mountain designs :: odyssey pack
This pack from Mountain Designs was the perfect hybrid luggage to see me through weeks of semi-active travel through europe. Aside from the usual technical details, the slightly wider and shorter than usual size of this pack made it very comfortable for carrying my gear up and down stairs, on buses, ferries, trains and trams. Access to the contents was also fantastic, allowing me to keep everything neat, and soiled items like shoes easily separate. The buckles let you compress size, but also come in handy for strapping gear outside your pack - bedrolls, tents. Available in 65 or 75 litre, detachable day pack, lockable zips, hideaway straps, rain cover, Duratech lite fabric, lightweight. Highly recommended.
