Osprey Eja 38

The Eja is an extremely lightweight yet eminently comfortable and capable pack for long days out and minimalist travel. Eja is one of the lightest and most supportive packs available from Osprey... or pretty much anyone! Weighing just 1.12kg, you're carrying less fabric and more gear, allowing more kit to be added when dealing with tight luggage allowances. Just to put it into perspective how light this pack is, it's around a third the weight of the original multi-day packs of this size, or about the same weight as a pineapple.

Although super lightweight and minimalist, the Eja doesn't lack features or comfort and features one of the most comfortable back systems available. Ospreu's AirSpeed backsystem suspends an almost trampoline-like layer of mesh away from the rest of the pack to allow air to pass through and moisture to escape easily. This method is also far more comfortable as it forms around the shape of your back and moulds to fit you, rather than you adjusting to fit the pack. Moving further down, the hipbelt employs similar techniques, with the same mesh layered over a lightweight section of foam to take the weight off your bag and onto your hips. The hipbelt is also pre-curved and features sections of foam cut out to reduce weight and improve flexibility.

A unique and brilliant feature on many of Osprey's packs is their FlapJacket system. Put simply, you can remove the lid entirely which reveals a lightweight fabric cover to replace it. This reduces weight even further and allows you to strip the bag back to just the bare essentials. Another unique Osprey feature is their InsideOut compression system. On either side of the Eja, you have mesh stretch pockets for a bottle, jacket or other small items; on the one side the compression straps overlap the pocket and on the other they internally tighten. This means that if you have a bottle, the bottle is compressed into the pack for a secure fit, whereas the other side compresses the bag normally.

Perhaps one of Trekitt's favourite features of this bag is the Stow-on-the-go system; this ingenious pole attachment system allows walking poles to be stowed away without the need to remove the pack. Simply slide the poles into the two rubberised loops and tighten with the elastic drawcords, it's as easy as that. Ice axes can also be stored on the outer of the bag if you fancy a little winter mountaineering.

The Eja is the perfect balance of comfort, light-weight and support, all within a package which isn't too hard on the eyes either.
