First Review of Colin Ibbotson's Tramplite Packs
Recently I was privileged to have a first look at a revolutionary new ultralight pack design from long distance backpacker Colin Ibbotson (who I have written about before - see Ultralight in the Cairngorms). Having had the design explained to me by Colin, examined the different styles and tried a model on day hikes and an overnight trip I've written a piece that is now on the TGO website here.
These packs really are different and look like being the most comfortable ultralight packs available.
The picture shows the Dyneema version, which is the one I have been testing.
