This specially designed Kit Bag is a great companion to any trek. Light, bright, tough and extremely spacious, this 80 litre kit bag is recommended for most Explore trips, especially those with porters. Large carry handles and grab handles at either end make it easy to pull down from those overhead storage areas or off the bus or even a conveyor belt. The bright, standout red also makes it instantly recognisable on the conveyor belt. Size: L - 74cm, H - 39cm, D - 27cm.
