VAUDE TRISET 35+8

Review: The concave back system is cool and reasonably stable. The straps aren’t as luxurious as some, but are still comfy even when carrying large loads. This is a huge pack with as much as 43 litres of storage when stuffed to the gunnels. It’s tall and slim but has no bottom or side access, so can be tricky to get in and out of.
