I've been running my Weka for the last couple of years... I am a hunter.. I travel light.. base weight around 6.5-7.5kg.. But when I'm coming out from a trip my pack can be up around the 20-25 kg range.. Now that's a good test for a small 40 litre pack.. To be honest I love my Weka, but it's got a couple of silly design features that annoy me.. First up the waist and sternum straps are far to thin, the earliest opportunity I changed the straps at my local canvas guy... The front pocket stretchy thing is a bit weird and I'd be happier with a standard old school pocket like on my old ravine.. But apart from that it is just a bloody good all round solid pack.. It's seen me through some great trips, up to 5-6 days and carried some horrendous loads without any fails.. If I were to lose it... I'd get another...

An almost-excellent versatile short-trek trip Pack!
PROS: The Weka 40 is a very versatile pack for general trekking/hiking. The eco Aztec is light and water resistant. The elasticated pockets and the front flap makes it flexible for bottles, bladder bags ropes/webbing, jackets to be stuffed in quickly. The semi-firm back panel is lined with a light grey nylon which helps see things that are inside the bag better. Two lid pockets (inner and outer) and a front pocket make the Weka 40 so useful.

CONS: My main peeve: The top upper lid pocket on the lid is not in the traditional place which is nearer the back straps. This zipper is placed further towards the front edge of the lid. Two problems arise from this: 1) It's more difficult to reach the pocket when you're wearing the pack. 2) The top panel of the lid can be a water catchment and the zip a gutter: Unless the pack is stuffed to the brim, the lid will be lying downwards. Which means that in the event of rain, the whole top section of the lid becomes a catchment panel that guides rainwater to the zip, and the zip becomes a little gutter, collecting water into the pocket. The thin nylon that separates the inner and outer lid pockets do not prevent the collected water to be isolated only in the outer pocket, so things in the inner pocket also get wet. Traditional lids have the zip close to the top of the back straps. having little or no 'catchment' effect. There is only one compression strap at the upper part of the pack which works with the front flap. But no lower compression strap. Including a lower compression strap would be useful, particularly after the elastic sides start to lose their elasticity and sag.

ALTERNATIVE COMMENT: I think the waist strap pockets are sufficiently sized for most needs - mobile phones, keys, small multitools, etc. Overall, an excellent light and tough pack for overnight / 2-3 day trips. Highly recommended. Pack experience: Macpac Pursuit 55 (1993, 2004), Kauri, Kahu 22, Tuatara 25, Atlas Aztec, Rapaki 26; Osprey Aether 90, Vaude 75, Aking 30. Main uses: tropical trekking & camping.

Overall the Weka 40 is a great daypack, the design is quite clever and when loaded up it is extremely comfortable to wear. The downsides are the hipbelt pockets are too small for practical use and the hipbelt and chestbelt buckles are tiny.
