Lowe Alpine Yocton 35 (2014)

£70.00

Lowe Alpine returned in 2013 with the Yocton range, and it’s a strong rebirth for a brand so associated with the rucksack. The Yocton 35 doesn’t try to do anything radical, though its back system is an interesting thicket of springy cord mesh that manages to be supportive while retaining airflow. The rest of the sack’s features are fairly conventional ...

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 ...

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 ...

Lowe Alpine Airzone Centro 35+10 (2011)

£100.00

This is an excellent, technical pack with lots of features common to larger packs. In fact it will work well for overnight trips too, with its expandable 10 litres of extra capacity. The floating lid can be adjusted to hold more in the main compartment, and there are plenty of compression straps to expand or contract the pack as necessary. ...

Lowe Alpine Airzone Centro ND35 (2011)

£100.00

A classic walking pack that’s durable, comfortable, and carries loads with ease. There’s slightly less room in the main compartment than some, but there’s a large expansion pocket on the front (perfect for carrying waterproofs), and a really useful zip pocket for storing kit you want quick access to. The lid pockets are on the small side, though. It’s got ...

Lowe Alpine Mintaka Air ND35

£55.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a comfortable back system with a decent amount of padding and good lumbar support. The nicely contoured shoulder straps are good, too. Bigger busted women may not find the chest strap long enough. The Pure Air Zone back system creates a good flow of air without feeling unstable. However, this pack doesn’t have any ...

Lowe Alpine Bear Tooth Air 35

£70.00

This daysack from Lowe Alpine has a unique adjustable back system which ensures it will fit most walkers. However, with shorter people, the lid pocket may obstruct head movement when adjusted to the shortest back lengths. A big pack with a main compartment that can be split into two – ideal for weekend walks etc. The pockets were also excellent. ...
