Lundhags Ultra 35 2009

The Lundhags Ultra 35 rucksack has comfy contoured shoulder straps; top zip pocket; inside zip pocket; central pole or ice axe loop; large elasticated pocket; slightly curved vented back. But heavy at 1447g; extortionate price; our tests found it to be a massive 11 litres oversize at 46 litres; 2 huge, bellows side pockets; hipbelt too tall and stiff for rub-free uphill moves; mid-back padding protrudes and irritates.

Verdict: The Lundhags Ultra 35 rucksack’s price is off the scale; fits large people needing lots of room.
