Light, clean and super versatile - the ACT Trails now appear in a fresh, sleek look. The sporty no-frills all- rounders offer top Aircontact carrying comfort and many smart details (such as the fold away hip belt) that make them the right choice for hiking trips, via ferrata routes as well as urban outings.
I have owned many backpacks, but when it comes to day packs, this one beats them all - and by far! The fact that it doesn't have one of those 'arched backs' structure makes it so much easier to fill, and it does take a lot more content than my previous two 35litre day packs. I love the additional zip around the front flap that lets you access all of the content from the front. Also, I'm a fan of all those useful pockets; one on the belt for permanent access, one on each side (a meshed for bottles and a zipped one), 2 little pockets in the top flat, and there's the elasticated mesh at the front that's big enough for a climbing helmet. Even with the pockets full, compression straps ensure a compact pack.
The comfort is second to none - the hip belt gives the bag perfect stability even when trail running. Oh, and I'm a petite girl (the bag is meant for men but it fits me like a glove).
I've taken it climbing (enough space for a helmet and a rope + 1 ice axe loop and 2 elasticated loops), trail running and to the office (accommodates a 17' macbook pro and many books).
All in all, my new perfect pack - and my boyfriend's, who borrows mine although he's got 4 backpacks of his own!
