The Ranger backpack is another quality product from Wisport and includes some well thought out features. With summer underway, if you are going to be carrying a backpack for extended periods you need something that is very comfortable and quick ‘n easy to put on and take off.
This particular backpack has really nicely shaped and well-padded shoulder straps that sit well and stay in place, even when you are moving around. The air mesh padding stops sweat from building up under the straps, which can be a major irritation with some backpacks. It’s also possible to carry the pack using just one strap reasonably comfortably, without it sliding off all the time. The back of the pack also features heavily padded breathable panels adding to the comfort of the carry.
The quick-release chest strap and the oversized removable waist strap are effective at keeping the Ranger from bouncing around. This makes carrying a full load in hot weather far less uncomfortable and irritating.
Space-wise, the Ranger has two large main compartments and a smaller front pocket, all easily accessible and featuring good quality zips. For added convenience, there are elasticated sleeve pockets on the sides of the pack, for quick and easy access to drinks or binoculars, so you don’t have to take the bag off and root around inside.
The Cordura material is very durable and, cleverly, they have applied a PU coating to the inside surfaces of the material, where it is less likely to wear off. This is to increase water resistance. There is also a rain cover included and it’s stored in its own compartment at the bottom of the pack.
Front and side compression straps allow you to adapt the pack to the size and shape of what you are carrying, so nothing rattles and makes noise or shifts around to distract from the overall comfort of the carry. With minimal external attachment points, the relatively simple and snag-free outside of the bag means you are not likely to get hung up on anything.
This is a great backpack from Wisport and it comes with a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee, which shows just how much confidence they have in their product. It’s a comfortable and simply laid out piece of kit that you can carry in all weathers, and despite it being well built, the pack itself is relatively light. Without the multiple external features and internal divisions that many backpacks offer, it’s a basic, yet very useful, well-priced item.
