The second heaviest on test and one of the slowest to pack away into the supplied canvas carryall, which we must say is the most durable we have come across. The Benchmark offers superb value for money and the fleece lining helps the bag retain a lot of heat internally but can also be switched around to offer the smooth peachskin layer in a matter of minutes.
Constructed from several reversible layers, this bag can be utilised all year round, ensuring you can tailor it to your requirements without having to buy another for the warmer seasons. The breathable and waterproof outer is another solid idea from Avid.
