VAUDE AQUARIUS 6 + 3L

price: £90
weight: 690g

By far the heaviest on review, the Aquarius is designed for comfort on long-distances; its mesh back is effective at supporting its weight, even when full. Its six-litre capacity can be expanded by an additional three litres if needed, though it does come at the cost of an even heavier pack. Bluesign certified material earns this an eco-friendly commendation.

verdict
best for ethics

A chunky pack for long slogs in rough terrain; not for speed.
