Sustainable & Environmentally Friendly
In 2021 we are more conscious than ever about the environment and how we can make our activities more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
By buying a backpack that is sustainably sourced and more durable you are minimising your carbon footprint and impact on our planets resources. It’s very common for inexperienced hikers to opt for the cheapest backpack that looks great but is imported from the far east and will only last a year.
Hiking Equipment Built To Last
Consumerism encourages brands to create hiking equipment with a short lifespan and cheap price tag, then encourage them to buy the latest model next year. The only way to reverse the negative impact we have on the planet is to reduce rapid consumption. Buying hiking equipment, whether it be backpacks, clothing or other products that are rugged & tough, designed to last a lifetime. Negating the requirement to buy another one anytime soon. It’ll also save you money in the long run with durable and rugged bag that you won’t need to replace.
Rugged & Tough
We reviewed a whole range of backpacks to see if they stood up to their claims of being able to survive some of the toughest use and if they were rugged enough to stand up the drops and bashes that exploring and modern day life can bring. The finalists are designed to stand the extremes wherever you go on the hiking trails and protect you and your equipment stored within.
