Tatonka Luna 45

This 41-50 litre rucksack is the backpacker’s dream. It has features for the hill while also fitting all the criteria for heading off around the world. The pack comes with a zip-out divider and an opening at the base so you can easily get at things you packed at the bottom or separate out dirty clothes. There is a selection of useful pockets; internal and external ones in the lid, and an OS-sized one with a mesh security pocket on the front. This pocket also zips out to allow access to the middle section of the pack. It also comes with a cute removable toiletry bag and mirror. But the Luna does have features for hill-walking and trekking such as walking pole attachments, but it has more features suited for backpacking. So if you want a dedicated hill-walking pack it may be worth looking at other models. You get 10 litres more capacity than the manufacturer suggests, too.
