The Nebula 34 has been created to be a versatile everyday bag, whether you are commuting or hiking, with lots of pockets and features to keep you organised on the go. As the name suggests this is a 34L backpack and comes in a variety of attractive designs: Navy Blue, Black, Robust Red, Komodo Green and Armor Grey (the sample we received, which has a funky orange back in interior lining).
The Meridian 75 is a wonderfully large travel bag with a load of attributes that make those longer journeys as easy as possible. Starting with pure vanity, the Meridian 75 comes in 3 beautiful colours, Lagoon Blue, Metal Grey and Rainforest Green, all distinctive enough to stand out on the luggage carousel. The Meridian 75 comes in two sections, a large 59L main pack and 16L daypack that clips together in a neat package, there are thick flaps of material which hug the daypack in place, giving it more protection as well as providing a cleaner profile.
This is a rigorously tested bag, that has been used at least 3 times a week during the 6 months we have had it, it has travelled around London, been hiking in North Wales and Norway and recently went skiing in France. Apart from being a little dirty it still looks as good a new, there is no wear on the bottom from being dumped on the ground due to the tough nylon material, the stitching is still perfect and the padding in the back and straps remains full and supportive.
The Talon 33 is a versatile backpack designed specifically for mountain hiking and long days outdoors, but can be used for anything from the work commute to popping to the shops. It is available in four colours - Black, Ultramarine Blue, Spring Green and Martian Red - and features the new AirScape accordion foam back panel and a seamless lumbar-to-hipbelt body wrap to allow for as much air flow to the back as possible, whilst at the same time keeping the pack close to the body and spreading the weight evenly around the hips.
New on the scene is the Transporter 65 Duffle Bag from Osprey. Their bags have been designed to be tough and “adventure proof”; this expedition-style duffel bag is made from highly durable materials, is water-resistant and has a varied carrying system. Large enough to accommodate technical equipment, it is made from a super tough, TPU laminated 800D Nylon+ 0.2mm, which has excellent durability whilst keep the weight to a minimum.
The Stratos 50 is a hiking backpack that is packed with useful features and generous ventilation to make your outdoors adventure is as comfortable as possible. These features include Osprey's AntiGravity technology and a fully adjustable AirSpeed ventilated back system, which is a single-piece constructed back panel and hip belt with highly breathable suspended mesh.
