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 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.

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.

Durable, comfortable, versatile

Warren Saunders, 26/11/17

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.

Solid, Strong Pack

CandiedGold, 24/04/18

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.

Advantages:

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

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

Disadvantages:

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.
