    Cracking value trail pack

    Bought this for a week's hiking in the French Alps and was delighted with it. Great value with raincover included, emergency whistle built into sternum strap fastening, hydration system and perfect capacity for day hikes in decent weather (fits light raingear/windbreaker, extra layers, food and extra water, maps, sunscreen, hat etc).

    Size, features, comfort, fit. No rigidity.

    I bought this little rucksack for doing the 3 peak challenge recently as I needed a smaller pack with lots all the features of my bigger rucksack. This was one of the only ones I found that ticked all my boxes. It did the job great. Just big enough for the essentials of a fast Nevis ascent, and small enough to be light and compact. It hugs your back well so doesn't bounce about too much when you're moving fast over rough terrain.
    It's only drawback was that there's no frame, and so it tends to lie in a heap when you take it off, but that's not that big a deal.
    Overall I'm very pleased with it and I'm looking forward to using it again.

Backpack technical tests
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly: The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
