Freeflows have been a mainstay of the Berghaus pack range for decades and the latest generation has been enhanced by the addition of two women’s specific options. In order to provide the best possible comfort and coolness during use, the highly effective back system has been refined and now uses a carefully constructed combination of a curved design and mesh.
As a result, the Freeflows deliver the optimum balance of minimal contact between the back and pack, great load transfer and carry comfort, and low weight. Extensive on the hill tests have shown that backs remain 30% drier when using a Freeflow, compared to a close-fitting system, so that conversation on the hill can focus on the great views and what’s in the packed lunch, and be free of complaints about ‘sweaty back syndrome’.
The Berghaus women’s Freeflow 25 and 35 packs have been designed for the female body, and this is reflected in the back length, harness shape and design of the hip belts. The Freeflows are packed with useful features for a day on the hill. Their fit can be customised with a height adjustable chest strap (both packs) and adjustable waist strap (Freeflow 35), and top tension straps. Useful external storage comes in the form of stretch side bottle pockets and a zipped pocket in the hip belt. Both packs are compatible with hydration systems and include rain covers, and other handy features include side compression straps, a zipped front pocket, dual walking pole holders, and panel-access zip opening. The women’s Freeflow 35 weighs 1305g and the Freeflow 25 weighs 1155g.
The women’s Freeflow 35 retails at £95 and the women’s Freeflow 25 retails at £75. Both packs are available now from www.berghaus.com and selected specialist outdoor retailers.
