This is a review of the Mountain Warehouse Endeavour 12L Backpack. This backpack is surprisingly affordable and surprisingly well made and has a lot of great organizational pockets to keep everything in place. The bag is aimed at those looking for a hiking backpack or an active pack. I say this mainly because it has a hydration hole in the top and sternum straps built in.
Starting with the build quality it is very well made and feels like it would be more expensive than it is. It has a comfortable mesh back and the straps are well padded and comfortable too. It has a retail price of AUD$62 or USD$42 (33 GBP) but it is regularly on sale for a price of AUD$30 or USD$20 (16 GBP). At this price its an absolute steal. Especially for all the features you get.
The fabric is not specified on the website but it feels like a durable nylon. It is somewhat water resistant but not waterproof. Water will still soak into the back padding and the non waterproof zippers. There are 3 smaller pockets on the outside of the bag in addition to the 2 mesh water bottle pockets. Inside the main compartment is a rear sleeve (which can fit a max 13” laptop) and at the top another small hidden stash pocket. The larger front pocket has a couple of mesh pockets and a smaller zippered pocket as well as a key clip. The smaller pocket on the front of it is just an empty pocket.
There’s a lower zippered pocket on the bottom front of the bag which I found very useful for power banks or sunglasses. The bag is 12L in capacity which may sound small but is actually surprisingly roomy. It would make a great day pack or hiking bag depending on your needs. I decided to see how much I could fit in and was quite surprised. I was able to fit my 13” macbook pro in the rear sleeve. A small packing cube with some clothes. My tech pack (which you can see the review of here) and my camera packing cube. This means it could easily be useful for short getaway trip or even a weekend trip for me.
Overall a really great little bag at a fantastic price. I would highly recommend checking it out if you’re in the market for a new daypack for hiking bag.
