A backpack is supremely important for a backpacking trip. Hec, what’s a backpacking trip without the backpack? When my blue Eastpak backpack finally gave in after two and a half years of almost daily use, I needed a new one. And I needed a better one.
No offence to Eastpak, but I needed a supportive, multi-functional backpack that would last YEARS and looked good. I had heard amazing things about the Osprey Celeste backpack and about Osprey as a superior backpacking brand in general, so they were my first and only port of call.
Why the Osprey Celeste backpack?
Let me explain why I needed a new backpack and why I chose the Osprey Celeste in this 5 minute video! I cover how the backpack looks, it’s durability and functionality as well as safety features and the quality of the backpack.
Both have been tried and tested: over 3 months of daily commutes and a weekend trip to Amsterdam with only the backpack as hand luggage.
And is it worth the £70 price tag? I would probably need to have used it a couple more years, but I’m confident it’s a yes!
Buy the Osprey Celeste 29l backpack for £70 with free delivery from Osprey’s website here in several colours.
And a hi-vis raincover for £18 is perfect for the Osprey Celeste from Osprey’s website here.
