Setting a new standard for comfort
and performance 

A core piece of technology, the backsystem is the engine of a pack, driving performance, comfort, fit and ventilation.

The re-engineered AirScape™ backpanel for the new Aether & Ariel series is injection moulded for stabilisation. A contoured lumbar fits perfectly with the contours of your spine whilst EVA foam cushions and provides airflow channels for ventilation.

Die-cut foam channels lift the pack away from your back allowing air to circulate keeping you comfortable on the trail. 

Die-cut EVA foam channels



A close-to-body fit keeps the packs stable ensuring you can enjoy the rest of your journey in comfort. EVA foam adds extra comfort and shock-absorption. 

A contoured backpanel fits comfortably to the curves of the spine. 




When carrying larger loads the back takes most of the weight of the pack. Having a supportive, close-to-body fit in the backsystem ensures a stable and secure load carry.
