Not as good as my old Monashee 40

I use this backpack everday for commuting on my push bike. Comfortable but the stitching has come undone after approximately six months of use.

Happy I got another for Ms

Perfect no fault .. for aircraft cabin size or hiking .. and my back felt cool and comfortable.

happy with bag and service

Haven’t actually used it yet but sure looks the part .. perfect size for lite-style traveling and flying with cabin bag only.

Great overnighter

I purchased this to do an overnight walk- fits sleeping bag, change of clothes and some food perfectly - light weight and good support. Snowy's price best by far

Fit for purpose

Well built and well thought out day pack. A lot of thought has gone into the design of this product, notably the wire frame that allows ventilation of your back, built in rain cover, numerous pockets and secure shoulder and waist straps. The Wolf Tempo is also really light considering its features and capacity. Not exactly cheap but I'm very happy with my purchase.

Great bag

Decent size bag holds plenty of stuff. The air light harness worked well preventing a sweaty back. Black wolf customer service was great too when querying bag functionality. Well made and delivered quickly.


Is there one big zip to main compartment plus 2 pocket zips shown in picture?1 answer

Hello, I cannot tell from picture but is there a main compartment with a bigger zip plus the two zippers that you can see clearly in the picture?

- Pomonal(5 months ago)

Yes that's right Sue, There's one main compartment with a sleeve for your bladder and then a small top pocket on the outside of the pack as well as a front side pocket.  Perhaps viewing the picture in different colours will give you a clearer view.

Lost Strap2 answers

I've had this backpack for about a year and it's great but unfortunately, one of the pole straps has been lost. Are there spare parts available?

- Craigmore, SA(5 months ago)

G'day Mal, 

The pole strap isn't readily available, but I've given the spare parts and warranties guy over at Black Wolf a call - and he isn't going to be in again until next Tuesday. 

He might be able to find one off an old pack and send it to us, so I will give him a call again on Tuesday and see if we can get our hands on one for you Mal. 

- Snowys(5 months ago)

Hi Mal, 

I've got hold of the right person at Black Wolf, and the good news is that we are able to get a spare pole strap in. 

All we need from you is a few more contact details and a picture of the part of the bag missing the strap. If you could send us an email at then we can get right on it.

Hi,Is it carry on size?1 answer

- PERTH, WA(2 years ago)
Hi Rodney, there is nothing that states this bag is carry on approved, but from some quick research it seems to be within most carry on luggage allowances when full. Check with your airline first though, the information is easily found online.

Does the Temp 40L you have in stock have the Air suspension back?1 answer

Hi - the BW site shows the air suspension back for the Tempo 40L: However, your site shows a padded back. Please confirm which back your stock has. Thanks, Jeremy

- MACQUARIE PARK, NSW(2 years ago)
Hi Jeremy, the Tempo has always had the Air Light harness. It is hard to see in the image, but the harness pictured on our site is the same image Black Wolf have, which features the mesh panel to separate your back from the pack. The products we have in stock reflect the same features.
