Rated 5 out of 5 by Nici from Just the right size Very happy with the quality, the size is perfect I am 170 cm tall and this does not look big and bulky, when we can travel overseas again, this will carry everything I need for a month of travel. Can also be checked in. Went for an overnight hike up Mt Bartle Frere (highest mount in Qld). Carried my food, supplies, sleeping bag and water - very comfortable. Kathmandu also do a fitting for you when it is loaded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelJB from Great pack I'm of a smaller frame so this design is perfect for me around the shoulders, chest and hips. A few easy access pockets with a large internal space makes organising things a breeze. I also like the pockets on the waist bel, something my previous packs haven't had before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJRT47 from Well thought out excellent design I bought this pack a month ago for serious day tramps of 6-8 hr duration. Very happy with it. If redesigning especially for me, I would add soft padding at bottom back area as the seam can rub on a scar wound I have on my spine when on hot days just wearing a Kathmandu LS shirt.

Where exactly do you attach the hiking poles? I've tried multiple places and they just flop about.
Looking at the front of the pack, there are two elastic toggles (one on the daisy chain, one further down the pack) - we'd recommend storing hiking poles going through those two elastics, and tightening to reduce wobbling.

If 32l is not suitable for a multi-day hike in your view, what size would be? Surely even some of your daypacks have daisy-chains (e.g. Rapaki)? Aroha nui te whanau
If you're a lightweight packer, or just going overnight, you could normally get by with a pack between 35L and 50L. For multi-day hikes where you’ll be carrying kit like shelter, sleeping gear, clothing for different conditions and all your food, a 50L + bag is probably the best backpack for you. It really comes down to personal preference, and how much gear you need to take with you.

How does the Nowaki 32 L women's pack (in grey above), differ from the standard Nowaki 32L pack (in black and orange) at the same price? Are their any differences in the straps or anything else?
The main difference is the womensFIT technology – a contoured hip belt with shoulder straps and a back length that are all designed specifically for women’s bodies

Is it just me or is it really hard to get the bladder in the space provided? I only have a 1.5 bladder but it’s a very tight fit, even when empty.
The current Nowaki is designed to comfortably hold the Hydration Bladder 2L. It will however take the older 1.5 LTR - Hydration Bladder Basic, but the WLP - Pro will definitely be a bit of a squeeze.

Is there anyway to attach a tent (approx 58-60cm in length)? In the side pockets or inside the bag itself, or is there a loop for it that isn't visible in photos
There are no attachments on the outside of this pack to attach a tent, this is a feature of the bigger multi-day hike packs. This is a suitable pack for a day hike not for over night hikes. If you are wanting to take a tent with this pack you would need to try and fit it inside with the rest of your gear.

Will this pack fit a sleeping bag for a one night hike?
I bought this pack for my 10-year old daughter for an overnight hike at the end of September (and aim to do another 3-night hike with it next year). She just has a cheap sleeping bag that we bought a compression sack for and compressed it down to fit. She didn't have to carry any cooking gear but she could fit everything else in that she needed for the hike (including food/drink for the days)... she had a compact travel towel, blow up pillow etc to ensure more space too.

Hi Where do you attach the light at the back?
The attachment point is at the base of the main clip strap, between the two daisy chains, where the light and dark fabric meet.

Does this backpack have a built-in rain over?
No this doesn't have a built in rain cover. We would recommend a Pack Raincover (size small) if you are wanting additional weather protection, alternatively you could use dry-sacks/liners.
