‘Excellent, refined, ventilated walking daypack with an effective back system, myriad pockets and comprehensive features. The Zulu 30 is up there with the very best in its class’
Outdoors Magic: Comfortable, stable, cool, brilliantly specced, plenty of pockets, sleek looks, tough, big zip-openings access to main compartment. Sun-glasses holder…
Outdoors Tragic: Nothing much unless you’re into more minimalist packs.
Outdoors Grabbit? As top-spec ventilated packs go, the Zulu 30’s hard to fault. The excellent back system gives just the right mix of ventilation and excellent support with a small gap to minimise leverage. There are pockets everywhere, good access, general design and build quality are both decent and while it won’t completely eliminate sweaty back syndrome, it definitely does make an appreciable difference in our experience. Fabrics are tough, though we suspect the stretch mesh pockets won’t last as long as the rest of the pack – that’s common to most packs of this type though. A really impressive all-round walking, hiking and trekking pack.
