This one prides itself on its attention to feminine detail, not least in the lovely faux-flower that comes attached to it. The shoulder straps curve neatly round the bust and the weight disperses neatly round the hips, establishing it as a genuine women’s pack. The capacity is huge for the stated 28L; the main compartment is very deep and there’s an expanding side compartment, although as there is only one, it can slightly affect your balance when loaded. Brilliantly, the front panel of the main compartment opens like a suitcase lid, allowing you instant access to everything – a huge bonus if you’re also carrying kids’ kit on a family walk. There’s one smallish pannier pocket.
