Paxis isn’t the first com­pany to try to make a back­pack more ac­ces­si­ble, but its so­lu­tion is re­fresh­ingly dif­fer­ent. The bot­tom third is a self-con­tained ‘Shut­tle Pod’ on a hinged arm, which swings around to face you for easy ac­cess. De­spite this and other frills, the Mt Pick­ett weighs a rea­son­able 2.5kg. Space is at a pre­mium in­side the 28 x 14 x 12.7cm pod though, and a heavy load causes it to swing wildly if you’re not care­ful. The up­per com­part­ment is an open space, so it’s not ideal for safely stash­ing ad­di­tional kit.
