VANGO AIRVENT

Review: The Airvent concave back is cool and comfy and the shoulder straps are broad so spread the load well. The hip fins are well-padded but a little short, which affects comfort and stability a little. Slightly tighter on space than most tested but comfy to carry with good features, including useful pockets and a rain cover. Compression straps make it quite stable – even with a small load – and it seemed quite tough, too.
