Which new backpack?


Pegasus

Recommended Posts

Had a WCW backpack for 18 months. Pretty happy with it apart from the lid thread being rubbish and too often the lid coming off in my hand when using it as a handle. Also both the speeds seem too quick now to be efficient with water use

 

Anyway, need a 30 foot pole now for big houses and thinking of either getting the Bayersan one (the white one with green lid) or the new gardiner one with a proper handle.

 

Would like any views on general all round brush, pole and good backpack.

 

Thanks in advance.

Evening Pegasus. I am looking for a decent backpack as well....I am trad but feel a backpack would help me with some of the awkward/dangerous windows that I have. What make of backpack have you been using?

I had the Big Boy pack from WCW. It's done a decent job (good holding charge)apart from the odd issue. I mentioned the lid thread. You would never put it on your back so I just lug it round but when the lid regularly comes off the cheap design must be questioned.

 

Also my connector lead from backpack to pole is getting shorter and shorter. As this tube is pretty rigid rubber with wear and tear it splits at the backpack end so you must cut off and make a new plug with tape to stick in and tighten with the nut.

 

I was impressed when I borrowed a white one with green lid: good lid thread, 3 speed but maybe a bit small.

 

Anyway going to maybe try the he's Gardiner one.

 

I only use an estate car and happy staying with that. No plan for a van.

My orange wcw is great. Been going for 2 years now. Decent handle to. I also found with the big boy the lid kept coming away when lifting it. Use it as a spare now. Also happy doing trad. Will never go full wfp. I just think trad does a better job for me but the backpack is defiantly worth having for them windows above Connies.
