Hi all,

Last month I bit the bullet and bought a Kriega Trail 9 ("T9") backpack. https://kriega.com/riderpacks/trail9.

As I am sure that you know, Kriega kit is both stupidly expensive and absolutely superb. The T9 ticks both of these boxes.

Really designed for trail riders, it has a compartment designed to hold a "water bottle" (5 litre compartment designed to hold up to a 44.5 litre "water bottle") and a separatre 4 lite compartment, intended for "bits and bobs".

Then there is an extra "neoprene" hexagonal web expansion pocket that you can just stuff things into, giving a little more storage.

In practice (for me) it is simply a really good little backpack, perfect for carrying my phone / glasses / cheque book / spare contact lenses etc etc, and - if necessary, sticking in a bottle of water (not the sort of "camelback" system that it was designed for - just a simple bottle of water.)

Now, it is stupidly expensive, but - my word - it fits so well (a four or six point harness system does not give much scope for it to move at any speed), is as waterproof as you would expect for Kriega and, best of all, you can actually connect the Kriega US 10 expansion pack to it: https://kriega.com/sports/touring/us-20-drypack19a to give a 19 litre carrying capacity.

Dave

Great kit. I’ve used a kreiga 35litre daysack for years - literally just replaced it after at least ten years of daily use. The new one has improved a lot but still isn't waterproof but that’s not an issue as I use a liner. Really comfy with the chest fastening system which keeps it nice and snug.

I’ve kept the old one as a ‘spare’ :D

Kreiga are up near Chester, and the bloke who runs the company lives very close to me. I'm in discussion with them about creating the ideal ski tour rucksack. It's got to able to carry skis if you need to rope up and climb, have an ice axe carry that's convenient and somewhere for crampons, ski skins and harscheisen. + food, fuel and bivvy. This will all go into their 20L sac, and it's makes for a comfy carry. The only drawback is that the sac is over engineered and very heavy for it's size. A visit to their warehouse, often results in a very hefty discount too lOl
