PACKS TO TAKE YOU FROM CITY TO SUMMIT


You weren’t made to sit still. When you take the 9-5 in your stride and escape to the outdoors in your precious free time, you need gear that will keep up. Your pack should see you from the streets to the hills and back again – and that’s where this lot come in.

Lowe Alpine Aeon

Sleek and feature-packed, the Aeon is built to fit your life seamlessly. Mountain-ready with tech features like pole attachments and hydration compatibility, it’s also got an AirContour back system and shoulder and hip belt for maximum comfort around the city. The 27L size can hold a laptop and water bottle as easily as a waterproof shell and climbing gear. 

Osprey Talon/Tempest

The Talon and Tempest packs are built to move with your body. The contoured back system moulds to your back, helping to stabilise your load during fast climbs (or the dreaded run for the train), while air chimneys stop you from overheating. The spacious front pocket securely stores anything from your waterproof to your tablet.

Patagonia Black Hole

A super-durable pack prepared for miles of rough handling, from the mountains to public transport. Its lightweight ripstop fabric is seriously tough and weatherproof, while the back system is engineered for comfort and moisture reduction for all-day wear. Small pockets let you easily access keys or sunglasses, while the bucket opening gives the classic top load an overhaul.

Osprey Mutant

A technical pack that’s sleek enough for the city? Yes please. The Mutant has all the features you’d expect for year-round adventuring – including a snow-shedding back panel – and commute-ready additions like ventilated shoulders and a low-profile harness. In short, you’ll never head outside without it.

Patagonia Classic Arbor

Commuting through town, crossing time zones or escaping down the trail – the Arbor is ready for anything. It features a large main compartment, durable water repellent (DWR) finish and a clever laptop sleeve which doubles as a hydration reservoir for when you swap commuting for conquering summits. It’s got serious eco credentials too, being crafted from all-recycled materials, and the heritage design ensures undeniable style.
