Description

As for its mass, when empty, it doesn't even weigh 1 kg, making it reasonably light by market standards. The main nylon canvas fabric of the pack is feels very durable and is reminiscent of rucksacks of old.

The Jack Wolfskin rucksack was comfortable in use and felt well balanced with the load kept close to the body. There is also the option for a helmet holder to be attached using the dedicated docking loops on the front of the pack. On the right side, there’s a bottle pocket with stretch section and compression strap to help keep a container secure. The fabric in the main body is a 300 denier mix of polyamide and polyester, while the base is 600 denier polyester, with 50 per cent recycled content.

The Citro 24 has a steel frame running all round the perimeter of the back, which gives it good stability and load-bearing ability. The best rucksacks are the ones you can put on your back and forget about – something the best ones in our test achieved. A small pocket that sits inside the main area, but is accessed via a separate zip on top of the pack, has a hook-and-loop patch that secures against the laptop sleeve to keep any computer being carried in place. Folding the closure over three times then clipping the two buckles together makes the pack stormproof.

The two zipped mesh pockets on the fins are fairly small – big enough to take a smartphone or a compass. Why not compare those bags, instead of a random assortment that have no relation to each other, other than a wide size range? The Deuter AC Lite 23 Rucksack is the ideal pack for day hikes, with its light Aircomfort carry system and highly effective ventilation. The main large opening is designed with easy access in mind and the front zipped pocket perfectly fits a OS map. It features Deuter's Aircomfort back system for maximum ventilation, meaning you stay cool, dry and comfortable on the trail.The Osprey pack has twin stretch mesh bottle pockets on its side and it has two ice-axe or walking pole loops at the bottom. The back ventilation worked well, though the curvature of the frame does diminish the amount of space a little in the main compartment. The NadaTech back suspension worked well and the PerfectFit system enabled the right set-up to be gained quickly.

The harness spread the weight well though the lack of any ventilation did mean a moisture build-up over time.It’s built on a rigid Air Fit 2 back system with vertical frame members either side linked to cross members top and bottom, with a curved rigid plate reinforcing the rucksack. The pocket for the raincover, which is accessed via a zip on the top of the pack, sits in the upper part of the main compartment. The Edge is the smallest model in Lowe Alpine’s revamped Edge range, which is now in its fourth incarnation, having been introduced in 2008.

Pole loops easily carry two poles and side compression straps keeps your pack stable when on the go. An Air Contour back system keeps the weight close and comfortable whilst providing airflow between your back and your pack. The main body of the Alpkit pack has a single large compartment, within which is an elasticated pouch for hydration reservoir. The Edge 26 is a tough-feeling pack that should stand up to the rigours of use on a daily commute, on foot or on wheels.To use a hydration bladder with the Aquapac rucksack, you remove the back stiffener from its pouch in the back and slide the reservoir in. There was just enough padding in the shoulder harness and the venting did help keep down perspiration build up a little. Best uses: hill and mountain walking; longer-distance trail walking; lightweight winter walking; scrambling. The back doesn’t support higher weights as well as one with a metal frame but does keep weight of the pack down. The fabric of the Jack Wolfskin rucksack is tough-feeling diamond-pattern polyester, which is 100 per cent recycled.
