Ortovox Backpacks & Bags Peak 35L Daypack - Men's Orange 4625100004. This backpack is very robust thanks to the use of the extremely tear and abrasion resistant material Nylon 420D Manstar. The broad padded shoulder and hip straps distribute the weight of the load evenly between the shoulders and hips ensuring a high level of wear comfort. A circumferential front zipper enables direct access to the main compartment. The PEAK 35 also scores highly with a separate safety compartment attachment options for rope ice axe and crampons as well as a separate map compartment and a hip pocket. This backpack is also hydration system compatible and includes images of Alpine emergency signals.BACK SYSTEM: SWISSWOOL FULL CONTACTWhat makes this backpack so special is the back system made from pressed Swiss wool. As with the clothing mountaineers benefit from the wools unique moisture and microclimate management making it feel comfortable and dry on the back. Thanks to the wool the back of the backpack can absorb almost 30 times more moisture than a comparable back made from foam and is almost 7 percent more breathable. A further advantage of wool is that the surface of the back system dries faster. The full contact back fits closely to the body and offers optimum weight distribution. The back design consists of two aluminum struts that offer high stability and guarantee great comfort even when the backpack is heavily loaded.
