I bought this pack for a 2-day climb I was taking to climb the Zugspitze in Germany. First of all, the backpack arrived quicker than expected and looked even better in person than in the pictures!
Since I was traveling from the US to Germany with one layover, I didn't want to check-in any of my bags and risk losing any of my climbing gear. This means I had to pack my Roamm Highline 30 to the max, probably a little more than what was intended, but I got everything in there and the pack made an international trip without any burst seams or blown out zippers...very well made! Also, even though it was loaded beyond intended capacity, the hip-belt and suspension system worked perfectly and was very comfortable and allowed plenty of breathability to keep me cool.
The Highline 30 was perfect for the two-day climb! I loved the different storage compartments. There was a larger one for all of my bigger gear, and then a smaller one to organize all of my smaller items without getting lost in the big compartment. There was also one more even smaller compartment on the very top outside for easy access to the things you might need over and over again.
Because there was a lot of rock scrambling on the hike, I brought my helmet along, and the four loops on the back of the bag fit perfectly with my helmet carrier from another one of my bags. The features of the bag are well-marked. For example, there was a clear picture on the hiking pole/ice axe loops exactly where there poles were to supposed go and where the axe is supposed to go.
This pack has taken a lot of the great features of other bags and combined them into one. I really enjoyed using this pack and look forward to other trips that will give me an excuse to buy another one of the Roamm backpacks!
Built to roam, the Highline 30 is just as comfortable as it is versatile. With the Airwave™ tensioned mesh and lightweight alloy suspension, feel free to load up all 30 liters of gear, and clock mile after mile in ventilated comfort. Durability, technical features, and adventure are built into every part of this pack, so that you’ll find yourself going longer and pushing farther than you planned. The Roamm Highline 30 is great for your commute, but it’s built to get you away from the desk and out where you belong.
