Marmot Diva 35

This daysack from  Marmot is rather long, with a high back system that may prevent your head moving freely. The padding and stability offered by the harness are great, though, even with heavy loads. Despite a disappointing soft back system, which provides very little air flow, it’s stable thanks to double compression straps and a nice streamlined design.

Verdict: A very large, yet streamlined, pack that’s best suited to taller women – so check the fit before buying. Double compression straps keep loads secure, but the back fabric feels a little flimsy.
