£80.00

If you really want to save weight, then the Terra Nova Laser 25 is the pack for you at just 365g. It is very much aimed at those wanting a fast and light pack for runs, adventure racing or bagging lots of mountains in a single day.

Lowe Alpine Lightflite 28 (2014)

£60.00

The Lowe Alpine Lightflite 28 lives up to its name with a weight of just 410g. The back panel has a wicking mesh layer with removable internal stiffening, and the AdpativeFit shoulder straps attach to the body with a narrow panel that allows them to move more easily with the torso to prevent restriction of movement. The hipbelt lacks mesh ...

Outdoor Research Cirque Pants (2014)

£110.00

Outdoor Research Cirque Pants, designed for mountaineering and alpine conditions, use a tough but stretchy soft shell fabric. A diamond crotch panel adds freedom of movement, as do articulated knees. The waist gets a soft lining, belt loops, elastication and loops for braces; plus there’s a tough scuff panel inside the ankle cuff, a boot lace hook and a zipped ...

Vaude Triset 22 (2014)

£65.00

Designed for fast hiking, the Vaude Triset 22 weighs just 661g, which is not the lightest option; but this is a more walker-orientated design than the superlight packs that are optimised for runners. The pack has a seemingly less sophisticated back design than some others, with just two strips of mesh-covered padding improving comfort, rather than the full coverings of ...

Haglöfs Rugged II Mountain Pant (2014)

£150.00

Made from a relatively heavy nylon canvas called Climatic, with triple stitching in many areas, Haglöfs Rugged II Mountain Pants are well-established, hardwearing trousers.

Black Diamond Bolt (2014)

£90.00

The Black Diamond Bolt is the heaviest sack in our test at 990g but it’s also the best-designed for hillwalkers and scramblers. It’s built around a reActiv back system, which allows your torso to move more easily, without the body of the sack rocking from side to side on every step. This is achieved by having the shoulder straps linked ...

Primus Eta Express (2014)

£95.00

The Primus Eta Express has gradually evolved into a great practical camping and backpacking stove. For £95 you get a burner with piezo ignition, a windshield, and a cooking pot with a lid that includes a colander and a plastic bowl. Everything packs into a stuffsack, but it doesn’t pack down as neatly as it could with a little more ...

Deuter Speedlite 30 (2014)

£80.00

The Deuter Speedlite 30 tips the Trail scales at 873g. But compared with lighter rucksacks it feels a little more robust and better able to handle the rough and tumble of a few years’ use in the hills when hillwalking and scrambling. I’ve used it for a year now and really love it for typical Lakeland hill trips. The back ...

Gregory Z25/J23 (2014)

£80.00

The men’s Z25 and women’s J23 are unique in our test as they have the only back system that holds the pack a few centimetres away from the torso to really promote airflow around the body. At 964g (Z25) and 790g (J23) these packs aren’t the lightest options around, but the less clammy sensation you get may well be worth ...

Kovea is a new brand to the UK, offering a range of specialist lightweight backpacking stoves.

First test: Coleman Caucasus 2 (2014)

£170.00

As the price of super-lightweight backpacking tents continues to rise beyond the budgets of many people, the ability of lower-priced tent manufacturers to come up with well-designed products is coming under the spotlight. Coleman has released a range of backpacking tents with prices from £130 to £200, which is around half the cash being demanded by the superlight manufacturers. But ...

You don’t need to spend a fortune on a gas stove if you don’t need to save every gram and don’t crave a luxury design.

Vango Compact Gas Stove (2014)

£15.00

There are lots of direct screw-on gas burners, but the Vango Compact Gas Stove offers an exceptional price with a good weight to match. It comes in at just 106g, so it’s plenty light enough for backpacking unless you’re really watching your pack and body weight, and slimming both drastically. It folds down reasonably small and packs into a supplied ...

MSR Windpro II (2014)

£90.00

Gas burners with a remote canister have the advantage of providing a more stable base for a wobbly pan of boiling water, but the canister can also be easily inverted, which has the benefit of improving performance in colder conditions. The Windpro II is the latest version of this popular MSR design and it benefits from very wide (15cm diameter) ...

Fjällräven Abisko/Tundra (2014)

No-one likes having a wet bum, so the ability to make some areas of your outdoor trousers water-resistant is very useful. Fjällräven Abisko/Tundra trousers are made from polyester / cotton, which can be treated with Greenland Wax for more water resistance. Proofing the seat, knees, thighs and ankle cuff areas is ideal for many walking situations as this then leaves ...

The North Face Casimir 27 (2014)

£100.00

I’ve been using the The North Face Casimir 27 for a year, and it’s one of my favourite lightweight packs. It tips the scales at 787g, so it isn’t the absolute lightest option, but with those few extra grams comes a great deal of extra mountain-friendly performance. The gender-specific Optifit back system is adjustable in length by raising the shoulder ...

Jetboil stoves are extremely popular with solo backpackers, thanks to their unique integrated pan design and simple but effective performance.

GoSystem Fly Ti (2014)

£15.00

If you’re really counting the grams, then saving weight on your stove may be worth considering. While there are lots of gas burners around the 70g mark, it’s rare to find one below 60g – but the GoSystem Fly Ti goes even lower at just 47g. The weight saving comes from the use of titanium and from smaller pan supports, ...

Optimus Vega (2014)

£85.00

The Optimus Vega promotes its inverted gas cylinder as ‘integrated 4-season mode’ because when inverted it performs better in cold weather. Optimus also highlights that faster boil times are possible with the gas canister inverted; but for greater efficiency and better simmer control using the gas cylinder the conventional way is better. The flame control is also at the gas ...

Osprey Talon 22 £75/Tempest 30 (2014)

The Osprey Talon 22 has been a frequent winner of Trail tests. It’s a very well-established sub-1kg day sack, with the nearest women’s-specific equivalent being the slightly larger Tempest 30. Both sacks weigh under 1kg and offer great features for hillwalkers. The main benefit is the AirScape back panel, which features a mesh covering over a ridge-moulded foam panel to ...

Lightwave’s Fastpack range is designed for winter trips or lightweight weekend backpacking trips, and they benefit from being lighter than the average with this 50 litre version weighing in at 1156g. This sack also appears to be larger in volume than some other 50 litre sacks so you may even feel the Fastpack 40 at £120 is big enough. The ...

But you are getting a superb set of features here, which many lighter rucksacks cannot boast. Firstly the back system ...
