Why We Chose It: Comfortable, adaptable, eco-friendly
We’ve been pretty impressed with almost all the gear we’ve tested from Finnish brand Halti in recent months, which has included everything from hiking boots to trousers to waterproofs.
Most recently, they sent us their Inari 65 pack, and once again, we like it a lot. It is a versatile and roomy trekking backpack with a sturdy aluminium frame, ensuring good load-lugging capability. It also has a couple of unusual and well-designed additional features that add considerable versatility for multiple different adventure scenarios.
What Is The Inari 65 Backpack Best Suited To?
This would be a great backpack for humping on a long-distance trail anywhere in the UK, Europe or further afield. That includes some of the world’s greatest treks, say the Inca Trail or the Annapurna Circuit.
But it would also make a brilliant travel rucksack. For example, we’d have loved to have this pack back when we were teenagers and spent a summer backpacking around Europe. Why? Well, first up, it’s comfortable to carry, even when fully laden, thanks to a fully adjustable back system and harness. It’s got a roomy main compartment, a separate zipped lower compartment and loads of pockets, including a front stretch pocket to stash a jacket or your rain gear.
