About Montane Backpacks

Montane’s garments and pack designs have supported ventures to the North
Pole, scientific work in the Arctic as well as countless expeditions to mountain
Ten years ago Montane was one of the first clothing companies to acknowledge eVent
fabric. This fabric was revolutionary in its levels of breathability, rain shell
performance and the reduction in weight. It made sense that adventure and travel was made
easier when weight was reduced across the board. By reducing weight and pack size
of the outdoor clothing, the design of the Montane pack was altered; thereby requiring
less energy when carrying clothes, and more room available for food and equipment.
It was this type of thinking that enhanced pack design.
The Montane 25-50L backpacks are suitable for many outdoor adventurers including backpacking, climbing and hiking. These packs
range from Cobra 25, a multi use super light pack for outdoor mountain hikes,
to the Montane Torque 40 Pack, a specialist pack for alpine climbing. Both packs
are constructed from the durable Raptor TL, reinforced with Raptor UTL base fabric
with back pad, shoulder straps and hip fins made from Contact mesh. These fabrics
are made from the best in light and durable materials. The difference resides
in their capacity and the ability to handle heavy climbing equipment. Montane
knows how to design a pack that excels in the right situation.
Montane designs larger capacity backpacks for ultra distance trail touring to larger
and tougher kit bags. These Montane 50-65L Packs are there for the long distance
traveler who needs to carry more for longer while traveling further. The Montane
Grand Tour 55 Pack is a great pack and designed for long treks like the Pacific
Crest and the Appalachian trails and makes for the perfect camping bag. The Grand is constructed with the same materials
as the smaller capacity bags and afford great comfort through its exceptional
light feel. The strong ‘VertErgo Tour’ back system can be adjusted
to an individual to optimize the support for a heavy load over a long period of
time. Montane knows how to provide the best in comfort from back pads that feature
channels that wick sweat and rain from the body to a pre-curved horizontal bar
across the top of the back that provides a structure for top tension straps. This
is shaped so it does not interfere with head movement, that little touch allows
a long trek to be more enjoyable.
Montane has the reputation of quality because they know what it is to be out there
under all conditions for all types of endeavors. The range of backpacks covers
the day hiker to the alpine climber to the ultra endurance trail runner.
