Small Footprint, Huge Space

JRC's Contact 40L Rucksack – looks compact, yet can house the kitchen sink.

One of those soles that carries too much? Or think you don't carry a lot but it still looks like a lot (i.e. 'it's a three tripper')? Or are you one of those we look at and genuinely think are dead as you lay there motionless under your shelter of twigs because you've cut back so much you've binned the bivvy and bedchair? Now, thanks to the redesigned Contact 40L Rucksack, you can take everything you need, in one go, all in one clever, well-designed system.

Manufactured from a hardwearing 500D, 100% polyester dark (and very carpy) green fabric, it has six separate, double zipped (and now fitted with heavy-duty zips and pullers) pockets for safe storage of all tackle items, PVC-backed main compartment flap and is fitted with a very comfortable high-density padded harness plus a grab handle and all within a footprint that measures a mere 45 x 38 x 39cm. And better than all of this is the RRP: under fifty-quid, which is you shop around you might find for a tenner less.

'GIMME': £49.99; jrc-fishing.co.uk
