Durable technical high alpine backpack, 42l.
Product description for Ortovox PEAK 42 S from our collection of Outdoor Sports & Fashion:
The technical and robust high-alpine backpack Peak 42 S by ORTOVOX equippes the mountaineerer perfectly for alpine activities.
The Swisswool back system of the Peak backpacks is unique. Using a highly complicated process ORTOVOX has managed to produce the backs from pressed Swiss wool. In exactly the same way as with the clothing, you benefit from the wool’s perfect moisture and microclimate management, and it therefore feels comfortable and dry on your back. Every backpack back is produced by hand in the Franconian town of Dinkelsbühl. Here they use woolen fleeces that are combined with a punch-hole covering and shaped under 1.5 tons of pressure. Finally, the shape is cut with millimeter accuracy and undergoes quality testing.
Since 1988, ORTOVOVX has used wool in their mountain sports apparel. They have developed a wear comfort system based on the unique functionality of these natural fibres. Using an innovative production process they have now managed to integrate Swiss Wool into the Peak series back system and provide unique comfort to the place where you sweat most: the back. Over two years of development work have gone into Swisswool Full Contact, the new back system used in Peak backpacks. As part of a Master’s thesis, numerous long-term tests carried out both in the field and in the laboratory attested to the functionality of the Swiss wool. During this process, different material mixes in different shapes from diverse pressing processes were tested until a system was found that offers the wearer the best possible comfort and which has proven its longevity.
The wide, padded shoulder and hip straps of the Peak 42 S by ORTOVOX distribute the weight of the load evenly between the shoulders and hips. The circumferential front zipper grants you direct access to the main compartment – the separate safety compartment provides access to emergency equipment in one easy movement. In order to ensure that the backpacks in the Peak series are ready for you to use on the mountain, ORTOVOX has produced them using Nylon 420D Manstar, the most resistant material – extremely tear and abrasion resistant and therefore long-lasting.
