    I have a Gardiner backpack and very impressed with it, easy buy at 105 quid delivered. The only downside I've found is the metal clips aren't strong enough on the straps. So use handle instead.

    Not too many people keep backpacks on their back, but stuck them on a sack truck. So, if you are feeling handy, you could make one! Look up DIY Trolley on the DIY section on here. (Sorry I'd give you a link but its a pain when posting on tapatalk).

    I have/had a big boy back pack, there is a review to it somewhere on this forum (same link problem as above)

    All you really need to think about with a backpack is the quantity of water it will hold and the pump - psi and lpm. Have a look on ebay there are a few less expensive ones on there.

    Carrying the big boy backpack handle with water in it will snap the handle off. I sometime used big boy backpack but only on the trolly.

    Buying a backpack just to fit on a trolley seems a bit daft to me ! Just but a trolley surely ?
    Is the bigboy 18ltr ? Your going to spend all your day filling it up ??
    Is it just for tops or awkward windows or for everyday every house usage ?
