golite peak rucksack

Bob at BPL will have some pre-release stock of the above. And of course, as I really need another rucksack I’ve ordered myself one up in the tastefully subtle shades of black and grease, in the long back length.

The Peak looks like a mini me version of the Jam 2 with a stated weight of 765g and 40l capacity for the large back length model. Given this spec I’m expecting that the rucksack will get used for overnight trips or two or three night trips in warmer weather. But that won’t stop me from trying to stuff all I need in it for a longer trip to the Lakes should it arrive before the end of the month.

I’ll post a first impression review once I’ve got my hands on it.

Good choice. Mine was ordered days ago. If you like it I bet you'll get a Jam 2 as well for those longer walks. Challenge for example.

I'm always impressed with their packs. I've not owned any, but I've got friends who swear by them.

PS: Breaking in my Exos 46. It sure holds more than you think it would, that's for sure.

I'll be sticking with the Exos for the stroll across Scotland at this point in the planning, so I doubt if a Jam 2 will ever get on the shopping list. At this point anyway.

arggg! another rucksack to try to not fall into temptation to buy! :)

I do like Golite rucksacks having got two of my own. Three would just be plain greedy!
