A small feature that tickled us is the inclusion of a foil blanket pre-packed in the tool compartment — a nod to the Crossmax’s big-mountain aspirations
The first thing that caught our eye on the Mavic was its clean lines. With streamlined, but generously-sized, side pockets and one large rear panel, it really appealed to the minimalists among us.
It also contained one of our favourite types of tool compartment — large, full of useful dividers and, with a zip around three sides and one that flipped fully flat when opened. This allowed instant access to every tool, without digging around, and also created a platform to display small parts and spares, while performing repairs.
With a zipped pocket on each shoulder strap and both sides of the waist belt, we were never short of a place for snacks and other essentials.
The rest of the pack’s volume is covered by one large compartment — great for taking just about anything we cared to throw in. A small feature that tickled us is the inclusion of a foil blanket pre-packed in the tool compartment — a nod to the Crossmax’s big-mountain aspirations.
