The Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 rucksack has become my best friend not just for long day hikes but also for instant overnight camping in the boondocks.
The suspension system is superb with its patented Biolflex Technology, giving me sufficient comfort while trekking and load transfer is a great gain with its technically designed rotating hipbelt. Back ventilation is also a plus for the Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 Rucksack while trekking and wraps your body as if it is a part of you. The only glitch I have came across so far is that the suspension system can be tedious to adjust, but once the right setting or modification is achieved, trekking seems to be a luxury even on steep terrains.
I filled the rucksack with the basic necessities needed for a night in the boondocks and was amazed that it can still hold enough space for my backcountry electronic gears. The hydration sleeves and big water bottle pockets ensured no difficulty in accessing containers for refilling purposes on trail. With a fully loaded and heavy pack, the broad hip belt of the Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 Rucksack is a benefit because it can properly lift and distribute the load around the waist.
Talking more about the advantageous hip belt of the Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 Rucksack, I found great benefit likewise for the integrated zippered pockets where I stashed my on trail defense against bugs and crawling insects and also those little munchies.
My verdict: kudos to Berghaus for designing the Bioflex Light 35 Rucksack. It’s not every day that you encounter an excellent adventure rucksack.

Originally designed for adventuring racing, this pack is all I need for that overnight backpacking trip or a day at the crags doing some climbing.
Used as a technical pack, Berghaus Vapour 32 Rucksack accommodated a standard length rope, climbing hardware, harnesses, runners and slings and other necessities for a day of rock climbing. Surprisingly, with the amount of load I put in it, the rucksack held up excellently with its HALO Compression System, giving me a comfortable and stable trek up to the top of the crag for anchoring as well as on-rappel inspection.
On trail, the back system provided me with much needed stability when crossing knee deep rivers and balance on slippery stones which every outdoorsman would want in any top-loading rucksack. The hydration sleeve and the water bottle pocket can be effortlessly accessed from the exterior with no hassle at all on the main compartment assuring you proper hydration on the trail. The airflow system also gave me adequate back ventilation during hot and humid treks. Best of all, I was able to stuff all my overnight camping gear necessities in it with so much ease.
Since I want my gears to be clean as much as possible while on the wilderness, the white straps tend to get easily dirty and I don’t quite like that, but it doesn’t affect the performance and quality of the Berghaus Vapour 32 Rucksack at all.
With its light weight design and versatility, the Berghaus Vapour 32 rucksack is a must in any outdoorman’s arsenal.

Caribee Trail 30 is a day to day backpack to use. it has a rain cover that protects your things inside. It is computer-padded wherein you can carry your laptop wherever you go, from day to day work to your desired multi-day travel. It can be use as a backpack when biking on the back country because of the hydration system and waist belt lock. used this bag when I climb Mt. Pulag in Benguet in December 2012 with my husband and daughter. This bag provides comfort when I walked along the trail. I say comfort because of the cushions that acts as an added “warming jacket” on my back as the weather was too cold at that time. -Coleen Fabon
Caribee Pulse 65L backpack is a lightweight backpack I used during my climb in our 30th Anniversary in Mt. Pulag last December 2012. There is nothing extraordinary in this bag as I compare it with other brands that I used in my years of climbing experience. Without load, it’s weighing approximately 2kgs. The back support is nice with its internal aluminum stabilizer that helps the back spine and the pack jive together when carried. The shoulder strap is contoured as if it is measured exactly to my shoulder, plus the added load adjustor strap that helps the pack fit according to my desired adjustment. The sternum strap is perfectly placed as it hugs my chest when I lock it. The shoulder adjustor strap is easy to manage and adjust according to my own fit. The stabilizer strap together with the hip belt is too big for me but it’s better than none. It supports my waist to press the lower part of the back into my lumbar supported by the lumbar pad. The compression straps are just ordinary as it’s really needed and essential on every backpacks. One thing I noticed though is there are a lot of webbings that surrounds the back as if protecting the pack from tearing when loaded and prevent it from ripping. I think it is advisable to use the RIPstop type of fabric. The side pockets are not perfect for bigger water bottle. I used these pockets only for my tent poles and ground sheets. Hydration system is nicely placed on the pack and it fits perfectly with my bladder. The divider is the one I always look for in a pack because when I pack my things, I separate my tent, sleeping bag, blankets, clothings on one compartment, I usually put it on the lower portion of the pack for easy access. The upper portion of the bag are food supplies and some gears. The top load or the top hood zipper is not good for me since it is too wide and so it drops my things often.
As a whole, this pack is good for a multi-day back country travel with its lightweight features, plus the security of a rain cover to protect the bag from getting wet. -Ronald Fabon
