Vaude Rock Ultralight Comfort 25 rucksack (2008)

This ultralight rucksack is very light at 636g; superb value; back plate twists with body and aids comfort and stability; mesh pockets; compression system; zipped lid pocket. But its 25 litres capacity means you may have to make sacrifices; lacks extra pockets for snacks; not as reflective as other packs; no accessory cord bungee for stashing extra gear; no hydration system pocket.

A superb lightweight sack that’s best for walkers and bikers.
