Made for Our backpacker design team created this backpack for travelling the world on foot with complete peace of mind, thanks to its padlockable zip. The suitcase-style opening enables you to access contents and store your bag easily. The built-in rain pocket will protect the bag contents from rain.
Reduced environmental impact thanks to the dope dye process
Mass-dyeing (Dope Dye) involves introducing pigments during manufacturing of the thread and is able to reduce the water-related environmental impact of the dye (significant consumption & pollution). There are environmentally friendly dyes.
This process can reduce the CO2 impact by 40% compared to traditional dyeing methods.
Eco-design of the TRAVEL 100 backpack
In 2019, Émilien, our backpack engineer, selected a fabric for the inside of the backpack using the dope dye process.
As such, the backpack uses 12% less CO2 compared to traditional dying methods.
For this backpack we aim for 100% eco-design. This is why we already have areas for improvement!
In 2020, the outer sides of the backpack will switch to using the dope dye process to reduce its carbon footprint even more. By 2021, 100% of the bag fabric will be dyed using this process.
How to adjust your backpack?
Begin by adjusting the lumbar belt. The bag's weight should sit mainly on your hips.
Then tighten the shoulder straps to bring the bag's weight towards your back.
Attach and tighten the chest strap then tighten the smaller straps above the shoulders so that the back sits perfectly on your back.
Backpack TRAVEL 100 compartments
Suitcase-style wide opening.
A big internal compartment in the bottom of the bag (for shoes or laundry for example).
An inside net pocket and on each side of the main compartment.
A zipped belt pocket (perfect for having your phone to hand)
Water compartment against the back (could also be used for a laptop)
Protect your bag in the rain
The bag comes with a rain pocket waterproof to 2,000 mm (Schmerber)
This is equivalent to a rain shower of 60L per hour per square metre.
We have tested the durability of the parts in our laboratory by replicating intense usage of the loaded bag. Our bag resisted 10,000 drops from 50 cm. The bag was filled to 18 kg
