Care

Cleaning Your Pack

You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush. Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap, Nikwax Tech Wash or Lux Soap Flakes. Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

After washing we recommend reproofing our AzTec® packs with Nikwax Cotton Proof.

Zips
The manufacturer of our zips, YKK, intentionally makes the zip slider from a soft alloy. This is so the slider (which is relatively easy to replace) wears out before the zip teeth (which are very difficult to replace). So, when zips are used extensively and in dusty or dirty environments the inner parts of the slider are worn away to a point where they cannot bring the teeth of the zip together effectively.

To get the worn sliders working until they can be replaced you can use a pair of pliers to gently squeeze the sides of the slider together. This should allow the slider to bring the zip teeth together. Don't use too much force because you can jam the slider.

Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible. Wash them with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics. This stops the dirt and dust from wearing away the insides of the sliders.

Harness

Active™ load-carrying system

Medium load carrying for action-packed, high-energy activities.

 

The benefits

•    Enables you to carry a medium load (up to 15kg) in comfort

•    Enables you to move efficiently, quickly and with ease when engaged in highly mobile activities

•    Helps you to balance when negotiating challenging terrain

•    Gives you increased enjoyment of your outdoor experience

 

Active™ theory

Action fit

A narrow fit enables you to use a full range of movement without being hindered by your load. A snug and close fit holds the load close to your body so it synchronises with your movements. This helps you balance and move fast, efficiently and with ease when negotiating difficult terrain. The lightweight, low-bulk and easy-to-adjust design keeps weight to a minimum without compromising performance.

 

Internal frame bars

Vertical frame bars transfer the load weight from your spine and shoulders down to your hips where it can be carried more efficiently and without affecting your range of movement.

 

Hipbelt

The strong and flexible hipbelt with diagonal attachment stabilises the load while enabling it to synchronise with your body movements.

 

Shoulder pad attachment

A unique shoulder pad attachment enables a full range of movement in your shoulder area while allowing the load to remain stable on your hips.

 

Back panel and lumbar pad

The fully padded back panel provides exceptional stability and a more positive carry. The lumbar pad is contoured to fit the curve of your lower back to provide additional support. Contact™ fabric enhances breathability, comfort and grip.

 

Side stabiliser straps

Hip-fin stabiliser straps cinch the load close to your body to reduce lateral sway when load balance is critical.

 

AirFlo™ load-carrying system

Comfortable lightweight load carrying with enhanced ventilation

 

The benefits

•    Enables you to carry a light load (up to 15kg) in comfort.

•    Reduces perspiration when working hard or in hot conditions.

•    Provides synergy between you and your load.

 

AirMesh™

The configuration of the contact points enables air to channel around your back, maximising ventilation. Ventilation is further enhanced with the use of AirMesh™ fabric. AirMesh™ fabric works by wicking perspiration away from your skin. This keeps you drier and more comfortable when you are working hard or in hot conditions. AirMesh™ fabric also provides valuable padding from your load.

 

Back panel

Weight transfer from the shoulders to the hip region is achieved through twin aluminium stays. The stays allow the back panel to be shaped to suit individual needs, optimising spinal comfort. The 25l and 35l AirFlo™ harnesses have a HDPE framesheet instead of aluminium stays.

 

Hipbelt

The strong and flexible hipbelt with hip-fin stabiliser straps cinches the load close to your body to reduce lateral sway when balance is critical. A double adjusting hipbelt buckle tightens to give a precise fit. The 25l AirFlo™ harnesses have a lightweight padded hipbelt.

 

AirSupply 08™ load-carrying system

Trusted load carrying for day-long adventures

The benefits –

 

•    Enables you to carry a light load (up to 10kg) in comfort

•    Helps keep you drier from perspiration in challenging places or in hot conditions

•    Provides synergy between you and your load

•    Gives you increased enjoyment during your outdoor experience

 

AirSupply 08™ theory

Stable fit

In order to maximise the carrying stability of the pack, the AirSupply? 08 harness features a full lumbar pad and a close fitting hip belt to help you control your load in variable terrain.

 

AirMesh

The configuration of the back panel center channel and recessed lateral padding helps move air around your back. Ventilation is further enhanced with the use of AirMesh? fabric in the back panel and hip belt. AirMesh? fabric works by wicking perspiration away from your skin. This keeps you drier and more comfortable when you are working hard or in hot conditions. AirMesh? fabric also provides valuable padding from your load.

 

Back panel

Weight transfer from the shoulders to the hip region is achieved through a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) framesheet.

