It has gained the titles of "indestructible" and "custom-made." That's how it will stay, although the popular trekking backpack is now up to 15% lighter. The new, ergonomically shaped hip fins flow into the back construction and literally embrace the body. This allows even heavier loads to be carried easily and close to the body's centre of gravity. In addition, nature loving hikers and trekkers can store everything they need, from their tent to provisions. On top of that the Aircontact, which is also a great travel backpack, lets you use its lid as a separate, detachable small backpack.

AIRCONTACT SYSTEM BACK SYSTEM
The ergonomic head moulding provides perfect head clearance (from Aircontact 50+10 SL).
The light way to carry heavy weight: The Aircontact system eprfectly adapts to the wearer's back and holds the load close to the body's centre of gravity. With every movement, a pump effect circulates air through the breathable padding with special ventilating hollow chamber. The result: 15% less perspiration than with other body-contour packs.
Additional load adjustment straps on the shoulder straps allow optimal positioning of the backpack. These are easily positioned on the shoulder straps using a "Triglide" buckle. Aircontact models above 50+10 SL sizes also have two different fixing points, depending on the back length setting, in order top optimize the load adjustor strap angle.
The proven VariQuick system guarantees easy adjustment to any back length. The new back panel construction creates a big contact surface making it even more compact and comfortable to carry.
The anatomic profiled X-frame transfers weight on the hips. The crossed aluminium stays create a flexible, yet stable frame that follows your body movements.
