MONTANE VIA JAWS 10

price: £110
weight: 289g

This is Batman’s hydration pack, both in colour and construction. The light pack sits comfortably in the upper middle back and boasts a large capacity – along with many, many pockets for storage. The Via Jaws 10 has a good selection of chest-strap height options, too, and its chunky Velcro waist belt moves with you as you breathe.

verdict

Good fit and appealing design, let down by lots of buckles.
