Montane Featherlite 23 Day Pack Review
The Montane Featherlite 23 Day Pack, from outdoor retailer Nevisport, is the perfect piece of outdoor equipment if you are looking for a pack that is incredibly light, fully breathable, waterproof and durable.
The Montane Featherlite 23 is a durably tough and extremely lightweight multi-activity day pack which can fully stuff away into its own lid pocket. The Comfort Air Back System features a removable foam pad that can be used as a bivvy mat when impromptu camping or in an emergency situation.
The RAPTO Featherlite fabric is abrasion and tear resistant. The fabric on this Montane rucksack also has an applied hard wearing water repellency treatment and the lining is also waterproof.
The shoulder straps are perforated and include CONTACT Air Mesh Plus on the upper and lower back hip fins and shoulder straps.
The Click And Go System on the elasticated chest strap is very easy to use and has excellent flexibility for adjustments and comfort. The waistband is quite generous and includes two zip pockets, one on either side of the belt.
There are two large perforated open side pockets that are really stretchy and easy to access when walking.
The Montane Featherlite 23 day pack also has a large zip pocket at the top and access to the inside is from a wide opening circular bucket style main zip. When you open the Montane rucksack there is no routing around trying to feel your way down the bottom of the bag, it is all there to clearly see.
Inside there is a zip to the back system and a secure zip bag for valuables. It is h2o hydration bladder compatible and there is a dual walking pole attachment point at the base of the pack.
This is one of those ‘once it is on you don’t even notice you are wearing’ type rucksacks. So unbelievably comfortable but with terrific stability and support. No aching back muscles after a day hike with this Montane rucksack!
