Lim 35, Octan 40, Vaude Triset 35+8
Hi - I'm looking for a 40 litre ish rucksack for overnighters and i've narrowed it down to the following:-
Berghaus Octans 40 - not sure, carries like the OMM32?...(not my favourite...)
Haglofs Lim 35 - a bit heavier than i hoped (1050g)
Vaude Triset 35+8 - know nothing much about these.
Can anyone give me their opinions on these, or something similar out there? i was hoping to keep the sac weight around 750g but its not a deal breaker.
I've got a Golite Jam and an OMM32 at the moment.
Octans seems to carry much like a Classic 32 yes. Of course no idea if precisely the same but the one I tried seemed to fit my back (rare!) and very similar principles so I'd think very similar.
Osprey's Hornet 32 is ~600g. Would have to check if its big enough I guess, and I'm not sold on that compression strap arrangement. Exos/Talon in the same sizes maybe weight plausible too.
Any reason for not the slightly smaller Golite Jam relative?
The LIMs were cheap, yes, because (as per PTC) they're canning them. Replacements seemingly a little bit heavier again?
Thanks, i was thinking about the Golite Peak 35, will have another look.
Probably out of all of them, the LIM 35 has impressed the most, i really like its features. But the Berghaus and the Vaude are closer to the weight i was hoping for.
I think an Osprey Hornet 32 may be too tight, the Hornet 46 looks impressive but i cant see it stocked in the UK?.... I've already got an Exos 58.
I'd be interested to know if anyones used the Triset 35+8
Hornet 46 doesn't exist in the UK. I've asked! Must think the market is only there in America or something.
The Triset, i have the ultralight 35 and the 35+8, i prefer the former.
Main nag for me is the side pockets on the 35+8, they're too small, (i like to stick my tent in a side pocket with the top secured under the packs lid, not possible with this) and not stretchy mesh either, the lid zip is of the wrap around type too, which some people hate as gear can fall out when you're rummaging for an item, personally i prefer it though.
The padding in the shoulder straps is also a little firmer than i'd like and can dig a little after a few hours.
Tough pack though, and i do use it over the ultralight when i need that little extra space for winter trips.

Thanks Twiggy, when i've checked it was the ultralight 35 i'd seen in the shop, i've then mistakenly went home and compared it to the 35+8 online, so its the former i was interested in.
Yes, I think the Lim 35 is closer to 38 litres Diddy, seems much bigger than my OMM32

If you're interested, I've got an as-new Triset 35+8 (standard, not the ultralight) for sale for a very reasonable price.
Thanks for the offer Jake but it was the ultralight 35 @ 700g i was more interested in. I mistook the 35+8 for the same sac when i googled it when i got home.
Looked at an Octans, considered (as it carried quite well), but decided that it really was considerably too close to a classic 32 to have both. Think its a little larger but its definetly not a massive 40 litres. Certainly less than the Villain I tried checking it against, and they're not massive for their quoted size.
