We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Lovely and light


My husband bought his a few months ago, so I decided to do the same. It’s so light and comfortable to wear, and I can easily reach my bottle of water while still walking.

5g lighter than the 160g advertised.


Bought this backpack to carry an APS-C size camera. I built a simple open box 7""H x 7.5"W x 6"D of 1" thick foam rubber sheet which weighs near zero to insert into the backpack for the camera. The lightest bespoke "camera rucksack" I could find weighs 450g. The Rohan backpack + insert weighs 240g. I tried the kit out yesterday - I am very happy!

Perfect for me


I bought this backpack after shoulder surgery. It is brilliant. Obviously lightweight but the shoulder straps are great because they don’t dig in. Good range of pockets. Shower proof, but I bought a cover for when it really rains. Now thinking about buying the bigger version too.

Handy addition


Super light, comfy to use addition to our kit. On the days when you go out for a walk, and there’s a chance of a shower, this ruck sack is ideal. No weight at all, throw waterproof in, if it rains then this packs down so small, you just pop it in your pocket.

Well made and strong enough to use carrying a flask etc. Something I didn’t realise I needed, but now wouldn’t be without.
