Lowe Alpine Airzone 25

The Lowe Alpine Airzone 25 unisex rucksack has a great back system and we really like its hip fins, which are light and comfy yet grip like limpets! The Lowe Alpine Airzone 25 has mesh shoulder straps also help to make this a really comfortable pack. The small lid pocket and a hydration pocket seem too low. With no compression straps, it's also less stable than some.

Capacity: 25 litres
Main compartment: Lid/drawcord
Back system: AirZone (concave)
Other features: Rain cover, pole holder, mesh side pockets, zipped front pocket
Colours: Including terracotta/slate grey

Verdict An amazingly comfortable pack to carry, but we’d like to see a larger lid with room at least for gloves, hat and sunglasses, and also side compression straps.
