The Ozone is a versatile pack that's comfortable for fast and light overnight use or just days out in the hills. The hardwearing fabrics and comfortable design are combined with lots of storage options to give you a great pack.
The Ozone is ideal for ultralight trekking, hikers and those looking for comfort and light weight design. The Ozone is made from Lightweight 200D Nylon ripstop PU and has a unique load stabilizing compression, compressing the load closer to the centre of gravity. It has ample storage to the front and sides in addition to a hip-belt storage area and on the go walking pole storage.
Vango's Ozone 30 Litre Rucksack is made from very durable but fairly light weight material, it'll take years of use before you ever see signs of serious wear. There are a lot of handy features on this pack that will help you organise your kit out on the trails. The compression strap system around the bag is a great way of packing in kit but more importantly is the fact that it helps stabilise your load and keep you balanced with a full pack. In a practical sense, you really notice it when climbing over stiles, walking on steeper sections and moving around a lot.
The back panel has an aluminium frame the holds the pack off your back allowing some air to circulate and keep you cool when you need it. There is plenty of padding to keep you comfortable on longer days, even when you're carrying a heavy load. The side and hipbelt pockets are really handy and great for keeping your smaller bits of gear handy and accessible.
