Osprey Tempest 20 – Editor’s Choice

 

 

 

£90 www.ospreyeurope.com

A classic pack that has been honed over the years, the Tempest 20 is a women’s specific multisport sack for summer days in mixed weather. It’s just big enough to take lightweight waterproofs, some safety kit and two litres of water. There are lots of features, which sometimes seem a little unnecessary, but I do like the mesh pocket on the shoulder strap, the hip pockets, and even the bike helmet carry system has seen some use. For me the winning aspect of this pack is the comfort of the back system. It sits snug against my body, perfect for freedom of movement, and yet the mesh covered Airscape foam back panel wicks moisture brilliantly. The back length is adjustable, with a simple hook and loop panel, to ensure the perfect fit. Even when full, wearing it feels as effortless as putting on a favourite jacket. Weight 0.74kg.

VERDICT: A near-perfect do-anything summer daypack. 

BEST FOR: Biking, hiking, you name it!
