A incredibly lightweight and tough pack for any mountaineering pursuit.

The Montane Medusa 32 combines strong and lightweight fabrics with a 'Comfort Back Pad', making it ideal for mountaineering trips where weight and comfort is critical.

The back pad is designed to provide extra ventilation, with built-in channels to wick sweat and rainwater away from your back to help keep you cool and dry. This is covered with Montane's  CONTACT Mesh, which is soft to touch and waterproof shell friendly, so won't cause wear to your technical jacket. The straps and hip belt are also mesh covered, and have top straps to pull the pack weight closer to your body, ensuring precise and comfortable weight distribution.

The body of the pack is made from Montane's Raptor TL fabric, a tough, lightweight nylon with a water repellent finish. The base of the pack is made of the even tougher Raptor UTL,  giving it extra resistance to wear and tear.

On the outside of the pack, there are numerous attachment points, including 'Dual Tool' trekking pole and ice axe loops, which can be reversed to allow 'Alpine safe' stowage of your ice axe. There is also a small stash pocket on the hip, side stretch pockets for water bottles and a zipped 'buddy pocket' on the top, providing easy access to essential items.

Inside, the main cavity of the pack has a large amount of space for your gear, with a wide mouth opening for easy access, and a quick release cord lock. The front pull strap and side compression straps allow the bag to be tightly packed down when not completely full.

Good sized general purpose rucksack, 26 March 2016
By SRB (Penrith)
Have now owned one since last autumn, and can say that I have never found a fault with its fitting. But I was very thorough in trying out a large number of medium sized rucksacks before settling on this one as the best fitting for my body frame. The extremely helpful staff member at my local store also put some weighted bags in it so that I could get a good feel of what it would be like fully loaded. I like the single large bag design, with only two small zipped pockets in the lid and no extra side pockets. This allows everything to be packed into a large sized dry bag inside of the rucksack plus a small one in the lid pocket and so effectively makes it all rainproof. A recommended buy if you are looking for a medium sized rucksack say for a couple of days away. Just remember to try it on for fit first.

Good alrounder, 17 November 2015
By lilginge97 (Warrington)
Firstly, unlike the author of a previous review, I made sure the Medusa fitted me before buying so I cannot complain about the support as it is excellent. Nor can I find much to complain about with the rest of the bag as it is a cleverly designed, well made and robust all round bag. This is now my go to bag for most day hikes, climbing days and even super light over night trips. The only thing I think is an issue is the lack of ventilation for the back. However, having said that when mine eventually comes to the end of its life it'll be replaced with another exactly the same.

Awful, 13 September 2015
By Sbc
Every feature and the quality of the rucksack is great. The thing that lets it down is the lack of support in the back panel. Unless it is packed with the softest clothes, the back panel collpases inward and creates a terrible shape. This means it is useless for climbing gear and ropes! I have carried everything but a recent mountaineering trip to the alps has just confirmed how bad the back is.

Great lightweight pack, 18 December 2014
By Jake (Leeds)
I've used this bag for pretty much everything from cycling, climbing, winter mountaineering and as an everyday pack for about two years and its performed like a champ. There is a place for everything, the buddy pocket and the ice axe attachment points are genius, the material used is lightweight but is surprisingly tough. When a buckle finally broke, I just emailed Montane and they sent me a replacement straight out.
