Lightwave’s Fastpack rucksacks, available in 40-litre and 50-litre models, 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 aluminium stays in the back system allow the Fastpack to support loads of 9–12 kg comfortably, and the close-fitting design of the back panel ensures good carrying stability.
All the seams on the main body and lid are either welded or taped, making the Fastpack virtually waterproof 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.)
Ski-holders at the base of each side can be combined with the side-compression system to carry skis securely.
The hallmarks of Lightwave products are design and durability - they occupy the gap between very light no frills options and heavier more traditional gear. Lightwave Packs are no exception - slightly heavier than an ultralight pack but with a robust internal frame tough fabrics and a well thought out carry system - they fit their role perfectly.
The FASTPACK series is designed for Ultralightweight trekking Weekend backpacking and Ski touring. Both the 25lbs carry weight and the 40 litre capacity are perfect for ultralight backpacking loads.
