/ Simple no frills type rucksack
I'm wanting to find something similar, but smaller, maybe around say 15-20L just for when I don't need such a big sack and a bit lighter. As it'll only be used be walking mainly it doesn't need to be so durable.
Any top recommendations?
Whoops! that should be GET not "bet"! ;-)
Alpkit's do a 20l Gourdon that sounds like your cup of tea. Only £20 iirc.
Another vote for the Gourdon. Fantastic bit of kit.
Lowe Alpine used to make a decent very small sac, also Exped too, I think.
I have a Gourdon 25 and a 30. I think the 25 is a generous 25 and more suitable for that type of sac. The 30 is OK but maybe just a tad big for such a simple design - hangs low and back a bit, proportionally fat.
The 25 is a bit better proportioned, imo. It may not speak so highly of me ...
Pretty much any of the budget outdoor shops have some good looking sacs by the likes of Karrimor. GO Outdoors had a HiGear no frills bag for about £20 which I think I would have bought if I was in that market at the moment.
