Eon 14L Backpack
$120; Namuk.us

The roll-top is very easy to open and the inner lining can be pulled out easily for cleaning or to use as a sit pad in the forest. The completely reflective drawcords provide visibility in the twilight and at the same time help to compress the rucksack when the provisions have been polished off. The water bottle also fits comfortably in the side pocket and can be fixed with an additional elastic band – so it is always at hand yet safely stowed away.
