The Fast Hike 45 Rucksack from Berghaus packs a tremendous amount of features into its light-weight frame. The pack is adaptable with many removable components and the variety of storage options means you quickly access whatever you need.
Super light and easy to tailor to your trip, the Fast Hike 45 is ideally designed for traversing the Pennine Way or the Pacific Coast Trail. With five removable components and a weight of just 530g when stripped back, you can lighten the load when you need to, with detachable waist strap, back pad and alloy frame, among others.
The highly breathable honeycomb mesh helps to keep you cool, while soft back padding delivers fantastic comfort when the rucksack’s carefully packed. A specially designed pack chassis coupled with wider shoulder straps that mould to your body means you can wear the weight rather than carry it. As for staying refreshed, it’s packed with hydration carrying options that are critical when water is scarce. With plenty of adjustable pockets, handy storage and external attachment points, you’ll be all set for a fast and furious trip.
The Fast Hike 45 Rucksack from Berghaus is a light-weight but super versatile technical pack with a variety of storage options and ability to strip down the features when required. The 100 denier Nylon makes the pack really durable.
The main compartment is spacious and has roll top enclosure which I much prefer to a draw cord as its more secure and gives better protection from the elements. There is zipped pocket inside to keep valuables secure and safe. You have 5 stretchy mesh pockets on the front of the back. The largest central pocket has a closure strap which goes over the top of the bag. 2 small side pockets are most suited to water bottles. There is a thin compression strap to help keep items in these pockets. 2 large side pockets give extra storage options as well as walking pole attachments and daisy chains.
The mesh panel back is comfy and can be removed if you want to save weight. The removable hip belt has 2 pockets one mesh and one zipped pocket to store those items you want easy access to. The padded shoulder straps also have a mesh pocket each.

Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.
So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
