We tested the Salomon Trail 20 - a good crossover pack that will serve hikers and trail runners equally well

Overall Score
Light and simple
Quite expensive

One of the smallest and lightest (430g) of the packs we tested, the Trail 20 is just big enough for less demanding full day hikes as well as being well suited to trail running and even urban commutes.

It's worth noting, however, that despite the '20' in the name the actual capacity of the pack is 16-litres. That said there are two mesh side pockets and a trash pocket and zipped pocket on the hip belt for additional storage.

The 3D airmesh shoulder strap and adjustable belt and sternum strap allow for a comfortable, even snug fit, although there's relatively little in the way of venting if you're taking part in more vigorous activities, as the back panel sits pretty much directly on your back.

We liked the stretch fabric on the hip belt which allows it to follow the contours of your body and give a stable carry.

The main compartment is divided up to allow organisation of your kit in a mesh stash pocket and a hydration sleeve, with the option of routing your drinking tube along either shoulder strap.

The lightweight material used in the Trail 20 means you'll probably need to use the two side compression straps to hold the contents securely in place, particularly if you're running. But if you want a lightweight, good looking and versatile pack it's taking a look at despite the relatively high price tag.
