Backpack review: KTM Epic

KTM Epic backpack £63.35
Miles covered/time:
11,000/nine months

What’s good? Made exclusively by Ogio for KTM, this rucksack has stood the test of winter, spring, something akin to summer and around 11,000 miles.

It’s been laden to the brim with tools and other man-stuff in every one of its four main two-way zip-sealed compartments and not popped a stitch.

And it has gone everywhere with a 15in laptop wedged into another securely padded area.

There are also compartments for stashing water bottles, pens, keys, notepads, and fleece-lined pockets for an MP3 player and sunnies.

All straps are adjustable and it’s proven comfortable over 2500 miles in three days – the large mesh rear prevents sweating. In all a sturdy bugger.

What’s not? The price. Carrying the KTM logo makes it a cool rucksack, but doesn’t justify the £60+ price.

Rating: 4/5
