Heading out on shorter walks and the fact that the weather could be ‘changeable’ I found the rigmarole of fidgeting with a rucksack cover somewhat a pain! Especially when carrying items you need quick access to or repeated access.
Being on my mountain bike lately, I was also looking for a pack that was waterproof and able to cope with back spray from rear wheel and easy to clean…..hello Cloudburst!
A lightweight pack with hip strap, sternum strap and easy access/closure ( roll top ), not forgetting external webbing that can be used to adjust volume and hold a jacket or cycle helmet for example.
The best thig is the air can be trapped inside the bag giving it a full shape which also gives padding.
Cleaning…..Get it home after a day on the trails and hose it down, job done.
I bought this item from Argyll Outdoors who have a shop on Ferry Brae. Great service and prices to.
