Welcome to my new Tuesday LIVE Lunchtimes at 1pm where I show you what running gear I’m testing each week and answer your questions about it. This week, as you may notice, is not live as I am on holiday in Pembrokeshire, it’s my honeymoon actually, whoop!
However I didn’t want you to miss out on a Tuesday review so I filmed this Alpkit Artlu 10 litre pack (£45) before I went, and I’ll catch up with you about it after I review the next pack next week at 1pm.
In this live broadcast you’ll find out how this £45 pack compares with those £100 more in price from the main trail running brands in my previous film here youtu.be/uwGOxRJ308k
I have about 10 more still to test, so tell me which one you’d most like to see next week, the Aonijie Cross-Country Running Backpack 5L or the UltrAspire Momentum in the comments below.
If you decide to buy any of these packs from Amazon then pls do click on this link first amzn.to/2x8BCTE then search for the pack you require, as that will give me a tiny kick back at no cost to you. THANK YOU if you do this.
JOIN! Wild Ginger GEAR TEST CLUB (#WGGearTestClub) to discuss kit choices and purchases with me and like-minded, helpful runners.
Transparency: As per usual for all outdoor journalists, I was sent this kit to test out free of charge. I am not paid to wear and review this kit and I provide trusted, independent reviews just as I did as editor of Trail Running magazine 2010-17.
