The Eurohike Hydro 35’s simple back system is comfy but not too technical. It’s not too heavy at 880g, but you could strip it down to make a really good lightweight day pack offering great value for money. But its built-in dry bag was awkward to close and seemed to negate the need for the rain cover. The lid pocket has a similar rollover pocket closure, but a normal zip would be better.

The Eurohike Hydro 35 is a very good day pack that would serve most walkers very well, but you might prefer less technical closures.
