Golite Galaxy

This men’s backpacking rucksack only weighs 1620g; 62+8 litres capacity; stiff back panel to resist pressure from rucksack contents; hydration system-compatible floating lid; good for 15kg loads; mesh wand pockets; side compression straps; two large front pockets; available in three back lengths. But floating lid could allow water to seep into main compartment; not as comfortable as heavier ‘sacks; buckles snap far more easily than other rucksacks.

Verdict: Buy it if you are travelling light and need a basic ‘sack for your minimal camping gear.
