I’ve been yomp­ing about with the £90 Helium for the past three months and I love it. It’s un­usual for a lower-ca­pac­ity pack to have a lid rather than a zip, but it’s no real bother and the lid holds a sim­ply mas­sive amount of stuff: com­pass, whis­tle, first aid kit, pen-knife and dry-bags. The AirCom­fort Flexlite back-sys­tem cir­cu­lates air beau­ti­fully. There are cheaper op­tions even within Deuter’s own range, like the £75 AC Lite, but the Helium holds a bit more in the lid and the back- sys­tem uses less pad­ding, so it’s airier on the go.
