An extremely tough yet lightweight endurance pack, designed to cope with every season.
Montane's Yarara 32 is a super lightweight backpack that's comfortable to carry and designed to cope with a tough day on the mountain.
It has a functional design that gives you a wealth of pockets (both internal and external), with easy access and adjustability that mean makes it a reliable choice for outdoor expeditions, whether you're trekking the Scottish mountains or the high Himalaya.
Shaped to suit the female form, it has a split shoulder strap construction and narrow body curve hip fins which add comfort and stability, while the ‘Comfort Back Pad’ uses channels that wick away both sweat and rainwater, whilst still letting the air flow.
The great combination of internal compression, one-handed compression straps, double tension waist harness and two top shoulder straps, let you hold your gear in place and close to your body, helping you to stay stable over uneven terrain.

I actually spent the full amount on this! But, I would do it again.
I’ve had this bag for around 2 years and initially bought it as an allrounder to put climbing gear in as well as a mini Europe trip.
It fits into the free air luggage restrictions (Ryan Air - check other airlines), is really light and perfect for my small frame.
At 5’2 most rucksacks fit awkwardly and uncomfortably down the back and are often way too long. This one was perfect and the straps really comfortable.
There are plenty of pockets including most usefully 2 on the front meaning you can reach keys, change or whatever small bits you need without having to take the bag off.
Only one small criticism and that is the waist clasp broke after my friend stepped on it. In my opinion, if its made for trekking, travel and so on, it should be tough enough to withstand being trodden on.
