Vango Flux 30

This 30-40 litre rucksack weighs 900g, which is relatively light; well-padded back system; single lid buckle; mesh side pockets and compression strap; elasticated front compressor; small snow-lock extension; hydration system-compatible; good lid pocket; reinforced base. But the webbing straps are not as smooth-running as pricier options; light fabric not the most durable.

Verdict: A light and practical daysack for a variety of situations.
