UOG TOP PICK - Montane Ultra Tour 55  Litre Pack - Best for Adventure Racing, Superlight Backpacking and Events - We've singled out Montane's Ultra Tour Packs as one of our top recommendations because they offer a superb range of features and a decent harness suited to ultralight backpacking.

Montane says: Fast, long distance multi day mountain trail pack.

From the pacific Crest Trail to the Pennine Way the new Ultra Tour 55 is the ultimate large super lightweight multi day mountain pack. It's unique design features a roll-top closure for fast access to clothing and equipment and large stretch mesh pockets for storage of route maps, water bottles, fly sheets and other essentials. Features a new 'Comfort Vent Back Pad' system which offers superb comfort. The ultra lightweight, minimalist nature of the Ultra Tour 55 makes it ideal for fast packing and ultra lightweight backpackers.

Montane's Ultra Tour 55 weighs 836grams, which is pretty good for a 55Litre pack, though it achieves this in part because it doesn't have a frame - having said that it mitigates this by having a really good hipbelt, padded back and reasonable shoulder straps with top tensioners. Using these attributes you can get a pretty good fit, especially if you pack your gear with a bit of thought.

The pack reminds us of a GoLite Jam, which weighed about the same and had a similarly good carry for a frameless pack. The feature set is very similar as well, the Ultra Tour has a large zipped mesh pocket on the outside of the pack, which is ideal for wet stuff such as a flysheet or waterproofs. There's a stretch mesh pocket on each hipbelt and further mesh pouches on the shoulder straps that will take Montane's new flimsy water bottles.

Inside there's the pouch for a water bladder and an exit port in the top centre. As with most superlight packs there's no 'lid' - the top rolls down and clicks into place with two quick release buckles.

Very lightweight and great value

I wanted to replace my old and heavy backpacks with something much lighter. I didn't want to sacrifice capacity, nor strength. Luckily the Ultra Tour 55 is well-made and has some nice features. I like the easy access to the top, which rolls down to a smaller size if you don't fill the whole pack. The front pocket is very handy and I managed to fit a 1 litre Sigg water bottle in there. I guess you could also put snacks there too. Overall, an excellent pack and superb value.
