The North Face Terra 35

This daysack from The North Face fits well and you’ll enjoy carrying it. But it needed careful packing when very full, as it is easily pushed out of shape so that the actual back of the pack makes contact with you, rather than the foam padding. The Terra is a good size for weekend trips, and the choice of pockets, which includes a large one in the lid, two bellowed ones at the side and two good-sized mesh ones below these, is excellent. It’s light, too.

Verdict: A versatile, lightweight pack with plenty of room and some useful pockets. Very comfortable, as long as it’s not stuffed completely full.
