Spine / Backpack carrying system

Spine

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

Spine

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

The result of an in-depth biomechanical analysis, the patent-pending SPINE carrying system is a simple and elegant solution to a complex technical problem. Anchoring the pack at the center of the torso, a helix-shaped spring steel frame allows hips and shoulders to move naturally and completely independently.
Pivoting hip belts are common in the industry, but the SPINE system also incorporates a much more pronounced movement; the twisting of the torso. SPINE lets the body bend, stretch and twist freely in an unparalleled freedom of motion.
The backpack is available in 2 volumes (55 and 70 l) and in 3 torso lengths to fit a wide range of users
