Win a Millet Prolighter rucksack – the ‘Guess the Weight’ competition is back!


Millet Prolighter 25

After a few weeks break, the Guess the Weight competition is back! We’ve got two brilliant Millet Prolighter rucksacks to give away to the closest guesses to weight of Dave’s Prolighter rucksack…

Millet Prolighter 25

As you may know, in the next week or two we’ll be getting a new brand into the store - Millet. Millet’s a French Alpine brand and make brilliant packs, clothing and equipment. We’ve been really impressed with the quality and design of the gear we’ve seen and we’re looking forward to getting to know the brand better and getting in some of their great kit.

Millet rucksack in use

With the above in mind, we’ve got two Millet Prolighter rucksacks to give away (one 25L and one 30L) worth £80 & £100 each. For want of a better idea, we thought we’d run another ‘guess the weight’ competition: The closest two people to guess the weight of Dave’s loaded pack below win (Brand New) Millet Prolighter Rucksacks. The details and ‘rules’ are below!

Millet Prolighter Rucksack

Dave’s just back from a couple of weeks in Austria. He took a couple of Millet packs out with him and his partner to test on via ferrata routes and some ‘light’ mountaineering. He’s brought in his pack with all the essentials pictured and listed below.


All you have to do is: -


  • Tweet us the total weight and retweet our competition post
  • Or, comment on our facebook post with your guess of the total weight (pack + contents) and share the post
  • (you might want to follow us or like us too so you can find out if you’ve won)


Dave loaded pack is below and you have to guess the weight. It’s a Millet Prolighter 25L rucksack and aside from checking the weight of the pack on the product page, he’s helpfully included all the items he was carrying in the pack here:
