simple and practical, and it is waterproof. I've ridden through thunderstorms and everythings totally dry. I'm thinking about getting another one, for under £30 I think it's inconceivable you will find better value.

Great buy for price

I have walking for over 25 years and this is my best ever buy for price!!!I have used this for a one wild camp high up in the lakes full loaded it did feel comfy on only having a tee shirt on, despite its not so padded hip belt which was a concern when I first bought it, so yes very comfy on. Nice one guys

This was my first purchase from Appkit. Before I received the back bag I was feeling dubious since the price was relatively low compared to other packs. This pack is great, comfy straps, handy carry loop, good deep mesh pockets on the sides. Very well made and has a quality feel to the fabric. I cannot recommend highly enough this pack. If I had to be very, very picky then I would like to see in future packs a small loop on the inside to attach a carabiner for keys! Cheers Richard

Lovely product, brilliant company!

I bought this for watery adventures, scrambling down to hidden sea swims, long days at rowing events but also for hikes. I absolutely love it! The colour is beautiful (I got the Jaffa) and the bag is really well made. I'd specifically wanted a back pack dry bag but not a heavy vinyl one. The fabric is a really nice weight - not heavy but not as thin as the lighter bags on the market. I also really wanted an ethical product. Customer service was great when I phoned to make an enquiry, and the bag was dispatched really quickly. So glad I've discovered Alpkit - I will be buying more.... wetsuit is already on my wishlist!

Simple & Elegant

I recently bought this model and found it amazing. I use it for daily commute to office and fits all the logistics I need. It is definitely waterproof. It has loads of space to even to carry some groceries back home. It is perfectly designed for daily commute.

I am a bit skeptical about its comfort for a bike tour though. However, the external pouch easily holds my 3l hydration pack, which is great. I will definitely try this on a bike tour to be able to see it for myself.

Awesome bag for an awesome price.

Love this backpack

I walked the Camino de Santiago with this backpack last year, and it was brilliant. Super lightweight, and I never had to worry about putting on a rain cover. There were many envious walkers!

I see they've added some mesh side pockets to the design now, which is excellent, as I previously found carrying water the only drawback. I'll be ordering another!


Arrived pretty quick over the Atlantic! Want to use it for winter hikes, looking forward to that. For daily use and the regular big grocery and beer can shopping I'm not sure, the material is oon the thinner side.
One flaw: it really smells quite chemically inside, stays outside for venting at the moment... I know, waterproof sealing...

Mr R

Bought one of these for the daily cycle commute. It's great, though the padding in the straps and back piece could be a bit more robust. That and the lack of a small internal secure pocket (phone, wallet..essentials you want to fine quickly not root around for) are the only down sides. As I said originally bought for the commute but it soon became as attached to me as my springer. Kayaking, hiking, abseiling, bouldering, mountain biking...the list goes on. Put a secure internal pocket in it near the top, make the back padding (seat for getting your bru on) thicker and make the shoulder straps a bit more comfortable and it'd be perfect. Oh i got the day-glo yellow and it stand out amongst everything :D

No good for actually wearing.

Brightly coloured

Unless full, lacks shape and doesn't sit against my back.
Straps not well padded, so if filled it's uncomfortable for any length of time.
Shoulder straps too close at the top - I've been using for a fortnight on the bike and it results in neck pain where the hard, insufficiently padded straps dig into my neck (I've a 15" neck, so not as though I'm above average size!).

This last point, in my opinion, makes it unusable for cycling and I've now ordered another bag. In truth, I think this is not a useful 30l pack: must be full to offer shape, but strap padding insufficient for the potential weight of a 30l filled pack; and, it's basically unusable on the bike (my commute is just 40min).

I'll use this for throwing my wetsuit into -which means carrying for a couple of hundred metres from car to lake- but I don't see any other useful function.

Epic fail

Sternum strap failure with one use. Not worth the postage to return to the U.K.
