This has been a long awaited pack for those wanting a quality lightweight product which crosses over and equally meets the needs of the adventure racer, the lightweight backpacker and superlight mountaineer.

With the longest back length in the range of 55cm it is suitable for those around the 5'10" to 6'0" mark, but please measure your back for sure, using the link at the bottom of the page.

Weight has been saved using lighter material on the body and keeping the more durable surface for the base and select parts of the structure which will get heavier use.

It uses the same one handed lash strap release system as the Adventure Light 20. The strap is clipped closed at the base of the pack, with the end of the strap fixed on the male part. The tension release is on the top of the strap at the lid pocket, which offers a variety of user options.

Option one: to close the pack and pull the tension tight. Or if you have the MSC in place, this tension can be pulled tight either, over or under the MSC depending on what you desire.

Option two: quick access into the pack doesn't rely on unclipping the bottom clip. Simply release the tension at the top and slide the whole lid sideways for instant one handed access. Popular I'm told with climbers, or when it's raining and you want quick access.

Unlike all the other OMM packs this is supplied with the shockcord compression system installed which runs up both sides of the structure. With the pack on, you simply reach behind to below the mesh pockets and a quick tug on the cord will compress the pack.

The two side pockets, have the same tension closure system as used on the OMM Classic. I love these, as you can clamp whatever is in there completely closed, be it bottle, food, walking poles or whatever.

The hip belt has two generous pockets, big enough for a camera, food, gloves and such items. The top pocket is ample for the larger items as one would expect.

The neck collar of the sack is very generous, allowing you to roll it over several times to ensure whatever you have inside, stays put.

The MSC compressor, is easily attached to the various points, and will provide stash space as well as compression.

What does the optional MSC do?

The lightweight MSC (Multi Sport Compressor) is a stretch mesh compressor with 8 attachment points designed to clip onto virtually all the OMM packs, and provide a stash area suitable for helmets, clothing, wet shelters etc. There is a knack to attaching the MSC successfully to your OMM pack, as there is a series of subtle tabs for the shock cord to run through. However, once correctly installed you will be able to reach two pull tabs and with one sharp tug the whole pack will compress inwards to stabilise the load.

The Platformat back system has a metal stay in it which can be bend to suit your back profile. However the whole thing is easily removed and we've found a Thermarest Prolite or Neoair slips in there nicely. A few puffs and you have an inflatable back system, which more importantly saves on storage space. (Please note the OMM DuoMat is not compatable as it is 9cm too short)

The shoulder harness has upper synch straps to draw the pack closer and of course the rest of the harness/pack has all the OMM attachment points for LINK items, such as OMM-i-Gamy Bottle and Chest Pouch. All in all a great lightweight pack, with options for all kinds of end users.

 

What does the 'LINK" system refer to?

Anything which is marked as LINK compatible will find a matching location point on any of the corresponding OMM packs. This includes, OMM-i-Gamy, Ultra Pouch 6, Chest Pouch and MSC items. Thus providing more flexibility across all your OMM rucksacks.

Great lightweight pack with superb compression
Monday, 18 January 2016  | 

As another reviewer said, it needs the MSC for the front to make this pack really standout.

I took it on a 5 day hike in the Atlas for a winter walk. No tent, just bag, matt, clothes, food and technical equipment. Used the full capacity of the pack (55 L).

Adjustments for ascending and descending were very easy and the hip straps are perfect for my height (6ft). Very comfortable pack - i'd being using an Arete before this which I think is too small for my height.

Only complaint is that the gear rail dosen't come with an immediately usable ice axe loop, so I had to construct one from a shoe lace which I take on trips anyway. Not a massive problem.

One clip access to the top which is combined with top compression and side access is really quick and easy to use.

the lightweight rigidity insert is VERY good at redistributing weight.

We ended up yomping down a hill to catch a transport back to town. really fun and comfortable to run with.

Spent too long on the internet looking, on which pack to improve my kit.
The two 45lts OMM packs, were the ones that kept coming back to. My concern choosing the Adventure against the Villain, was how hardwearing would it be.
As my drive was to reduce my pack weigh I clicked on this pack.
ITíS STOP ON!!!!!
Itís totally up to the job, packs and balances beautifully. Loads of pockets, for on the move storage.
Shows it has been designed by people that play a good game and donít just talk it.
Used it for 21day/nights, mix of fell and long distance walking. In this time I havenít spotted any areas that could be improved.
If youíre a backpacker that looking for 45 Ė 55Lts, you donít ALWAYS have ice axes swinging off your sack, buy this one.
Thanks Rose and Bob for the great service again.

Everything you need...nothing you don't
Tuesday, 7 May 2013  | 

Having decided to "go lightweight" this year (hitting 50 years of age does that to you), I researched several 40-50 ltr packs before plumping for the Adventure 45+10 and I am not disappointed! I took it on a little practise 'jaunt' this w/e before a 4-day wild camping trip in a few weeks and packed it to 11kgs to test it out.
It has been described as a stripped down version of the Villain, but that undermines it. Alpine packs should be stripped down! With comfortable padding (see below), hydration pouch, four easily accessible hip pockets it has everything you need. The quality is superb, although not made from Dyneema like its big brother (it's 210T polyamide nylon for the tecchies). I have removed the platformat and replaced it with my Thermorest. When slightly inflated, it is as comfortable a back support as you could wish. This thing really hugs your back in the right way (I am 5' 10 - with a 55cm back length - but I would guess it would be fine for people of 2 inches height either way). You just don't feel it on your back like other packs. Not only that, but it looks great too! If you decide on one of these, get the Leanweight MSC to go with it (OMM really should not make it an optional extra).
My first time using backpackinglight and one of the best levels of service you could wish for. It will not be my last visit here.
