Simple, robust trekking backpack for daytrips and shorter overnight treks, all year round. Made from G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco in recycled polyester and organic cotton. The durable fabric gives a timeless impression and can be waxed with Greenland Wax for extra resistance against moisture and wear.
The carrying system has a fixed back length and is stable and substantial for the backpack’s size. The hipbelt and shoulder straps are adapted to fit a man’s body type and the hipbelt has two pockets for sun screen, snacks or the like.
The backpack is top loaded and has a spacious main compartment with snow lock. The top lid can be raised and has two pockets. There is an attachment loop for an ice axe and trekking poles and the backpack is hydration system compatible. A zippered pocket at the front holds rain gear and the like, and there are two side pockets. Compression straps on the sides stabilise the contents of the pack when it is not fully loaded. Whistle on the chest strap and base made from durable polyamide. A rain cover in visible safety colour UN Blue is included.
Fjällräven's Kaipak 38 Litre Rucksack is a super durable and supportive pack with a decent feature set for big day treks or overnighters. Designed to comfortably carry heavy loads.
It's constructed from G-1000 Eco which is Fjällräven's own hardwearing and versatile fabric, with a 500D waterproof nylon base for extra resistance to weather when placing the pack on the ground. The dense weave of the G-1000 Eco fabric is made from polyester, cotton and is impregnated with Greenland Wax. This combination makes the pack extremely durable, very well ventilated and also wind and water resistant. As the fabric is not fully waterproof it comes with a raincover for persistent rain.
As well as the main top loading compartment there is a large zipped pocket on the front of the pack. The adjustable top lid has a small inside pocket and a larger outer pocket. 2 side mesh pockets are perfect for water bottles and the pack is hydration system compatible. The padded hip belt has pockets which are ideal for those items you want to access when on the move.
