Fjällräven Funas 35 (2014)

£98.00

Fjällräven gear is traditionally styled, high-quality equipment from Sweden. The 35-litre Funas feels incredibly well-made – the grab handle on the top is practically a thing of beauty – and the rigid, padded back system and thick belt straps definitely feel as if they’re built to last. You get a raincover, a drawstring and a cinch buckle over the main ...

Montane Medusa 32 (2014)

£80.00

The Montane Medusa 32 is the serious hillwalker’s pack of choice. Thoughtfully designed and robust, its fabric certainly feels more substantial than many other packs in our test, though this does impact slightly on weight. The back system is a chunk of foam that sits into the groove of your back well, though those who prefer the airy feel of ...

Osprey Talon 33 (2014)

£85.00

Once something of a ‘Marmite’ brand due to a strappy, fussy aesthetic many view as over-complex, Osprey is now one of the most popular rucksack makes out there due to its combination of advanced weight-distribution design, light weight, contemporary look and a well-thought-out feature set. The Talon 33 was updated for 2014 and is fast becoming a modern classic. Key ...

Deuter ACT Trail 32 (2014)

£90.00

The Deuter ACT Trail 32 is heavier than some, but is very durable with it, not least thanks to the robust fabrics and thick Aircontact back system, which allows good airflow and is padded top to bottom. The fit of this sack is good: the straps are robust and supportive, there’s a good range of vertical adjustment on the chest ...

Salomon Synapse Flow 30AW (2014)

£100.00

Clamshell-opening rucksacks are popping up more and more these days, and you’ll either love or hate them. The Salomon Synapse Flow 30AW features an all-round zip allowing you to open as much or as little of the sack as you like. This allows you to access items in the very foot of your rucksack. But if the zip breaks or ...

Salewa Miage 30 (2014)

£75.00

The Salewa Miage 30 is a 30 litre sack that is light for its feature set and extremely comfortable for its weight. You get two wand pockets either side, a spacious lid pocket, and – in an unusual touch – a vertical zip down the front that accesses the main compartment. This could have been a really nifty feature that ...

Kelty Redwing 32 (2014)

£80.00

The Redwing 32 is a quirky effort from a brand continuing to make inroads into the UK outdoor market. Kelty has a strong following helped by the versatile nature of their products. It makes gear for Special Forces, so you could expect the pack to have a rather ‘desert storm’ feel to it and it does: there are many pockets, ...

OMM Classic 32 (2014)

£70.00

One for the lightweight essentialist, the OMM Classic 32 is a popular rucksack with racers and minimalists, and it earns its chops admirably in this regard. With a ‘stripped’ weight of 555g, the Classic’s secret is that its back system can be removed and used as a short sleeping mat, which obviously enhances its appeal to those used to superlight ...

Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 (2014)

£85.00

Made – as its name suggests – for scramblers, this 30L rucksack is ideal for those who want something lean, light and equipped for the hard stuff. Consequently it’s lean on many features hillwalkers take for granted, such as a padded waistbelt, raincover, and under-lid zipped pocket – and heavy on things that might not be needed, such as gear loops ...

Jack Wolfskin Rambler 32 (2014)

£65.00

The Jack Wolfskin Rambler 32 is an excellent-value rucksack with a good feature set for the price that narrowly missed out on being featured in the final eight rucksacks. It features a suspended airflow back system that is good for controlling sweat, a pocket on the hipbelt, hydration compatibility, a rain cover, wand pockets, a zipped front compartment and a ...

The North Face Terra 35 (2014)

£90.00

The The North Face Terra 35 is a sturdy rucksack with some interesting features that no doubt will appeal to some, but light on others. You don’t get a rain cover, and the hipbelt doesn’t have any pockets; the back system doesn’t adjust (though it does come in two sizes); there’s no zipped pocket under the lid; and the back ...

The North Face Pursuit Side Zip Pant (2014)

£100.00

The North Face’s Pursuit Side Zip Pant is a reasonably lightweight option at 321g for a size medium, so you won’t mind packing this into your rucksack and carrying it just in case it rains. It’s made from a 2.5 layer fabric, meaning there is no scrim or mesh lining inside, so it may get a little more clammy than ...

