Robens – Launch lightweight packs

Robens have sent us a press release heralding the launch of their new small, but perfectly formed lightweight packs, and they do look rather nifty – ideal for trips where you need to pack light, but want to stash a smaller day pack.


The new range provides three models; the Zip Dry Packs, UL (Ultra Light) Dry Packs and UL Day Packs. All are made from tough PU-coated Cordura ripstop nylon – meaning you don’t comprise on durability, comfort isn’t compromised either as all the bags feature shoulder straps that can be adjusted for comfort. And  if these things are important to you, you’ll be delighted to hear that they come in three  different “eye-catching contemporary colours – Burnt Orange, Dusty Blue and Light Olive.”

Both Dry Pack models include a 12cm x 9cm compact carry bag for storage and feature a waterproof main compartment. The use of a Hypalon roll-top closure ensures the main compartment stays waterproof while creating a wide access to the contents.




The 23-litre Zip Dry Pack weighs in at 142g and has a variety of pockets to help organise contents, including a front zip pocket and a pouch on each side for your water bottle.

Zip Dry Pack Burnt OrangeThe 28-litre UL Dry Pack weighs just 88g. It includes an adjustable drawstring on the front – perfect for cycle helmets, jackets etc. (see main picture)

Last, but not least as the name suggests, the UL Day Pack is also ultra light – this simpler water-resistant pack is just 65g. It packs down to a mere 9cm x 9cm x 4cm and tucks into its own inner pocket when not in use.


Price: Zip Dry Packs £34.99; UL Dry Packs £29.99; UL day Packs £19.99 (RRP)
