Osprey Fairview Trek 70 and Farpoint Trek 75
Natalie Berry and Chris Prescott check out these two large capacity packs from Osprey, which combine the travel convenience of a duffel with the carrying comfort of a trekking pack.
Tough, practical and lightweight, the new Berghaus Expedition Mules are built to transport the kit that matters to wherever it needs to go in the world. Available in three sizes – 100L (1.41kg), 60L (1.16kg) and 40L (990g) – the Mules combine extremely durable weather resistant ripstop fabric with useful carrying, storage and adjustment options, ideal for travel and adventure anywhere.
The Expedition Mule 100 (£90) and 60 (£70) are ideal for long trips that demand a holdall that will last the course, but which is also very lightweight. There is plenty of room for kit in each main compartment and other features include an internal zipped pocket, side compression straps and detachable shoulder straps which allow the Mule to be used as a rucksack. The Expedition Mule 40 (£60) also includes the handy internal zipped pocked and can be carried as a rucksack. Helpfully, it is the right size for hand luggage on a flight, while being tough enough to deal with the challenge of spending time with the rest of the baggage in an aircraft hold if necessary.
Even the most frequent travellers will return home at some point and once they have been emptied, the Berghaus Expedition Mules reveal one additional very useful feature. Each holdall packs away into its own zipped pocket for really compact storage. The Berghaus Expedition Mules are available now from www.berghaus.com and selected specialist outdoor retailers.
