Reviewers like these things about the Vango Freedom

  • According to users, the Vango Freedom pack's design appears much more stylish and contemporary compared to some of the previous models.
  • Other users pointed out that it has used a durable and abrasion resistant polyester material for the body of the bag, which should fare well when traveling.
  • Testers found out that its back system looks relatively easy to adjust to suit the height, with a ladder lock design and Velcro adjustment.
  • Reviewers noted that its air mesh padding on the shoulder area, shoulder straps, and waist belt is an excellent addition for comfort and will no doubt help reduce a sweaty back in hot climates.
  • Reviewers pointed out that it has a proper sized main compartment with compression straps for holding clothes in place.
  • Other reviewers also found that it has a special drawstring gaiter that aids in keeping the stuff compact and where it is wanted to be.
  • They noticed that its main compartment has a side opening similar to that of a suitcase and has twin zips which can be locked to make it more secure.
  • Users discovered that its zips also have handy zip pullers on them to make them easier to open and close.
  • They also noted that its high visibility orange lining is designed to make it easier to find stuff in poor light.
  • Testers found that the pack includes a zip flight cover, which covers and protects the shoulder straps during flights and has its own storage pocket at the base of the backpack.
  • Reviewers pointed out that the shoulder strap is stored in a discreet pocket at the side of the pack which could be used for stashing valuables and other bits and pieces while using the strap.
