Karrimor Trail 35

This daysack from Karrimor is pretty comfortable, with plenty of padding on the hip belt and a fairly cool channelled back system. The padded shoulder straps are well shaped and the chest strap offers plenty of adjustment. The Trail is a short pack with a boxy shape that makes it feel a little unstable. The choice of pockets is good, but some compression straps to keep the contents secure when part full would be nice.

Verdict: A traditional, well-featured rucksack at a fair price. The wide design makes it easy to pack, but the lack of compression straps means it’s more unstable than some with smaller loads.
