Vango Sherpa

£50.00

This is a 41-50 litre rucksack that is better suited to backpacking rather than day walking. This is not a bad thing, as what it does, it does very well. The back system is not only fully adjustable, but it also lengthens for a more precise fit. The pack can be compressed from both the sides and the base, and ...

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 ...

Vaude Triset 35 + 8

£55.00

This daysack from Vaude has adjustable shoulder straps that help it to mould sweetly around your back, and the Aeroflex concave back system is cool and comfortable. You hardly know you’re carrying it, even when full, and the padded waist belt is excellent. This is a roomy pack, but the compression straps make it easy to tighten everything down when ...

Vaude Triset Ultralight 35 2009

£55.00

If you want to go lighter, try this slim-fitting rucksack with a well-vented back. At 775g the Vaude Triset Ultralight 35 is almost as light as the OMM Classic Marathon 32, but features a more complex back system and comfy mesh hipbelt that’s useful if you really can’t bear back sweat. The curved mesh back doesn’t eat into the main ...

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 ...

Osprey Stratos 24

£60.00

This daysack from Osprey benefits from a long, slim shape, and the Aircore concave back system feels incredibly comfortable, no matter what the load. Excellent padding on the hips and shoulder straps. It seems huge for its claimed 24 litres, and is really easy to pack due to the long main compartment zip. The pockets aren’t quite as good as ...

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 ...

The North Face Terra 35

£60.00

This daysack from The North Face fits well and you’ll enjoy carrying it. But it needed careful packing when very full, as it is easily pushed out of shape so that the actual back of the pack makes contact with you, rather than the foam padding. The Terra is a good size for weekend trips, and the choice of pockets, ...

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 ...

OMM Classic Marathon 32 2010

£60.00

The OMM Classic Marathon 32 sets the standard for mountain marathon and hill running events by being incredibly well-thought-through and functional. At 680g it isn’t the lightest pack available, but the added weight works hard: the back panel pulls out to form a half-length sleep mat, and side bungees and outside netting can be used to stash waterproofs and clothing ...

Deuter Futura 32 AC

£65.00

Well-padded shoulder straps and hip fins make this Futura rucksack a comfortable pack to carry and there’s plenty of adjustment in the chest strap. It’s slightly shorter in the back than others at this price point. The Futura is about as good as it gets on the hill with excellent hydration system compatibility, a good rain cover and useful compression ...

Osprey Kestrel 38

£75.00

This Kestrel rucksack is a long pack with a unique back system – a large pad of ridged foam with a central channel. It fits well and feels cool and comfortable. Very comfy hip fins, too. It’s a little large for average winter/weekend use and rather over-engineered for the purpose, too. But it’s well-featured and we liked the unique hydration ...

Aarn Marathon Magic 30 rucksack (2008)

£90.00

ReviewDeveloped by top New Zealand adventure racing athlete Marcel Hagener, this ultralight rucksack is designed to limit energy output and enhance balance, agility and stability. The key is the balance pockets, which link the shoulder straps to the waistbelt, and the shoulder straps also slide through the pack to allow body movement. A one litre bottle can be stashed in ...

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.

Karrimor Cougar

£100.00

This rucksack from Karrimor has an easily adjustable back-length and minimum contact points, making this a comfy ’pack. Build quality is spot-on, earning it a lifetime guarantee. It has a split main compartment and a good selection of pockets, although the side ones are a little bulbous and clumsy-looking.
