They are still extremely durable, but now come in a more modern, slim look. And they are more comfortable, too, with their new flexible Active Fit shoulder straps and the revised hip wing construction.

AIRCONTACT SYSTEM BACK SYSTEM
DESIGNED FOR LIGHTENING HEAVY LOADS: perfect load transfer to the hip belt due to the adjustable and flexible multi-chamber aluminium X-frame. Offering the perfect fit, it sits close to the back and keeps the load incredibly stable and well-controlled close to the body’s centre of gravity.
EXCELLENT VENTILATION: due to open cell foam technology. With every movement air circulates through the cushions keeping the back ventilated. The result*: 15% less perspiration than with other body-contour packs. (*proven in a field test conducted by Gabriel L.&T. in co-operation with the University of Erlangen/Germany)
THE PERFECT FIT: of the carrying system for different back lengths is guaranteed by the multi-stage Vari Quick adjustment system.
PIVOTING VARIFLEX HIPBELT REDUCES FATIGUE: and with its ergonomic 3D design, shaped by sewing craftsmanship, the load gets evenly distributed without any pressure points.
MAXIMUM COMFORT: pivoting Active Fit shoulder harness adapts individually to the wearer.
