    In 2019 Inov8 renews its entire range of backpacks and launches the new one Inov8 Race Ultra Pro 5 Vest, backpack-vest that has pleasantly surprised us as it is one of the most complete on the market in its range, that is, the small capacity backpacks (5 liters).

    Going into flour already we see how you like it from the beginning, since Inov8 presents a light backpack of only 274 grams (not counting the softflask) for a total capacity of 5 liters, mainly composed of a large central pocket (with velcro closure) that It provides an optimal fit that completely prevents undesirable bounces, whether we use it as a simple vest or up to the load. In addition, it has some external elastic straps (in my case I removed them) to carry a garment on the outside of the backpack and another series of pockets that I will explain later. So this central load capacity is very well dimensioned, so it must be clear that with its 5 liters it allows us, with a correct selection of material, to use it both for short races and for the queen test of ultra-distance, the magical , while tough, 100 miles.

  • Review: Cumulus X-Lite 300 Sleeping Bag

    The philosophy of the artisan factory of the Polish brand Cumulus is simplicity, lightness and quality where the X-LITE range of sleeping bags is the ultimate expression of this philosophy. They are specialists in the careful manufacture of ultralight bags with quality pen and excellent durability.

    After suffering a few mountain trips of several days (fastpacking) sleeping in the open air with the result of going quite cold, I decided that I needed a new bag for fastpacking, I had to be light as I had but really warm. So I opted for this Cumulus model that only sells Pindio in Spain. They have lighter models but since I'm a little cold, I prefer to carry a few grams more but sleep more warm.
