Our View - Thule Stir 35L:
The Thule Stir 35L is a brilliant day pack with an adjustable back system for up to 10cm adjustment for a perfect fit. Access is via a pull close top with fold over storm flap for protection. Additional access is via a side zip which allows you to get to gear lower down the pack without having to empty it all out.
The back panel is really well ventilated and this extends to the hipbelt and shoulder straps too. The versatility of the Stir is great thanks to the removeable hipbelt and sternum strap which converts the pack from being capacble of carrying a heavy load comfortable into an about town pack when the additional support isn’t needed.
Thule have designed a very practical weather protection system in the form of the StormGurad which utilises a combination of the integrated raincover and a waterproof bottom section of the pack. The benefits of this being that when you needed to access the contents in wet weather and thus remove the raincover the base of the pack is still protected so you can put it down without worry.
The Stir features multiple external attachment loops for lashing additional gear including a specific pole/ice axe attachment and light bar. There are further external pockets on the front and sides that can be used to stow items quickly.
