/ Approx 20 litre Running Pack
Can anyone reccommend something that fits the bill (<£50 ideally)?
I've looked at this http://www.lowealpine.com/eng/prod_app_det.php?catid=13&itemid=348&type= but thought I'd see what peopel think first.
I'd get something that's designed for running.
I've not used the OMM 20 litre pack but it's very popular in mountain marathons. I regularly ran 5 miles with the 25 litre pack carrying clothes and laptop.
I've got the 20 litre OMM one that I use for mountain marathons and running in and out of work, it is great but because of it's light weight nature you need to fill it for it to carry well; I often find muself putting an old towel in as well as my work stuff just to fill out the space. Also ensure that phones / wallets / keys etc are in a small bag inside it as the zips can come undone, (this has happened once to me,) so you don't want stuff spilling out. (I think I've countered this by pulling one zip tag up, over and down the pack rather than meeting both zips at the top, if this makes any sense!)
It is looking a bit battered of late, though it has had a couple of years of use. When I come to replace it, I'm going to hunt down one of Montane's new bags and see what they're like in the flesh.
Does anyone know any stockists in Leeds?
I have an Osprey Talon 22 for sale that could be what you are after!
Have only used it a few times and is as new. I used it for initial training for an endurance race then upgraded to the 33 litre version due to extra kit needed.
It is a great piece of kit, yours posted for £40. Back length is m/l, same colour as link below, sort of purpleish!
