  • What is up Duroc here you first outdoors. Today i wanna do a quick little review a. Pretty sweet little daebak i like god it's gonna be the deuter a ct trail 30. That's right this little pack is quiet. Impressive actually i was kind of skeptical but i used it on a recent hike. And i was very impressed with it especially if it looks kind of small but. It held everything i needed it to hold. Which was surprising and it is very. Comfortable so I'm gonna go over a couple things with it and pack it out shows you how much it held for me and why. I think it's a good pack for the money alright let's take a good look at this thing first so pack is very light empty pack weighs. Out 2 pounds 10 ounces this is the acp. Trail 30 so it's a 30 liter pack i was a. Little skeptical about the hip belt you know there's no padding or anything like that now you gotta understand this is just add a pack so you can pack. It out really well but this really it did well and the padding here kind of. Leaves a space between your back so some. Air can flow through that and that seemed to work well it was a pretty hot day when we hiked up mount Trumbull. So i was very comfortable got some stuff i already used this pack once this is looking at the back the. Straps are adjustable here and then up. Top but you can't adjust the back like. Port or so that's pretty much you get. What you get flipping this over what i like about. This too is it's got the little rain. Rain fly that will cover back here. Always like that i think that's great in the packs no although i should try and. Put this all in the packs full up see what looks like they will do that to that's cool that stuff back into there. You've got a one strap to lock the top. Down here and you've got some extra. Space on the front here to store some. Things and you can also store some. Things well that's the side. Entrance there so that's kind of windy. And you've got that on one side what you. Also have is the ability to just open. The entire pack from the top like that. So that's kind of handy grab things out. Of there without having to go to the top and then there's also the top pocket. Which you can store some things to get your key holder there and there's also one more pockets isn't there yeah inside. The top there you can cram some stuff in there as well. We've also got a little bit of knowledge. Right here you know alpine emergency by. You know singled aircraft all those things that'll help you out if you get. And a pinch well it's tough this thing. Our real quick alright so what you're. Seeing here is the back fully loaded. Everything i like to carry on a day hike. And it seems to hold on then what i. Don't have i don't have stuff jammed in the top pockets or in this front pocket so those are still empty although I'm. Sure i could find something to put in their i like to pack a view so that's just or lots of stuff that's just how it. Rolls but we're loaded you can see how. Now that holds up. Show you how fitz. Here we have it's pretty good mmm. One thing i really like about this and i was kind of weird when i first put it on is like with the straps it belts I'm. Used to pulling back to tighten this one. They go pull front and it's beautiful it. Looks great I'm you can just type down like that and i just think it's so much easier to pull that away then this way that's brilliant. Actually i think so that's really cool also on the sternum strap it has this. Plastic thing that's clipped on and it. Moves up fairly simple so you can adjust. Sternum strap pretty easy. Looking at this now that could pop off. Just pop out of there it doesn't run. Through so that's gonna happen i mean. It's gonna happen this is gonna pop off. And i presume that you could pop it back on we'll see but a cool little feature. But i think that yeah i know that's. Gonna pop off sometime somewhere it'll grab on something i don't know interesting works well but well we'll. See won't we you already got a loop sewn. In here to hang something sunglasses a. Little camera case something like that's pretty cool okay there's there's. One side pocket here and i generally. Don't carry sticks on day hike just. Depends on what I'm getting into so this will fit in an al jean bottle. And you can run this through the loop at the nalgene top there to keep it from popping out but that works well and you. Can also use to hold your sticks or whatever looking at this is going. To fail in time everything fails but. That's i don't know like i said this is. A new pack I've only used it once I'm hard on things I've run through bushes. And dragged things across it i mean it's. Just we'll see but for the moment it. Works you can just that yeah i mean this. Is gonna pop off or rip out it will i. Now it just cuz it's happened. Everything every time i have things like this they're gonna fail not off the back. But eventually so bearing that in mind. You can still fit an al jean in there. And you could probably rig something up to tie it but that looks pretty secure in there but this thing your miles may. Very i suppose but it's handy and it'll. Work for the moment we will see in time. Heavy usage you know things are gonna fall apart there's another one over here. Also where you can hang something. Through and a nice axe or something i suppose something else but there's no pocket so yeah you know you got some. Little things sewn here you could attach things to so there're options it's cool i. Like what i like it you know i think it's a well-thought-out pack for the most part i think these things could be. A little sturdier and a little more. Heavy-duty but you know things like that. Will increase the cost of the pack so. Yeah we'll see where it takes it rights. You've also got some loops sewn in on. The bottom here and they'll