Back Suspension:

Our frame architecture combines a 7005 alloy rod hourglass-shaped frame with 1 horizontal hollow 6001 T6 aluminium stay. This maintains the slim profile when the pack is stuffed full yet the stretch back-panels can auto-mould to your back shape when the hipbelt is done up. Backpanel ventilation is outstanding with a suspended mesh backpanel.

Shoulder Harness:

The Bio-Fit shoulder harness has 2 sizes. It’s made of 3D Mono-mesh which is highly breathable and auto-moulds to the slope of your shoulders. There is no shoulder strap distortion when the Flow-Thru stabilisers are tightened to bring the top of the pack close to your back. Our On-Adjust buckle allows back-length shortening with the pack on to allow a precision fit to a wide range of body sizes. U Flow by interlinked bottom tensioners. 


Pelvic-Form hipbelts come in 4 sizes and micro-adjust in length and angle to allow a perfect match to your pelvic size and shape. Dual-adjust tensioning allows fine-tuning of the upper hipbelt shaping around your waist and the top of your hips. The tension on the Multi-Flow cord which connects the hipbelt to the sides of the pack can be adjusted to vary the proportion of the packs load transferred towards the front of the hipbelt. U Flow via centre pivot and interlinked side stabilisers.
