New North Face rucksacks.

Simples - we have 3 new North face rucksacks.

Surge (pic right): A super tough, 33 litre rucksack with a a good number of different sized comparments including a dedicated laptop compartment, secondary compartment with organisation and a front side electronics compartment also with organisation.

There are other spaces too including a zippered pocket especially for your laptop power cord + transformer. It also has lovely stretchy side pockets, extremely tough looking zips and padded hip straps.

This bag really is the business - it's not cheap at €100 but it will last you a long time and is capable of everything from being a hill walking pack through to being a weekend travel bag and everyday work/college bag. It really has to be checked out to appreciate the quality of it.

Next up are the terra 35 and 45.

The 35 (pictured right) is an ideal large day bag or small overnighter. The finish is superb, with very comfortable shoulder straps and a great mesh/airflow type channel on the back panel to reduce "sweaty back" syndrome. As with all of the North Face bags, the finish quality is superb, with super strong materials being used and high quality zips.

The 45 has the same build quality and many of the same features of the 35 only it also has a long side zip entrance to the main compartment. Obviously this bag is suitable for multi-day adventures with it's 45 litre capacity.

And last, but by absolutely no means least comes the "Animas" (pic below).

This 12 litre, "do anything you like" pack is my personal favourite as this will carry enough for a day out hiking, cycling, climbing etc and remain very sleek indeed. It comes with a 3litre Source hydration system included and as with all of the packs above, the quality of this pack just has to be seen - Once again the stitching, zips, layout of compartments, stretchy side pockets and all the little details are bang on.

anyhooooooooo that's all for now as it's nearly home time.
