Over the past two years we have tried numerous solutions that have led to this backpack. We realized that even though we were looking for the lightest materials, the material that weighed the most and was most easily worn down was always the front mesh, essential for drying clothes, tarps, bivysacks or tents and having quick access to other gear.
So we decided to make the backpack in a single material (DCF or X-PAC VX07) and laser-cut the backpack entirely out of one fabric for both the mesh and the body.
The backpack weighs:
– 280gr/9.8oz in the Dyneema® Composite Fabric version CT9HK.18 without optionals
– 255gr/9oz in the Dyneema® composite fabric version CT5K.18 without optionals
– 350gr/12.3oz in the X-Pac version VX07 without optionals
The backpack has a capacity of (generous) 35 liters plus external pockets. The two side pockets contain up to two Smart Water bottles, 850ml each, these are also provided with some drain holes for any liquids inside thus allowing the backpack to weigh no more than it already weighs!
The backpack is perfect for day-hikes and long distance hikes, we have also added the load-lifter to bring the upper part of the backpack a bit closer to your back which together with its size make it very stable even without sternum strap and hip-belt.
The rear zip-pocket (optional) is water and splash resistant, large enough to carry wallet, smartphone or snacks and is accessible without having to take off the backpack and without having to stop. It has been designed to reduce as much as possible the pauses during walks and thus reduce travel times on various sections.
The backpack is waterproofed by SEAM SURE by McNett® we have made several attempts at taping but with unsatisfactory results and we have decided, for now, not to use tape in this version. More iterations of this solution will be necessary for us to be satisfied with its durability.
We recommend you don’t try to carry more than 9kg in this pack. If you are thinking that your loads would go above this, do yourself a favor and get a padded backpack with rigid support.
THE BACKPACK IS FULLY HANDMADE IN ITALY
