Eurohike Hydro 35 2010

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.
