‘The Octane LR’s stand-out feature is a clever lumbar reservoir that keeps weight low down at hip level – and it works pretty well’
Outdoors Magic: Neat lumbar reservoir works well and sits comfortably, lots of pockets, neat adjustment pull system, enough capacity for lightweight outings plus quick access pockets.
Outdoors Tragic: Hydration tune end roams free, sweaty in the heat. Carful packing needed.
Outdoors Grabbit? We like the lumbar reservoir and bite-valve and overall the pack works well with the weight kept low. There’s enough storage too if you keep your kit light and it’s arguably a better all-rounder than higher-sitting ‘race vests’.
