Looking to buy a new pack but I don't know...

Posted on

Looking to buy a new pack but I don't know whitch to choose: The Arc'teryx Arrakis 50 or the Osprey Variant 52. I'm planning to break it in on an 8 day long crosscountry skitrip in Norway (sleeping in snowshelters and mooving all my stuff on my back.) Not planning to pack heavy it's definitley this size I'm looking for.
Thanks.

This is a quality made pack designed exactly for what you are looking for. I don't think you could go wrong if this pack is your choice.

The Arrakis 50 is a completely waterproof bag, and twice the price of the Variant 52. If the temps will be below freezing the whole time, which I'm guessing they would be in Norway during the winter, so the waterproof aspect would probably be unneeded. The Variant is probably the right choice.

Hope this helps.
