OSPREY DURO 6

price: £70
weight: 380g

The Duro 6’s plain design belies its performance. It was among the most comfortable packs whilst on the move, largely due to the dual clasp at the chest, which works a bit like a zip but without the accompanying tightness. Add in the ability to drink on the go from a chest-mounted bottle and you’ve got yourself a pack that ticks all the boxes.

best in test

You barely notice it’s there until you need a drink – perfect.
