A decent-sized 22L pack with enough space for everything you’ll need on a short day-walk. The zipped main compartment is easy to access, and there’s also a large front pocket, external stash pocket, mesh side pockets and two waistbelt pockets. A handy side-access zip runs the whole length of the back system – a great way of reaching something buried right at the bottom. The waistbelt and shoulder straps are soft, padded and flexible, and they transfer the weight of the pack directly on to the waistbelt so that even heavy loads feel comfortable. The back system has no reinforcement, though, so pack hard objects with care.
Main compartment closure: Zip
Back system: Active Trail Suspension suspended mesh
Accessories: stretch-mesh pocket; fleece-lined gadget pocket
