Lowe Alpine Mens Aeon 35 Anthracite Information

Season : 2020W C OFFER

Brand : Lowe Alpine

Code : FTE-65-AN

The Aeon is Lowe Alpine's latest creation for those who want a pack to do it all. It's a pack for those who have had the same 5kg canvas backpack for 20 years and felt no need to update it until it fell apart. It's for those who want to buy a pack, use it for anything and everything while loving every minute with it. Whether you're using it for climbing, walking, skiing, running or even the most demanding daily commute, it's designed to offer comfort, simplicity and reliability for years to come.

Starting with the most influental part of the Aeon, Lowe Alpine feature their tried and tested Air Contour back system to provide the greatest level of comfort and breathability for demanding walks, runs and climbs. It's gloriously simple, lightweight and adjustable for a varying heights and sizes. Adjustability is carried out by a velcro backpanel which can be slid up and down, while two sized bags (M/L, L/XL) can be selected for the particularly tall or average build. Not only is the backpanel infinitely adjustable, but exceptionally breathable thanks to Lowe Alpine's moulded foam and spacer mesh construction, allowing air to pass behind your back for increased comfort on hot days. This construction is also flexible and can be folded for travel use (unlike rigid frame alternatives). It's instantly comfortable and needs little adjusting before you can skip your way happily down the trail.

One of the first things you notice when strapping the Aeon to your back is how minimalist yet supportive the hipbelt is. To the sceptical, traditional rucksack viewer, it looks like it wouldn't take much more weight than a bag of crisps. However having popped 15kg in for a little tester, I can confirm that not only is it supportive, but exceptionally comfortable thanks to how lightweight and flexible it is. This is then further increased by a layer of breathable foam which wicks away sweat and doesn't create hot spots or discomfort. On the outer of the hipbelt are two zipped pockets, ideal for a phone, snacks or keys. 

Moving onto pockets, you're given the two hipbelt pockets previously mentioned, a large stretch outer pocket for a jacket or other quick to access items, one outer pocket on the lid, one inner pocket on the lid, two large stretch side pockets for bottles (these will take a 1L bottle of water easily), a hydration sleeve and lastly your main storage compartment with a pull cord to close the top. On the 35 litre model, you'll also notice that there is a side zip to allow you entry into the bag without empying all your kit out. It's fair to say that you've got enough pockets to store just about every trail accessory you could possibly want. On top of this, ice axe loops are included for winter climbing and walking poles will fit here too. 

Whether you're walking, climbing, running, skiing, commuting or simply using for daily life, the Aeon is a gloriously simple, lightweight and overall brilliant pack which guarantees comfort and durability for those who want one pack to last years of use and abuse.

Professional Opinion

Words by Trekitt's Hannah Campbell. Check out her full review and blog here.

As we were packing to head up North, the boys from upstairs asked us to take the new Lowe Alpine Aeon packs for a test run to see what we thought. We were honestly blown away by them; so I thought I’d fill you in on why these excited us so much.



So, I took the Womens Aeon ND16 and Jamie took the Mens Aeon 35 (Lowe Alpine have developed these packs in three sizes for women and men). They are slightly different beasts, so I’m going to focus on the ND16 (although most of these points will apply to all of them).

This pack ended up suiting me for pretty much everything. On the one day it rained we headed to Beacons climbing centre for a little training session indoors. Between the two packs we fitted our 40m rope, 4 pairs of climbing shoes, chalk bags, water, snacks, and we still had enough room to throw in our quickdraws (important if we were going to climb outside). We also did all of our trekking, scrambling, running and general mooching in these bags (the ND16 also fits our MacBook Pro in pretty perfectly).

It’s designed as an all season bag and boasts that in its stripped down, functional style. The aeon does everything you need it to, all year round. Nothing more, nothing less. It doesn’t have any extra faffy straps, it’s simple to use, it’s incredibly lightweight and it’s amazingly comfortable. Let’s get into the (ever exciting) techy stuff!


The Back System

Lowe Alpine use their own Air Contour back system, which is pretty epic for several reasons. First of all, it’s exceptionally breathable. It’s constructed with moulded foam and spacer mesh which means that air can pass between your back and the bag (no more sweaty backs, yay!). This also means that this back system is totally flexible because it doesn’t have a solid frame; so the pack be folded or rolled up and put into a larger pack if you are off travelling. This back system is also adjustable (Yup, even in the smaller packs!) and will fit back lengths of 36cm – 46cm – just slide the velcro back panel up or down to suit you.