Marmot Precip (2014)

£85.00

To stay dry in the hills, walkers need not only great clothing design but also a great fabric. The Precip is a well-established lightweight jacket but this year Marmot has introduced a new fabric to its range called NanoPro, claiming it is 43 per cent more breathable than the brand’s previous coated fabric. This could make the Marmot Precip the ...

Kayland Comet Mid (2014)

£130.00

The Kayland Comet Mid has got to be the coolest-looking boot on the market at the moment. Slick suede uppers with understated style that would be at ease in any urban setting belie a pair of very capable climbing boots. The uppers are very supportive yet ultra-comfortable, thanks to well-thought-out and nicely balanced use of padding and layering. Inside a ...

Black Diamond ReVolt (2014)

£70.00

The Black Diamond ReVolt is designed to meet the increase in the availability of USB recharging facilities, such as laptop computers, solar panels and battery packs.

Petzl Tikka RXP (2014)

£90.00

Petzl has dominated the headtorch market for decades and its latest advance, Reactive Lighting technology, is now being used in the Tikka RXP. The torch can pump out 215 lumens, which is enough to light up navigational features at some distance; but what’s really neat is that the Reactive Lighting technology allows the torch to automatically adjust the amount of ...

Vango Transalp 30 (2014)

£50.00

The best thing about the Transalp is the ease of access: the entire front panel unzips and flips up if you lie it down, allowing instant access to the contents. It fits securely and the back system is a pleasing mix of padded panels and subtly concave suspension, which means air can circulate around your back without the load being ...

Vaude Triset 35+8 (2014)

£77.00

This colossal pack swallows anything: jacket after fleece after drybag went flying in with no problem, even before we’d expanded the extra side storage areas and shoved in two more jackets. The lid pocket is equally cavernous. Yet while it feels like a sack in the loading, when worn it disperses the weight with ease and feels incredibly secure and ...

Fjallraven Friluft 35 (2014)

£115.00

A virtually flawless rucksack which is a pleasure to wear thanks to some hugely supportive hip-fins that are so sturdy, they almost massage your lower back as you walk. Packing is a little tricky if you’ve put in a hydration system, but it still takes a lot of filling. A curved aluminium frame makes it very light and the bottom ...

Osprey Kyte 36 (2014)

Like all Osprey packs this is sleek, beautiful and packed with features. It has a really effective back system which is adjustable via a Velcro panel, and lets your back breathe without impeding your packing. The shoulder straps and hip-belt really are designed for a woman. The hip-fins encircle the torso almost completely and contain two huge pannier pockets – ...

Lowe Alpine Yocton 35 (2014)

£70.00

A great-looking, slimline pack with robust face fabric, devoted to moving light and fast rather than with all mod cons. There’s no rain cover, for one thing. Nothing is chunky here; the shoulder straps are narrow with very minimal padding, and the attachment and compression straps are also slim and lightweight, as are the clips which connect them. It sits ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30+6 (2014)

An exceptionally comfortable, robust and intuitive rucksack. The adjustable sliding harness is easy to master so you really can tailor it to your height. Bright internal panels mean it’s easy to find what you’re looking for, and it has a removable internal divider: you can shrink the main section for smaller loads (and use the lower section for something you ...

Deuter ACT Trail 28 (2014)

£90.00

This one prides itself on its attention to feminine detail, not least in the lovely faux-flower that comes attached to it. The shoulder straps curve neatly round the bust and the weight disperses neatly round the hips, establishing it as a genuine women’s pack. The capacity is huge for the stated 28L; the main compartment is very deep and there’s ...

Icebreaker Oasis (2014)

£70.00

Here comes the merino champion: luxurious, comfortable and expensive. Unlike the coarse, itchy wool which comes from your bog-standard sheep, merino sheep produce exceptionally fine and soft wool which feels like silk next to the skin. And with this top, Icebreaker have engineered it into a top-of-the-range, deluxe base-layer. Made from 100% merino, the Oasis is tailored to be snug ...
