  • The light weight makes it a perfect backpack for weekend camping and long vacations.
  • The adjustable shoulder straps with additional lumber support makes to distribute the weight for easy commuting.

  • An additional mesh bottle pocket allows you to fit in the water bottle for travelling.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • Some complained that the backpack is not as stiff and durable compared to other models.
  • The chest strap is adjustable but not very comfortable for large chests.
  • The buckles in the chest strap are not much secure and can move up to the neck.
  • The zippers on the side compartments are also reversed which can make things fall when leaning over.

It is a comfortable pack when under heavy loads and over long distances. It compresses down well for use as a day pack from a base camp. It is very well constructed and can repel a ridiculous amount of rain. Packing is easy and there are enough options for small gear storage.

My overall verdict is the Baltoro is a great backpack tons of pockets, compression straps and other features - you can really get the pack to suit your needs. The Response AFD system works a treat one of the best fits I've ever had with a rucksack of that size. The only downside really was the overall weight of the bag, although when it was on my back it really didn't make much of a difference.
