The price and the fact that it looks a lot like one of the older Salomon model S-Lab packs will draw many people in, especially those looking to get into longer races where you need to carry some additional mandatory kit and it’s probably not a bad option for a first pack if you’re on a budget but to be honest if you can afford to (or can save for) a bigger name pack from Salomon etc then you’ll probably get more from it longer term in terms of quality fit, materials and durability but for the money it’s not a bad pack and will also give you an idea if a race vest style pack is for you or not.
