Lowe Alpine Aeon ND33 Rucksack Women's Fit Review 2019/01/08
From commuting and solo trips to the forest the Lowe Alpine AEON ND33
rucksack performs well. Let’s see if this pack will work for you in
our full review.
Lowe Alpine AEON’s range are a new series of daypacks. Focused on being
lightweight and versatile but also technical. They can be used for a
wide range of activities. For instance climbing and the daily commute.
Lowe Alpine offers a selection of sizes. 18 litre up to 33 litre with
either a zip entry or top loader design. We have been testing the AEON
Lowe Alpine’s ND range offers something unique. These are rucksacks that
make use of a female specific fit. Taking into account back length, hip
belt shape, shoulder straps and load distribution. All of these adjusted
to fit the female backpacker. It is encouraging to see a company so
dedicated to making women’s fit packs.
The back length of the AEON ND33 pack
is adjustable. A back length of 36 – 46cm will work well here. This is
such an important yet often overlooked feature. Above all being able to
adjust the back length makes for a perfect fit. And, encouragingly,
there are other colour options than pink!
The Aeon ND33 has a plethora of features which makes it a highly
versatile pack. For example using the Aeon ND33 for a solo trip to the
woods, it proved to be an excellent companion. The ND design, as
explained above, makes for an effective fit. Meaning as a women you will
have a comfortable day using this pack.
The weight at just 0.88 kg is very
light indeed. The design of the shoulder straps also add to the
comfortable feeling of the pack. Lowe Alpine call the back system and
shoulder straps the Flexion Harness. The ‘ultra-thin, low profile
harness’ is very comfortable and does not dig in.
Other features include the MultiLock
which means you can attach a helmet, or hiking poles to the pack. The
Aeon ND33 features a side zip, which means you can access parts of the
pack without having to unpack everything. Very useful when on the go and
you don’t want to stop and unpack and then repack to move off again. A
security pocket in the lid means you can keep your valuables safe. A
further lid compartment, side pockets and pockets on the hip belt means
there is plenty of ways to keep your gear organised.
This is an excellent versatile pack. Once on your back you can focus on
the task at hand as the Aeon ND33 works seamlessly with you. It's small
and lightweight yet durable enough to be slung around. Lowe Alpine have
made a great pack here. Recommended
