Lafuma Active 30 rucksack (2008)

Review
This ultralight rucksack has a 30 litre capacity; stiffened back with airflow and padded zones; small side pockets; unique compression system provides excellent stability; front gear compressor; front pocket; hipbelt with padded fins and zipped pockets; hydration system-compatible; durable materials. But it’s a bit heavy at 828g; rather small side pockets.
Verdict
A good, stable rucksack with unusual features that make it good for adventure racing, but the weight is not ideal.
