Carrying all your gear for a day on or off the trail requires a versatile pack with plenty of useful, accessible storage. But nobody wants to be weighed down with a bulky, unwieldy backpack. You know the ones – they have a nasty habit of knocking your trail buddy flying whenever you turn around. Big Agnes has designed the streamlined Ditch Rider 32 with versatility and practicality in mind. Take it hiking, biking, travelling or city strolling. The 32-litre capacity is the perfect size for big days out, while compartmentalised storage means there’s room for everything from spare layers, snacks and supplies to a 2-litre hydration bladder. It’s comfortable to carry too, and features plenty of external pockets plus a zippered back panel to ensure easy, fast access to your essentials

Big Agnes is a small, independent US outdoor brand out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado – a small ski-town that we’ve never visited but which we like to imagine is full of mountain-loving, trail-hiking outdoorsy types. That would make sense, since the company makes some of the best ultralight backpacking gear around, including the award-winning Copper Spur, Tiger Wall and Fly Creek tents. It is kit that has clearly been designed by a gang of folks who love sleeping in the dirt just as much as we do here at WildBounds.
Oh, and if you’re still wondering where the heck that name Big Agnes comes from, we did try to find out. Depending on who you talk to, it’s either an affectionate tribute to a legendary truck drivin’ mountain mama, or a 12,000 foot peak in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness. We kinda like the first one better.
