  • Care
    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 and Nikwax Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
    Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible
    Wash zip teeth with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics

Highly recommended backpack for multi-day treks
Excellent backpack; durable, comfortable and great design to carry all you need well organised for multi-day treks.

Worth buying
Not a bad pack. Very durable material and great comfort. Only downside to it for me is the zip on the bottom pouch is very difficult to open and close, I think it is due to the curved line than it follows.
Other than that I’m really enjoying this pack.

Solid, Strong Pack
I’ve owned this pack since mid 2017 and it’s been on several multi-day tramping trips and countless short hikes to wear it in and condition my back.


Size - big enough to carry heaps of gear if you need it,

Waterproof, quick access pockets on top and side are welcome.


Comfort - not the most comfortable pack to be honest. I got mine sized correctly by the store but it just isn’t that comfortable compared with my brothers Macpac Torlesse or other brands I’ve tried.

Hip Belt - would be great if hip belt had pockets/pouches to access items while wearing the pack. Obviously I knew it didn’t have this when I bought it but I didn’t realise what an annoyance it would be until I started using the pack without quick access pockets.

All in all a good (but not great), reliable pack.

Durable, comfortable, versatile
A tough pack with plenty of space and well-designed compartmentalization. The Liberator harness system, once fitted correctly, distributes weight in such as a way to make long-hikes comfortable. A great product and excellent value for money.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Liam,

The pack doesn't have a specific part designed to secure crampons, but you should be able to attach them either the side of the pack or the back.

Kind regards,
The Macpac team
