The Vango Airtrek offers a rain cover, adjustable ventilated back system, good pockets and a relatively comfy carry. It is hydration-compatible with a useful external pocket on the rear for carrying waterproofs or easy access layers. But it’s relatively heavy at around 1700g and lacks the comfort factor of packs in the next price bracket up.

The Vango Airtrek is a very good option that is an improvement on cheaper packs but doesn’t quite compete with packs further up the price scale.
