/ Help me decide on a pack
I'm trying to decide between the Lowe Alpine Airzone Pro 35:45 and the Montane Medusa 32.
Use will be mainly full day hikes with a bit of scrambling here and there.
Price difference is not really an issue. I really like the colour of the Medusa :-)But is the Airzone Pro a better all round pack?
What do you think?
If you are carrying it light the Medusa is a great pack, light but tough and seems much larger than the 32 litres suggests.
I personally like the Medusa for scrambling and as a day bag. I use it more than my larger pack and found it comfortable for climbing in. It doesn't move around. The back system isn't very technical, but it's not designed for heavy hauling, just make sure nothing too lumpy is sticking in your back.
Guess it will come down to fit though, as the backs aren't adjustable.
I've got the 26 and i'm delighted with it.
can't remember which one was working but it made it less than £60 delivered.
Having a Medusa seems a popular choice.
I've got a Medusa and I'm very happy with it, packing it full of rack and gear sometimes makes it look lumpy though. The buddy zip top pocket thing is good until your 'buddy' opens it without you knowing...
Brilliant, thanks a lot :-)
