Berghaus Freeflow 40 (2014)

£90.00

The Freeflow range of rucksacks from Berghaus have been popular for many years, and in the latest versions they get an adjustable back length so you can be sure that the sack fits you. Of course others may fit you straight off the peg, so this itself isn’t necessarily a big advantage. However, the Freeflow back system does hold the ...

Berghaus Vapour 20 (2014)

£60.00

This is a very unusual rucksack from Berghaus, designed to meet the needs of those taking part in single-day or overnight racing events. The weight of 688g includes a 73g water bottle, which is stored in the base of the rucksack in a dedicated pocket.

Berghaus Bioflex Light 50 (2013)

£120.00

The Berghaus Bioflex Light 50 tips the scales at the same weight as 2012’s £140 Bioflex 45, so you’re getting more pack for the same weight and less cash this year. However at 1630g this pack is still the heaviest in our test. The Bioflex back system comprises of a rotating hipbelt, so the body of the pack stays still ...

Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 (2013)

£100.00

The Berghaus Bioflex Light 35 features a lighter version of the standard Bioflex system to allow improved freedom of movement via a rotating hipbelt. The back system also has an adjustable back length, which allows the shoulder straps to move up or down on a pair of alloy bars. I did find adjusting the back length a little messy compared ...

Berghaus Limpet 20 (2012)

£55.00

Designed as a stable pack for fast sport, the Berghaus Limpet 20 utilises a compression system that attaches to the hipbelt so the sack fits closely and remains stable. The Limpet does sit comfortably and the compression system that links to the hipbelt means that when you make a big movement through the hips the sack sits closer to your ...

First test: Berghaus Bioflex 60+15 (2012)

£180.00

Berghaus first introduced its Bioflex back system in 2005 to rave reviews. The latest incarnation is lighter, and – on first appearances – completely different from the original. The Bioflex system is designed to flex and move with your body as you walk, while ensuring that the load remains stable and well-balanced on your back. This has the effect of ...

Berghaus Bioflex 45 (2012)

£140.00

Prepare yourself for a totally different sensation when walking with this backpack, as Berghaus unleashes its BioFlex technology on the world. This unique back system sees the hipbelt pivot with you as you move, allowing you to bend forward and flex without being encumbered by your load. It does feel odd at first and takes some getting used to – ...

Berghaus Freeflow 35+8 (2011)

£80.00

A great pack for all-round walking, with an extra eight litres of expandable capacity for when you need to carry a bit more kit. The Freeflow back system is excellent, with minimal contact across the majority of the back and excellent padding in areas where it’s needed (hips and shoulders). The padding around the waistbelt is solid enough, and extends ...

Berghaus Freeflow 20

£50.00

A streamlined little pack, with no little straps and fiddly bits to get in the way. On the back it does feel quite small and the length of this particular model is short. There are no compression straps, but the curved design and relatively compact capacity means that they’re not really missed. The back system is an updated version of ...

Berghaus Torridon 65 2011

£75.00

The Torridon is a new pack from Berghaus aimed at those who need the size and carrying capacity of a fully featured, multi-day backpack, but don’t want to break the bank. It’s only one of two packs here with an adjustable back system and is the only one with traditional zipped side pockets. It’s also the only one under £100. ...

Berghaus Freeflow 40

£90.00

H-shaped back system is good with a reduced contact area. It does make it a little wider than some of the others on test, though. The system also has a reduced curve that helps keep the centre of gravity forward. Perforated shoulder straps might look a bit NASA but they do a decent job of letting air in. The hip ...

Berghaus Freeflow Pro 40 2010

£100.00

The Berghaus Freeflow Pro 40 will appeal to those who like ventilated back systems. Trampoline netting is cut away so you have less contact area, and the aluminium poles have a reduced curve, keeping the pack closer to your centre of gravity. At around 1550g it’s midweight, and well-featured with a comfortable cutaway hipbelt with two mesh pockets and three ...

Berghaus Arête 45 2008

£50.00

The Arête 45 is a wonderfully simple and functional rucksack, and at only 1045g it deserves to be high on the wants list of anyone heading to the hills. The sack has a simple padded back system, hipbelt and shoulder straps that allow you to throw it on your back and forget about it. The back is stiff enough to ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30 + 6

£60.00

The re-designed Freeflow rucksack has a longish back that fits perfectly. The padding is also spot-on for a pack of this size – comfy without being over-elaborate. We loved the ultra-breathable EVA breathe-mesh shoulder straps – they really do feel cool and dry – and there’s plenty of up and down adjustment in the chest strap. Difficult to fault, even ...

Berghaus Antaeus 45+8

£70.00

This 41-50 litre rucksack is a reliable all-rounder. The back system can be adjusted in all the usual ways, as well as being lengthened to obtain a more precise fit. There is also a good selection of pockets: a good OS map-sized one on the front of the pack and two compressible side pockets. These are useful as you can ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30+6

£60.00

The design of this daysack is useful if you are away overnight as it uses a zip-out/Velcro inner section to split the pack into two. Access is gained via the pocket at the base, while the Velcro allows you to carry tent poles even when you are using the divider. The back system is well-vented and has soft, mesh-filled shoulder ...

Berghaus Freeflow III 35 + 8

£60.00

This daysack from Berghaus is very comfortable. You’ll hardly notice you’re carrying it – even when fully loaded – which says a lot about the Freeflow back system. However, it does carry the load away from the back, which can affect stability. The 35+8-litre capacity sounds huge, and it’s superbly featured, with everything you could wish for, including excellent pockets ...

Berghaus C7 1 Series

£100.00

This rucksack from Berghaus has the very impressive Bioflex back system, which can be adjusted while you’re actually wearing it. It also swivels slightly as you move, meaning it doesn’t pull you off balance. It’s well built, with good pockets, and is an ideal size.

Berghaus Freeflow III

£45.00

This 25-litre daysack from Berghaus uses the Freeflow back system, which is very comfortable. It’s a good length, and the padded contact points are perfectly placed. The shoulder straps are heavily padded and well shaped, and the waist belt sits sweetly on your hips, bearing much of the load. The single buckle main compartment is roomy enough for a generous ...
