it’s been more than a month now, since I purchased the Lowe Alpine Aeon 27 backpack. Some may say I have too many backpacks (and, this may be true…) but I was keen on this purchase due to its low weight and I saw it as an ideal accessory for summer hiking when I may not need all of those extra thermal layers.
It’s been about a year since I purchased my current day-hiking backpack, the Osprey Manta AG 28 and, quite recently, I’ve been having thoughts about whether I might actually require something larger.
Somehow, I persuaded myself that 30lt was big enough, twelve-months ago and, in an effort to reaffirm my believe, I’ve been looking at ways to reduce and minimise the essential load I currently carry.
So, before driving off to Snowdonia, I purchased a SIGG Metal Box Plus S aluminium food container.
