The Lowe Alpine Aeon 18 is a stylish lightweight pack designed to be used as a multi-purpose daypack for a variety of outdoor activities. This small, versatile, zip-entry pack strikes a great balance between minimalist design, low weight, comfort and active breathability, all achieved through a series of innovative features.
Of particular note, we really like the laminated, EVA foam back panel of the new Air Contour back system. This dual density, semi-rigid airflow system helps to enhance ventilation and reduce the buildup of perspiration on the user’s back, whilst not reducing the usability of the pack - as seen in similar more rigid designs from other brands. In addition to the Air Contour back system the Aeon 18 incorporates a very lightweight low profile ‘Flexion’ harness; made from a 2% stretch flexion fabric which contours around the body and shoulders, allowing the load of the pack to be spread more evenly. This makes for an ultra thin design which is light, supportive, comfortable and durable. To further increase comfort and reduce weight the Aeon 18 does not feature any supportive rigid framework and has a smooth transition between the backplate and hip strap, reducing the risk of rubbing and discomfort. Further to this, an adjustable Velcro back panel ensures a bespoke fit for each user, if the day’s activities take a different turn this simple mechanism is also easy to readjust in the field,
Lowe Alpine use a strong, abrasion resistant 100D x 210D nylon to construct the Aeon packs. The fabric is coated in Lowe Alpine’s unique TriShield® coating. This further increases the durability, tear and abrasion resistance of the pack. In terms of features, the exterior of the pack provides a large reinforced stretch stash pocket, ideal for quickly stuffing a jacket or other items of clothing, along with two smaller stretch mesh hipbelt pockets.Two zip pockets, one on the exterior and one on the interior of the pack ideal for valuable items such as car keys or a phone. Finally, two multi-lock external attachments can be used to attach walking poles, ice axes or even a helmet.
All in all the Aeon 18 is ideal for the individual who is looking for a highly breathable and lightweight rucksack to be their day-to-day companion, without compromising style, comfort and versatility.
