Has anyone any recommendations for a day sack good for UK mountain biking?
I use bottles so don’t need it to have a bladder pocket.
I was thinking big enough for food for a day, water proofs, down jackets, spares first aid kit. Ideally close to water proof and with Some external pockets (? these could be mesh)
Son has a Vaude Path (older version), and I have an *ancient* Vaude Tour. Both are brilliant bags – comfy, stable, a few features but not too many. His has more – including a zip to double the size on big days. Mine is now 20 years old and is just starting to show its age some… Underrated IMO.
Youngest son has a Salomon Trail 10-15 running pack, again it is simple, light and stable, with similar expander zip to the Vaude. It is well made, but a bit too light and I expect it to not last as long.
Avoid the cheap Karrimors – I have one, and while it works, it says a lot that I keep choosing the Vaude…
