A core piece of technology, the backsystem is the engine of a pack, driving performance.

 The re-engineered AirScape™ backpanel sets a new standard in pack stability and load distribution. The injection moulded backpanel ensures stabilisation while the foam ridges perfectly contour your spine to ensure comfort, fit and ventilation.

 The AirScape™ backpanel is ideal for carrying heavy loads while backpacking when the trail gets technical. AirScape™ keeps the load weight close to the body which ensures stability and comfort.

"In the harshest of conditions, the backpack you are using makes all the difference to your performance, comfort and safety. The new Ariel with the AirScape™ backsystem ticks every box for backpacking excellence."

“Mountaineering is about focus. When I am on an expedition I only think about the challenge ahead and trust my training, my team and my equipment. AirScape™ technology is part of that trust.
It ensures my pack and equipment feel stable and comfortable; leaving me to make the impossible, possible."
