Expert Rucksack Fitting In Store

Our staff use the packs we sell, so head in to store for some great advice to help you find the perfect pack to suit your needs and get it properly fitted for free.

Whether you’re walking a section of Hadrian’s Wall or the whole of the Inca Trail, you don’t want an ill-fitting pack to spoil your enjoyment. As well as deciding on the features you need, such as a raincover, hydration compatibility, walking pole loops, various pockets and of course the size, it is vital to ensure the pack is a good fit.

Everybody is a different shape, so the layout of shoulder straps, hip belt and chest straps needs to be right for you. Some packs are adjustable, some come in a range of sizes, some even have heat-mouldable components to match your shape exactly. Most packs will be comfortable when there’s nothing in them, so once we’ve measured your back and adjusted the bag, we’ll try it on you with weight in. Of course, you’ll need to make sure it’s OK with your kit in it, so we recommend you load it up once you get it home and try it out: you’re very welcome to bring it back in for fine tuning.

For your FREE in-store rucksack fitting, visit your local store. The stores can sometimes get very busy at lunchtimes or on the weekends, so call ahead to book an appointment so that you don't miss out!