be useful. For some things this is connected here. You'll take unhook that and that's how. You'll access. That's your side wait a minute do you. Notice that huh okay well there's a side pocket right there instead of an outside. Pockets a zipper pocket where you could stash something a map or something would go there wow just now I've seen all kinds of cool stuff so you don't clip these claps here. And this will get you into the top of. The back to get whatever you need out of their back down so now that this thing's. All full up let's try that rain fly. Again see how that holds up sticks out. Of here put these back on so i got a. Full up pack will this fly cover it now. Moment of truth alright so the fly is attached to the. Pack fly out and wind grabs it you'll. Never see it again let's see this. Actually well right look at that. Axe fully loaded and the rain cover just. Covered the entire pack and it covers it. Well that's cool love it and it's even. Got a little drain hole at the bottom like i said this is a this is a pretty thought-out pack a nicely thought out pack all right you've got your slot for. Your camel back hose and then it'll run. Down strap there go right through there. So there's your water system if you will. I don't really like using camelbaks. That's just my preference sometimes i do but a lot of times i don't I'll just stick with no jeans so what I've got in. The pack is I've actually got four. Nalgene bottles in their now one of them. Stuffed with things i may need so in. Theory i could hold a gallon of water just with the nalgene bottles in here and I'm. Gonna dig everything out and show you what i got in their so jackets rain. Jacket also got another now jean this is. Got a bunch of stuff in it. Whistle lighters blah blah blah and I've. Got 20 liter dry bags this just got all. Stuff like compass sunscreen food toilet. Paper all those essential things like that and i don't really carry this is a. Quick dry bag this is more for a canyoning so I've got stuff ready for a canyon I'm doing tomorrow we've got a lighter dry bag which I'll use this to cut down on weight but it's still it's still the same thing 20 litres it's not full of course but you know that'll work. Too and that's everything that was in. There and you've also got your slot of. Course for your camel back in here like that so there you have it all my stuff. That was in there so pack holds quiet. A bit everything you need for sweet long. Day hike and if you have to have or come. Into some inclement weather it's already. Geared like that I'm very impressed with this pack i like it i like it a lot and i think it'll last there's a couple weak. Points i think but you're gonna have that'll anything and if you were to make. Those things more heavy-duty like i said. It's just going to increase the price point of the pack and as far as the. Price point i think was it yeah this went for 130 dollars so. I think it is worth it. To be honest with you so there you have. It the door a ct trail 30 i use this pack. You can check out the video the hiking mount Trumbull video i use this pack to do that hike and it served me very well i think I'll get a lot of use. Out of this pack so as always appreciate. You watch stay safe out there if you haven't subscribed please subscribe, and we'll see you next time do you rock out.

  • We're taking a look at the leakey micro vario carbon dss anti-shock trekking. Poles these are an extremely collapsible. Ultra lightweight trekking poles that. Are perfect for your owns counting backpackers travelers who are looking. For trekking poles that really collapse down into luggage and people who are looking for a lightweight pair of trekking poles that don't skimp on any. Features so these are fully featured. Poles the first thing i want to point out here about these poles is they actually do have a shock absorber at the. Bottom so the dss in the naming here it. Stands for a dynamic suspension system lake ease put a lot of research and. Development into this feature and there's an elastomer here at the bottom. Close to the point of impact of the. Ground it's lightweight and it's extremely durable so it's not going to. Wear out over a long period of time and the basic function of this shock absorber is really to take out that vibration that you feel through the trekking pole when you're hiking for long days long miles on the trail. Sometimes that vibration that comes. Through the pole can irritate your wrists your elbows your shoulders and. This just dampens that vibration the. Other standout feature of these poles is that they are extremely collapsible and the way leakey achieves this is by. Having a very durable cord that runs through all shaft sections of these. Poles and they go together almost like. Tent poles they remind me of the way tent poles are designed and then all you do in order to set them up is stretch. That out and it tensions the cord that's. Inside and makes this very durable there's a push button here that comes. Out once you've got everything set up you can hear that positive click and then you've got an extremely durable pole here so really great design now. This is a carbon fiber so each of these. Shaft sections are extremely lightweight perfect for those ounce can in backpackers and this does have an. Adjustable range these will adjust from. A hundred and ten centimeters all the. Way up to a hundred and thirty centimeters so fully-featured trekking. Pole here on those days where you may be. Climbing or descending and you really want to make quick adjustments it's perfect you can also really just dial in the exact length of trekking poles that you. Need and this is lake ease speed lock. It's an external lock it couldn't be any easier to adjust basically you just. Flick it open with