Fastpack LightWave


Lightwave’s Fastpack rucksacks are available in 30-litre, 40-litre and 50-litre models. They are comfortable, lightweight and highly water-resistant daysacks that are ideal for winter day trips and lightweight weekend hiking trips. They are exceptionally light – around 1.15 kg – and sturdy, being constructed from mid-weight fabrics.

The 40 and 50 litre models have aluminium stays in the back system which allow them to support loads of 9–12 kg comfortably, and the close-fitting design of the back panel ensures good carrying stability. The Fastpack 30 has a HDPE (high density polypropylene) panel to give some support , stiffness and protection to the moulded foam back panel.

All the seams on the main body and lid are either welded or taped, making the Fastpack quite weatherproof and ideal for use in wet or wintery climates. (For technical reasons the seams attaching the back panel cannot be sealed, but these are largely protected from the weather by the wearer’s own back.)

The Fastpack 40 & 50 also have ski-holders at the base of each side that, combined with the side-compression system, can be used to carry skis securely.
