Backpack Gear Test

The bag is perfect for summer day hikes and when on multi-day hikes, as a summit or round-the-base-camp pack. It's lightweight and perfectly sized for the sort of gear I need to carry on these occasions.

Backpack Gear Test

It is small and sensible, yet provides ample space for all that is required to spend a day in the hills. The pack is comfortable and strong.