your thumb adjust it. To the proper height and then flick it closed and you've got a really secure lock while we're up here on the grips. You do have an ergonomic leakey air gan. Grip there are thermo grips so you've got really comfortable foam here and the. Thing i really like about foam grips is they work well in all temperatures and in all seasons so in the summer if your. Hands begin to perspire this really. Wicks away sweat and you can keep a. Secure grip there with your hands but. Also in the winter this material works well with gloves you have an extended. Grip here so if you need to grip the pole at a different spot that's really easy and then you have this egg-shaped top that's really great for palming the. Top of the pole so a nice wide top there. And then obviously you've gotten adjustable straps they're really comfortable they're lightweight and you can adjust them to just take the strain. Off of your wrists as you're hiking moving down the pole you have leki's carbide flex tips it's a very durable. Tip here and you have that carbide end. So that's going to last a really long time and the thing that's great about these tips is that they do flex a little. Bit if they're put under a lot of pressure so let's say they're caught between two rocks it's going to take the. Force away from the actual shaft sections of the poles and this tip is going to take most of that force so it's going to protect the poll it's going to last a long time and they are replaceable you do get just a narrow. Diameter basket here there is a thread. On the tips so you can take these. Baskets off and put a snow basket on. There if you need to so with all the features here you get a very lightweight set of poles with that carbon construction they're extremely collapsible so they're. Great for travel they're great for those ounce counting backpackers who don't want to skimp on any features you've got all the adjustability you need in a very comfortable grip they're the leakey micro vario carbon dss anti-shock. Trekking poles. You.

  • Hey there and welcome back to peace. Couch now as many of you aware I'm about to embark on the marathon disorder which. Is something I've been concentrating really heavily on for the last year or. More as well as doing lots of training. I've been doing so much research on the. Amount of kit going to take and I've been testing a lot of stuff so over the. Next couple of weeks before i depart i thought I'd share some of those learnings with you and where better. Place to start than the backpack I'm going to take which i have decided on. The ultimate direction fast pack 20 now. This is super heavy at the moment because it's its fully weighted so I've been training with but i just can empty it out and show you why i like it so much so here it is and it's naked form. And this is what i like most about it is that it's so minimal it's basically an expanded running desk it weighs next to nothing and this is kind of one of the big deciding factors for me because obviously I'm trying to cut down as much weight as possible 510. Grams okay now a great thing to compare. This to is the official war bag which a. Lot of people will be using mdf and in. Contrast it's got all kinds of stuff hanging off it and most importantly the. Weight of it 900 grams that's a pretty. Huge difference so this is nearly half the weight of the wire back which is an incredible savings but I've also decided. To make an even bigger saving on it there's not much you can cut off it like the like a wild bag you can get the diseases to that and kind of trim off some weight but here it's so minimal anyway but certainly the most notable. Savings you can make is in the back there's a bit of padding that you can remove, and they say that this can be. Used to sit on or even to you know used. To cushion your hips when you're lying down i found it pretty useless. I've actually having removed this form. The back I've actually found the pack more come — boo and with it out so condition this. That brings the weight of the pack down to give time a gram so i say 10 grams. Right there so although this fast pack is nearly half the weight of the wire bag actually fits way more in it and it's down as a 20 litres bag but i think. You could probably push that out quite a lot partly because of the nature of this main compartment and how it seals its kind of like a dry bag has a velcro fastening that then rolls and then clips. In at the sides now i probably got about. 20 litres in there now but you can. Basically just not roll it down as much and sitting maybe another five litres. Into that main compartment it's not only that you've also got this fat mesh here. Which you can fit loads in that really stretches out and it's a firm mesh as well so it's going to hold things firmly in place i don't tend to put a massive amount in there because i like to keep my weight closer to my back but it's actually really good for holding waterproof or extra base layers that you. Might be using during the day stuff that down there and it holds it in their lovely and secure on top of those two main compartments we've got these mesh pockets on the side which also hold a lot of stuff very stretchy and pretty. Secure I'll generally use those side pockets for stuffing food and stuffing rubbish because even though I've got terrible flexibility i can reach into those pockets quite nicely so coming onto the front, and we've got two really great water pouches here it really surprises me how many ultra bags don't. Seem to have big enough pouches built in. For hard water bottles and maybe because they want to offer flexibility so that people can attach themselves but as you think this is a great weight saving thing to be able to build them into the bag that ultimates are it