Lightwave’s Fastpack rucksacks, available in 40-litre and 50-litre models, are comfortable, lightweight and highly water-resistant daysacks that are ideal for winter day trips and lightweight weekend hiking trips. They are exceptionally light – around 1.15 kg – and sturdy, being constructed from mid-weight fabrics. The aluminium stays in the back system allow the Fastpack to support loads of 9–12 kg comfortably, and the close-fitting design of the back panel ensures good carrying stability. All the seams on the main body and lid are either welded or taped, making the Fastpack virtually waterproof and ideal for use in wet or wintery climates. (For technical reasons the seams attaching the back panel cannot be sealed, but these are largely protected from the weather by the wearer’s own back.) Ski-holders at the base of each side can be combined with the side-compression system to carry skis securely.
