Macpac Amp Race 25 rucksack (2008)

This ultralight rucksack has a padded hipbelt with mesh zipped pockets; stiff back for comfort and stability; front and side mesh pockets with drawcords; front bungee gear compressor; compression straps; internal and external lid pocket; hydration system-compatible; more durable than most. But it weighs 874g; high price for a 25 litre sack.
Heavy, but durable and well-featured for adventure racing.