 

Hipbelt

The lightweight and flexible hipbelt consist of hip-fin stabiliser straps which cinch the load close to your body to reduce lateral sway when balance is critical. A double adjusting hipbelt buckle tightens to give a precise fit.

 

Dynamic™ load-carrying system

Freedom to move when carrying medium to heavy loads over uneven terrain.

 

The benefits

•    Enables you to carry a medium to heavy pack (up to 20kg) in comfort

•    Enables you to move and balance easily when moving over uneven terrain

•    Reduces the risk of injuring yourself as a result of carrying a heavy pack

•    Gives you increased enjoyment of your outdoor experience

 

Dynamic™ theory

With each step you take you lean backwards and forwards and side to side. This changes the shape and length of your spine, torso and muscles. If your harness does not flow with your body then you will struggle to move easily and will find it difficult to balance. This increases the risk of skin pressure, chafing and muscle and skeletal strains. Your journey will also not be enjoyable as you feel every aspect of your pack moving against your body.

We have designed a pack harness that synchronises with the complex movements of your body, thereby providing greater comfort.

The Dynamic™ Harness performs best carrying medium to heavy loads (up to 20kg) over difficult terrain where harness flexibility and freedom to move are essential.

 

Dynamic Pivoting Hipbelt™

The Dynamic™ Pivot provides maximum freedom to move by allowing your hips to work independently from your shoulders, back and the pack. Laminations of dense, energy-absorbent EVA foam distribute the weight from the base of your spine (lower lumbar) over your entire hip area and provide firm yet responsive support.

 

Internal frame bars and back extension

Contoured internal vertical frame bars distribute the load weight from your shoulders and spine down to your lower lumbar area. They also give the sac form and rigidity. The back extension changes shape as you move by stretching and compressing with your spine. This prevents the hipbelt from riding up off your hips.

 

Lumbar pad

The lumbar pad provides back support and encourages you to stand upright, while helping the harness sit comfortably in the curve of your lower back. Highly breathable AirMesh™ fabric reduces the build-up of perspiration against your back, keeping you dry and comfortable.

 

Side stabiliser straps

Side stabiliser straps allow you to tighten the sac to the harness to achieve greater load stability when balance is critical.

 

Helium™ load-carrying system

Lightweight load carrying in the outdoors

 

The benefits

•    Enables you to carry a light load (up to 10kg) in comfort.

•    Provides groundbreaking load carrying comfort combined with low weight.

•    Enables you to move efficiently, quickly and with high speed when engaged in highly mobile activities.

 

AirMesh™

AirMesh™ fabric on the harness works by wicking perspiration away from your skin. This keeps you drier and more comfortable when you are working hard or in hot conditions. AirMesh™ fabric also provides valuable padding from your load.

 

Back panel

A specially lightened high-density polyethylene (HDPE) framesheet transfers weight from the shoulders to the hip region while still providing resistance to kinking.

 

Hipbelt

The lightweight, flexible padded hipbelt with hip-fin contours to your body to improve comfort. A double adjusting hipbelt buckle tightens to give a precise fit while an integrated mesh pocket on the hip belt ensures essentials are kept close at hand.

 

Liberator™ Freeload™ load-carrying system

For unrestricted freedom of movement and multi-day trekking the new Liberator™ load-carrying system presents a breakthrough in load-carrying technology, with the Freeload™ transfer system.

 

The benefits

•    Enables you to carry a load in line with your natural body movement

•    Relieves pressure from your muscle groups, creating freedom of movement

•    Supports you to carry heavy loads over rough terrain with remarkable stability

 

Elevator Pivot Point

We've moved the point of movement away from the base of your spine to the point of natural flex in your back. This relieves pressure from your gluteus muscles (your bum!) and puts the hip belt in line with your natural hip movement.

 

Liberator™ Hip Belt

The Liberator™ hip belt works with the Elevator pivot point to create freedom to move more efficiently and let your muscles work without restriction. Positioned higher, thanks to the Elevator pivot pint, the Liberator™ hip belt avoids contact with your gluteus maximus muscles while still maintaining a firm grip on your pelvic girdle. This means the Liberator™ hip belt grips your skeleton in a way that provides stability and doesn't restrict movement.

 

Freeload™ Transfer System and Rods

You can tailor the load flex and transfer exactly to your liking. The rods can be positioned in a number of different ways. For serious scrambling, just leave the rods in their neutral position and let the hip belt move freely. When back on solid ground, crank the rods up into full position and maximum load transfer will be achieved - and your shoulders will breathe a sigh of relief.
