Osprey Rolling Transporter 40
If you're after wheeled luggage with the knock-about toughness and practicality of a duffel bag, then this a great option, says Dan Bailey. But it's not an off-roader.
The FAST ALPINE pack – for half a decade the go-to pack for the discerning climber and mountaineer interested in maximum efficiency and robust, intuitive design – has been updated for this spring/summer.
Drawing upon extensive testing and feedback with Montane athletes and leading British mountain guides, the Fast Alpine 40's design has been improved to enhance functionality. RRP £140.
New updates include:
Further harder to see tweaks have been made to enhance the pack's inherent materiality, such as a 420 denier main fabric and mitt-friendly buckles, compliment other more directly useable features. Our 'Further. Faster.' ethos is apparent in small touches such as the Click and Go chest harness - a simple and quick feature originally used on our series of running packs.
This cumulation of innovation, high-performance design and desire for no-frills efficiency allows for a simple, intuitive and efficient pack that is designed for easy use in the most extreme environments, yet equally at home at lower altitudes.
