Before I start you should know I love Karrimor stuff, even after they got bought out by Sports Direct they continued to make superb equipment at a great price. I really rate the footwear they make, I used a pair of their sandals on the SWCP and had no problems at all. I’m even wearing a pair of their boots as I write this.
This was the worst rucksack I have ever owned.
The zip on the bottom compartment lasted about three days.
The internal drawstring at the top split after a week.
But the worst thing of all was the cheap plastic clips they use to hold the straps. The shoulder straps would be tight when I started walking and slowly get looser during the day, making the pack uncomfortable to carry. A really bad design.
I did look at replacing it with a different from one their range but they all seem to use the same clips, so I’m ditching them for rucksacks completely.
