Ortovox PEAK 42 S Backpack
Robust and functional Alpine Hiking Backpack for Short Back Mountaineers
The PEAK 42 S is a backpack for alpine activities that has been specially adapted to the shorter's backdrops - the name "s" means short. The dorsal system of this backpack is significantly shorter.
This alpine hiking backpack is very robust thanks to the use of an extremely resistant and abrasion material, the 420D Manstar nylon. The wide shoulder and padded hip straps distribute the weight of the load homogeneously between the shoulders and the hips, thus ensuring a great comfort of use. A circumferential front zipper provides direct access to the main compartment. The PEAK 42 S also has a separate security compartment, rope fastening options, the ice ax and the crampons, as well as a separate compartment for cards and a pocket on the hip. This backpack is also compatible with hydration systems and includes alpine emergency signals.
Dorsal System: Swisswool Full Contact
Which makes this backpack so special, it is the dorsal system made of Swiss wool pressed. As for clothing, mountaineers benefit from the unique moisture and microclimate management of wool, which makes it feel comfortable and dry on the back. Thanks to the wool, the back of the backpack can absorb almost 30 times more moisture than a comparable foam back and is almost 7% more breathable. Another advantage of wool is that the surface of the dorsal system dries faster. The total contact back adapts perfectly to the body and offers optimal weight distribution. DOS design consists of two aluminum amounts that provide great stability and guarantee great comfort, even when the backpack is heavily loaded.
