Contoured Shoulder Straps
The Backpack has laser cut shoulder straps that conform to your neck and under your arms. The 5mm EVA foam core and a 3mm spacer mesh mean the straps will sit comfortably even when the pack is loaded, and the laser cut panel holding the sternum strap provides a convenient space to attach accessories.
Stretchy Side Pockets
The side pockets are made from durable Ultra200 Mesh. They’re stretchy and sturdy enough to stash a bottle, banana or flask of coffee and they’re angled toward the wearer for easier access during use.
Zipped Front Pocket
The zipped front pocket gives you a separate secure space for keeping small items, and a rain flap provides an additional shield over the water resistant YKK zip.
Quick Stash Pocket
You can stash items behind the front pocket for quick access. This space is ideal to keep a few snacks separate from your gear, and it’s a handy place to stuff the wrappers when you’re done.
High Volume Main Compartment
The main compartment is the star of the show. It’s approximately 20L, which is enough space for your workday items, a day in the outdoors or, if you go ultralight and strap some gear to the exterior, an overnight trip to a hut or bivvy spot.
Roll Top Closure
The Backpack utilises roll top technology from our popular Hightop bumbag. Roll top bags are easy to use, great at keeping out the elements and, because they roll down onto the contents of the pack, they can secure a variety of loads. The unique hook and loop closure seals off the top, then you simply roll it down and secure it with the 25mm strap and aluminium hook buckle.
Lashing Attachment Points
Laser cut lashing points on the bottom and sides of the bag allow you to strap on bulky extras, a rain jacket or a dry bag if you’re going for a big adventure.
Removable Hip Strap
The hip strap can be attached for added stability when heading out on the trail, or detached to give a sleek look for zipping round the city.
Optional Deluxe Hip Strap
An optional larger hip strap can be purchased and installed for using with larger weights or more active use such as mountain biking or running. The strap slips through the bottom of the back panel and provides extra support and padding.
Adjustable Sternum Strap
We think a sternum strap is a must on a backpack, especially if you plan on doing any running with the Backpack. This one can be placed in various positions up and down the shoulder straps to find the fit that’s right for you, and it’s removable when you don't want it.
EVA Padded Back Panel
10mm EVA foam is inserted into the back panel of the bag for maximum comfort. This can be removed to use as a cushion for a cup of tea in the outdoors, or to give you some extra padding when you sleep.
Water Resistant Construction
Although every detail on The Backpack has been designed to resist water entry, it is not seam sealed so water may seep in during prolonged rain. It does a good job of keeping your gear dry, but the roll top design makes it simple to add a liner or dry bag if want to be sure.
Internal Laptop Sleve
A sleeve on the inside of the back panel allows you to store a laptop or other device separate from the other contents in the pack. The bottom of this pocket is raised off the bottom of the pack, minimising the risk of impact damage if the bag is dropped.
