We all know that feeling when you get home from a hike and your backpack or kitbag has failed to keep the rain out. Soggy possessions and a miserable evening spent trying to dry them – sometimes in a tent – is far from ideal. This makes getting yourself a quality waterproof backpack or kitbag a top priority for any outdoor adventure.

But it also needs to be comfortable to wear and easy to use. After all, it’s no good keeping your stuff safe and sound if you’re left with stiff shoulders and an aching back at the end of a long day.

Now that’s quite a checklist for a backpack or kitbag. So we’ve teamed up with Highlander, the outdoor experts since 1985. Designed in Scotland but made to take on the world, their range of backpacks and kitbags are built to look good, feel good, and keep you safe on any adventure.

Even better, they’ve offered us a Summit 40L Backpack (worth £59.99) and a Storm Kitbag 65L (worth £79.99) to give away to two lucky Wired For Adventure readers. To be in with a chance of winning one of these fantastic prizes, all you have to do is answer a simple question.
