The Radical 30 is exactly what it says, radical. The design and materials used are cutting edge and unlike anything else you're likely to come across. The use of Dyneema composite fabrics give the bag huge strength and durability whilst reducing the weight massively. With a unique style and super low weight you'd be forgiven for thinking this bag might lack any practical features but this awesome pack manages to tick all the boxes.
Extraordinarily lightweight and durable mountaineering backpack, fast compression system with Dyneema pull-cord.
Ferrino's Radical 30L certainly stands out from the crowd in many ways. With the extensive use of Dyneema composite fabric you get high strength, durability and super light weight meaning that this pack is able to reduce it's overall weight drastically compared to its competitors. However, the look of this fabric will put some off as it can't be coloured and has a crinkled, plastic look and feel to it. It's not all made from Dyneema so the back and shoulder straps are highly breathable so the pack is great to wear even on those long uphill climbs.
The pack has a lid with a large top pocket that opens with a protected zip while the main body of the pack closes witha simple draw cord and toggle. There are numerous gear loops, straps and additional storage points on the outside of the pack which includes pole attachments. The pack also has a compression system with cords that can be pulled from the hip belt that tighten up the pack down both sides. If you can get over the look and feel of the see-through Dyneema fabric this is an unbelievably light pack for its size and its is very usable.
