You’ve taken the plunge and booked that airfare. Now you need a bag to match your plans for the epic. If we listed all the features, you may not have time to actually get out there. So here’s the pocket guide version: padded, adjustable shoulder straps, chest strap and padded waist strap (that’s even got a pocket for a muesli bar or your phone), plus padded EVA back panel to ensure long-trek comfort. Waterproof front pocket zip, two front sleeves for maps, side mesh pocket for drink bottle, internal key loop. Top pocket for quick access, expansion gusset to blow things out to generous proportions. A removable, scrunchable bag is a clever shape shifter: laundry bag, tote bag or a rain cover for the whole bag. Or wrap it over the main bag, tuck in the straps and you’re ready for checked luggage. And it’s secure: access the main section through the back, while top access is for quick-grab essentials. So now you’re done reading, get packing and adventuring.
