The Kulu is a perfect pack for backpacking. Loads of really clever designs features that make life easier when travelling without losing the ease and comfort Lowe Alpine offer. You should not be setting off on your travels with anything else.
|The Kulu is the pack every backpacker has been waiting for. All the kudos of a backpack combined with a set of travel specific features to ease the stress of transit. Our new, patented Travel FlipBelt technology allows the user to stash the hipbelt during travel. Combined with the raincover / travel cover the pack can be converted into a standard piece of haul luggage. The Kulu is the perfect example of what Lowe Alpine does best, creating genuine innovations that make your life easier.|
Lowe Alpine's Kulu 55:65 Litre Rucksack is specifically designed for backpackers. This is the smartest pack I have ever seen and know it would have made my backpacking trips a lot easier. There are a number of great features that set this pack aside from the rest.
First and foremost is the travel flipbelt. This comfortable hipbelt can be flipped when you need to catch a flight, taxi, bus, moped, tuc-tuc or whatever, so that it is stowed out of the way. You will often find damage to your packs when travelling around the world due to the way other people handle them. The stowed hipbelt combined with the raincover that doubles up as a travel cover ensure your pack will be much safer in transit. There are solid, padded handles on either side to grab the pack by so other straps and belts are grabbed and damaged.
The pack has two really generous hip belt pockets, two stretch mesh pockets on the side, a lid with a large pocket on top and a secure zip pocket underneath with SOS instructions on it. The main pack has two zip entries and the top has two drawcords to secure your kit. There is a stitched pocket and clip inside to support a water bladder set up which is always useful when walking with your pack.
The Kulu has a fully adjustable back length and the AirMesh design keeps you cool with ventilation when the pack is on and you're exploring somewhere new and exotic. The Kulu ND is specifically designed for travellers with shorter back lengths compared to the Kulu version.

For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.
So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.
Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options.

To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. 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.
