Vango Aitrek 30+5

A pack that takes many of its design cues from larger packs built to carry more weight. It’s also one of the few packs to have an adjustable back system. Good in theory, although it does add weight and fuss. The mesh back does offer plenty of venting, although the rubberised material can be a little sticky. Its curve is pretty good, allowing air to circulate without affecting capacity too much. The heaviest pack on test.
