Comfortable, functional and durable backpack

I took this backpack for a hike this weekend. Very comfortable with plenty of adjustment options. I love the free air flow on the back. Durable construction and materials. A very nice backpack honestly. Supposedly made for women, it still works very well with both genders. The only thing I think could have been better is the bottle holder. Quite nice to have a bottle holder this being said. However, it works best with a certain shape of bottles. I had a different type of bottle and it got lost when walking. I feel like losing your bottle though the bottom of the bottle holder should not be possible, regardless of the type of bottle you use.

Very practical and functional

Opinion

Solid backpack, lots of pockets. A plus is the rain cover included with the backpack.

Excellent

The price-quality ratio is exactly what I needed

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

After having had a unisex Ferrino 60lt for a lifetime, getting a backpack designed for women is a world apart. The comfort of wearing it is incomparable. The only thing I would have eliminated is some tensioning system. Too many adjustments and very long bands that I will definitely have to cut.

A lightweight backpack

The bag is very practical but not comfortable enough at the belt level, the metal support rod hurts, difficult to position on the back because there are few explanations on how to put it on properly and another problem it makes noise when I walk precisely in terms of support with this rod, during a hike I have the impression of hearing only that. Damage . Otherwise on the practical side very good with its opening and its multi-pockets

top

* lots of storage * huge capacity * well adjustable for the back

Used for 4-5 day treks

The bag itself is great, lots of pockets, very practical, light... on the other hand the big downside is the discomfort I had with the belly strap (blue/irritation) despite different settings, I had to adjust it bring it back impossible to use it.. too bad it's a beautiful product

perfectly worked

A very practical and good-looking hiking bag

Buy on sale, lightweight and convenient

The waterproof cover is relatively weak and it was cut after just one use. But the overall carrying flexibility is very good

Capacity

Air design

As with the MT900 UL line, the MT500 AIR range has a ventilated back structure with mesh fabric (net fabric) that helps the back to breathe and dries quickly. Rigidity is guaranteed by a reinforced frame. The back is adjustable with a release strap that’s easy and quick to use.

Recommended carry weight

According to the project for which this backpack was designed, we recommend you don’t load it above 15 kg. Then you can benefit from all its features. Moreover, it’s not recommended to carry a load greater than 20-25% of your own weight and put too much pressure on your back.

How to pack a backpack?

Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Store your clothing around it. A groundsheet or tent can be placed under the flap or under the bag if there isn't room inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder can be placed in the compartment provided down the back.

How to use the multi-use straps?

The new range of MT500 AIR and MT900 UL bags has two straps with open aluminium buckles (on the lower part of the bag). These straps let you hook on a tent or mattress under the bag or on the barrel. If not in use, these straps can be stored (by pushing them inside) in the hidden pocket intended for this. The can also be detached and used elsewhere with the lark's head knot buckle.

Female body shape

Our women's models are adapted to the female shape (chest and hips). The shoulder straps are more open and the waist fitted higher for greater comfort and freedom of movement.

Product testing

All our backpacks undergo field tests by users who are representative of our target market under similar conditions to those you will encounter.
