The comfort of a backpack lies in its good balance when walking. Symbium technology consists of a jointed waistband that allows the backpack to adapt to the trekker's movements when walking.
No more balancing effects that tire out the trekker thanks to the SYMBIUM system.
Extendable volume: 50 L + 10 L extension thanks to the bag’s top flap with adjustable height. The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method. we use small balls to fill the main compartment as well as each pocket. The balls are then emptied into a graduated container in order to determine the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of error of just a few %.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we have opted for mass pigmentation called "dope dye" integrating the colour pigments from the initial thread manufacture. This process reduces this backpack’s CO2 emissions by 20% compared to the previous model.
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Store your clothing around it. A groundsheet or tent can be placed under the flap or under the bag if there isn't room inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder can be placed in the compartment provided down the back.
Why are our rain covers grey when some trekkers want them to be brightly coloured?
The grey colour is neutral so uses less dye. We also use a “bi-ton” dyeing process where only one thread in every two is dyed. This dyed yarn is also made from a bulk dyeing process which incorporates the colour pigments from the yarn manufacturing phase onwards.Forclaz is committed to improving the environmental impact of its products through these actions.
Compatible with 2x7 L 1/2 moon storage covers.
