Small and curved, this backpack is ideal for hiking and short trips, but it won’t take a laptop

Our favourite daypack this week is this 20-litre model from Berghaus, which takes a lot from the British brand’s heritage of designing gear for mountain climbers.
Handy in humidity
Strong, well made straps feature EVABreathe matrix foam and are really comfy, while the entire back system is separated from the main daypack by a good few inches – perfect for travel in humid regions.
A whole kilo
It could be a bit lighter. It’s actually quite heavy at just over a kilo when empty, but there’s a good reason for that; its Freeflow system is one of the few worthy of its name.
If you’re after something similar, but even smaller – perhaps for cycling – try the Berghaus Limpet 10+.
