Versametric Proof / Trekking Backpack

Versametric Proof

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

Versametric Proof

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

Less effort – more power reserves – that’s what the Versametric System stands for. While the weight of a conventional backpack bears down on the hips and has to be moved with every step, in the Versametric System these hip movements are absorbed by the hipbelt, centrally transmitted to the middle and then distributed to save strength and energy. The pack sack itself remains stationary. In a backpack loaded with 25 kg, the Versametric System clearly minimizes energy input by about 20 percent, enhancing performance and sparing one’s joints. The Versametric System is the lightest pendulum construction with a very high stability on the market.
