Fjällräven Friluft 55 (2014)

£155.00

  The Friluft range of packs from Fjällräven all have a ventilated back system, to allow more airflow. The mesh holds the sack away from the back and it also provides a comfortable form of springy contact with the back. But there’s a panel of foam down each side that effectively prevents easy airflow across the back, so for me ...

Craghoppers Kiwi Long/ Madigan Long (2014)

£100.00

One of the most common requests we get at Trail is for more reviews of longer waterproof jackets. So here goes! The Craghoppers Kiwi for men and Madigan for women come in a ‘standard’ version (£90) and the Long version featured here at £100.

Lightwave Wildtrek 60 (2014)

£160.00

Haglöfs Matrix 60 (2014)

£150.00

Haglöfs isn’t a brand I’d normally think of when choosing a big rucksack, but the Matrix 60 is a good, workmanlike piece of kit. The back length can be adjusted by raising or lowering the shoulder straps on their Velcro panels. The shoulder straps and hipbelt are both well-padded and stiffened to spread the load, though they lack the finesse ...

Osprey Exos 58 (2014)

£140.00

I’ve been a fan of the Osprey Exos 46 for many years, and this is its bigger (58 litre) brother. For 2014 Exos packs have all had a facelift, which includes some rather comfortable cushioned mesh-covered shoulder straps. These have no hard edges so they sit beautifully on the shoulders. The hipbelt uses the same material. You get an updated ...
