hi can anyone recomend a good backpack to wear long distace trail running hope to do 40 miles.thanks
Pete Bland (who have a link on here) usually have some good dealsInov-8 is another manufacturer to look at
Or, instead of using the 'Ask Jeeves' site, simply 'ask Dora'.............https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KqXFhRxybE
check out the Raidlight Olmo 5 pack - 4th item down on this page http://www.likeys.com/acatalog/Radilight2.html
holds 2 bottles
Osprey, North Face, Nathan, Salomon, Inov8, UltrAspire all do backpacks/waistpacks with long runs in mind. Just depends what fits you on whether you'll like them or not. Problem is there aren't many shops that stock a big range so can be hard trying them on for fit! I've bought a few blind, liked some, disliked others, returned for refund or resold on eBay.
Think it's worth getting the female specific ones as with the men's ones the shoulder straps are often too widely spaced. You also have the choice of a bladder or bottles and that's just down to personal preference...
Look at www.ultramarathonrunningstore.com to compare them against each other and see some brands you might not have heard of before.
I should also have said the the Raidlight Olmo also comes in a ladies version - talk to Martin or Sue at Likeys and they will help
thanks for the advice going to try out a few recommended before i buy.cheers....
I use Inov8 rucksacks; they come in different sizes and have a drink bladder that you fit into the bottom of the rucksack. They work well for me.