Shoulder Harness and Hip Belt

The shoulder straps are incredibly lightweight, flexible and breathable. They don’t chafe, they don’t hold any sweat and they distribute the weight really well. I was surprised with the hip belt though. I’ve found it really difficult to find a small day pack with a substantial hip belt (they all seem to be tiny straps that dig in and don’t take very much weight at all). This pack, however, has a hip belt that’s a bit more substantial. It still doesn’t get in the way if you’re scrambling, and they sit really well on your hips making any weight you have in there feel really light (I honestly forgot I had the pack on half the time).

So all of these aspects together result in a pack that is incredibly supportive because it hugs the contours of your body, breathable, lightweight and carries any load really really comfortably.

Storage Space

Even though this pack is only 16 litres, Lowe Alpine have absolutely nailed the pocket space. The pack has three mesh pockets on the outside; two on the side that fit a litre bottle in each, and a larger pocket on the front which is perfect for maps and jelly babies. It also has a smaller pocket on the front (just above the mesh pocket) that’ll fit in your phone or sunglasses. Behind the velcro back panel there is also a large hydration compartment with a clip at the top to hold your hydration bladder in place.

The main compartment opens up almost fully in a clam shell style; it’s spacious and simple with plenty of room for all the rest of your bit’s for the day. It also has a small internal zip pocket with a key clip (losing your keys in the bottom of your pack is the WORST after a long day of trekking). There are also two small pockets on the hip belts which will fit your headtorch or a few energy gels.

Another cool feature to the pack are Lowe Alpines multi-lock straps on the front of the bag. They are compatible with Ice axes, walking poles and helmets (if your use the chin strap).


In My Opinion

The Good

I was amazed by the bag as a whole. It was light, flexible and is far more versatile and technical than other packs in this kind of literage. Lowe Alpine also haven’t priced themselves out of the market with these packs, so you can get a much more diverse pack for not a great deal more money.

An added bonus it that Lowe Alpines marketing for the new packs feature a lot of SUPER cool, athletic females just doing their thing. That’s what I like to see!

The Bad

The colour choices are predictable –  Pinkie/purple, blue and black for the ladies (of course). Common guys - I thought we were past this! It does feel like having to choose the best out of a bad colour palette… “I mean, black goes with everything.. right?”.

The Ugly

This is something I’ve seen quite a lot in other packs and occasionally technical jackets – The womens version will have fewer features or pockets than the mens, and will still be the same price. With these packs we have the same issue. Don’t worry, the features are all the same. We do still have the same amount of pockets – however the mens equivalent packs have 2 extra litres of storage space for the same price point (E.g. 16 litres for the women and 18 litres for the mens equivalent pack).

Like I said, it isn’t unique to this pack so try not to let it cloud your judgement, because it is absolutely gorgeous.


*Side Note* We had to carry Millie across Crib Goch on day 4 and she fitted into Jamie’s pack (along with a few other bits) pretty perfectly!

I think that’s about it for the new Aeon. I hope I’ve managed to get across just how excited I was about this pack (I plan on permanently adding this to my kit pool before the depths of winter so I can test it in the REALLY cold conditions).

Thanks Guys!

  • Lowe Alpine Mens Aeon 35 Anthracite Review by Alasdair,  On 02/06/2018 10:14:23

    Bought this as a replacement for my venerable 30+ year old Berghaus day pack and tried it out last weekend on some of the Perthshire Munros. Its an excellent design with lots of well-thought-out details and good strong construction. The low-profile harness really does work as claimed, no soreness across the collarbones at the end of the day. Great close fit from the flexible back and contoured hip belt. This size is about right for year-round hillwalking - any smaller and I think youd struggle to pack all your Winter gear, while for Summer use the compression straps work well to stabilise a smaller load. Very pleased with my purchase, and the great service from Trekitt.
  • Lowe Alpine Mens Aeon 35 Anthracite Review by Kevin,  On 23/06/2018 10:43:20

    Bought the Aeon 35 to replace an ageing OMM Jirishanca. I was unsure at first about the slim harness until I actually tried it for the first time - amazingly comfortable, spreading the weight evenly and perfectly balanced with the hip belt. Almost perfect daysac which will also serve for one night wild camps. Almost perfect? well, I would have liked to see a couple of features from the Airzone Pro included - the side access zip curve around the top to provide easier access, and a key clip inside the outside top pocket to attach headtorch and other looseable items. Definitely recommended and maybe even a game changer for Lowe Alpine