shouldn't have done so as you can see — water pool. Tools fit there really nicely there's also the option on this right-hand one if you don't want to. Carry two water bottles this zips back up again and there's actually a really nice secure pocket that you could maybe put bars you could put all kinds of stuff down in there it's actually a really brilliant phone holder you can put your phone down into their sip it back up and that's super secure. But i actually find that's one of the major downsides of its bad for me is that I'm going to be running around with two bottles most of the time and there's nowhere for me to put my phone now I'm not expecting to be on the phone the whole time but it'd be really good to have access to music and stuff like that if i do want to listen to music currently there's nowhere else. On the front of the bag for me to put it. There's this outside stretchy pocket just outside where the water bottle is but actually getting your phone into it. It's pretty much a no-go really the best. Place for you to put your phone is there's a smaller zip pocket on the side of the bag then it can go in nice and. Securely there's also one of these clip leaves to put your keys onto you know I've ever used one of these so the annoying thing about it is that it's going to be too far away for you to reach when you've got your bag on so coming back to the front you've also got two smaller pouches below the water bottles so if i just take these out so you can get a better look so on the left. Hand side we've got a zip and on the. Right-hand side we've got a velcro strap these are actually bigger than they look quite often i use them to dump keys and just have stuff that i want readily available, but they're actually stretch out so hold a couple of bars maybe or you know something slightly more sizable approach they just not that phone but you can see i can fit two full clif bars. Into each one of these pockets obviously. One of the most important things about the bag is how comfortable it is and i get on really well with this and i think. That could partly be because of the nature of these shoulder straps it's actually one bit of fabric runs straight. From the base of the bag over the. Shoulders and down the front you can see it completely wraps around which makes it really comfortable all the way around and especially now I've taking. That back bit of padding out it just molds into your body really nicely so one thing that it's most commonly criticized for is that it has two chest straps but no waist strap and a lot of people will say that that creates a bit too much side-to-side bouncing when they're running i can definitely see that point but i don't really experience it too badly myself and i think that's partly because i found a configuration that really works for me on the front here i tend to pack. A lot of the weight in the bag place for my body to avoid bouncing if i do experience any bouncing i tend to try and adjust my running to be a little normal glider which i guess i see is a win-win situation i kind of want to be a little bit more glide ii so the chest straps themselves are actually really nicely adjustable they're set into these sliders here which you can move them up and down so i found best. For security for me is to have one right. At the top and then slide the bottom one right down to the bottom and that kind. Of clips me in nicely either side of the rib cage by far my biggest issue with this bag is full of my decision to take polls to the mds oh now handily enough. There's actually some really nice. Elastic straps on the back that hold them nicely in place you can put them down here there's a clippable elastic. Bungee that you can wrap them around and have them nice and secure on the back of. The pack like that but i know having. Poles on the back of the bag i will never use them so really i need to have. Then on the front straps but unfortunately on the front straps there's nothing there that's made to hold the poles so I've had to try and budge something to make it work for me now unfortunately i haven't made life easy for my selves and I've got poles that fold into four sections which means. That both the handle and the pointer at the bottom which means that when it's. Going down this way there's nothing really to hold on to the top of the pole so my first idea was to put a hook at. That i tied on to one of these things here and i took this string on the top. And then i tied it to the side that worked it was actually quite comfortable. But it was just so fiddly I'm hooking this and hooking it back on again i probably was never going to use my poles because it was too fiddly so then. I tried other things i tried to pass them on to the front which is a terrible idea don't try that it was awful and i also tried to fasten it down here somewhere which again didn't work so my final winning solution simply uses two pieces of elastic one of which just ties. Straight around the strap and around the water bottle here and one which fixes on. To the bottom buckle over here and that one has a sliding clip on it so all we. Do is we take the end of the poles and put it through the bottom bit of elastic we tie that site then put the end over the spike which. Then holds that in position and stops it falling down then the top you just feed. Through that top bit of elastic which. Holds it nice and securely in place so that's nicely out the way and more. Importantly it's a really light solution and i know it's going to be simple enough for me to deploy and actually use the poles when i need to use them so that is the ultimate direction fast pack 20 is a massive winner for me really recommend it if you are doing a multi-day ultra or if you just do a lot of running weekend so check it out.
