Lowe Alpine Airzone Centro 35+10 (2011)

This is an excellent, technical pack with lots of features common to larger packs. In fact it will work well for overnight trips too, with its expandable 10 litres of extra capacity. The floating lid can be adjusted to hold more in the main compartment, and there are plenty of compression straps to expand or contract the pack as necessary. The fabric is suitably hard-wearing with a tough, Ripstop construction. The back system works really well, allowing the maximum amount of air circulation. The cut-out sections on the waistband also sit around the hips without relying on too much padding. The pack uses the Centro adjustable back system allowing you to get a more exact fit from the pack.
