While adventure racing might not be on the radar of most ultralight backpackers, adventure racing gear certainly shows up on our pack lists and wish lists quite often. Companies like Terra Nova, OMM, Inov-8, Salomon, and Brooks-Range are well known for their drool-worthy adventure racing equipment and clothing. Now UK-based Berghaus has entered the fray. Their special R&D team, MtnHaus, has given special effort to designing the frameless Octans 40 for two-time Adventure Racing World Champion, Team Orion.
It is not often that Backpacking Light reviews an adventure race pack. However, the Octans 40 has definite crossover appeal to ultralight backpackers. As such, we are reviewing it as a backpack, not as an adventure racing pack.
