Vaude Triset 35 + 8

This daysack from Vaude has adjustable shoulder straps that help it to mould sweetly around your back, and the Aeroflex concave back system is cool and comfortable. You hardly know you’re carrying it, even when full, and the padded waist belt is excellent. This is a roomy pack, but the compression straps make it easy to tighten everything down when needed, so the load always feels stable. It has good-sized bellowed side pockets – perfect for a flask – and a useful lid pocket.

Verdict: Rugged and well designed, the Triset is a superb pack with good features and plenty of adjustment where needed. Excellent value for money, too.
