In reply to UKC Gear: i'm trying to see how these differ from the Alpkit bags, apart from they are more expensive and the alpkit ones are proven to be great?
In reply to mr rob:

If you mean these - http://www.alpkit.com/shop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16366&category_id=251 then they are actually slightly more expensive.

Both look like good products to me but very different. The Exped one looks lighter and more ergonomic whereas the Alpkit one looks to be slightly tougher.

Ive got an Aplkit Gourdon and one of these Exped bags. The Exped is much lighter and can be rolled away very small. The Alpkit I use on my mountain bike as its just a bit heavy (bombproof though). I highly recommend both of these but all depends on what you need the bag for!

In reply to UKC Gear: ahh ok they are lighter, guessing they are the same material as their normal roll top sacks?

I did mean the Gordan and not the dry dock. Both are great though as is everything i have ever owed from alpkit (i did get the chop sticks for christmas and cant quite see the point though!)

Yes they are the same as the roll top packs, though it does have a slightly padded/thicker back section to it.
Yeah i'm an Alpkit fan aswell. Great kit and great prices.
