The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Slim Mac 80 by Bach, is a backpack equipped with the MAD carrying system, one of the most comfortable of the Swiss brand for heavy loads. Offering great carrying comfort, this system is equipped with a back plate made of HDPE (high density polyethylene), combined with two aluminium rails, placed over the entire height of the backpack, which contribute to the support and rigidity of the whole. The back, waist and shoulder straps are fitted with layers of EVA foam for optimum comfort.
Robust and durable, this reinforced backpack has been designed for all expeditions. Designed to withstand carrying heavy loads and abrasion of the ground, it remains reliable in all circumstances. For this, it has been made of Cordura 500D on the exposed parts, which gives it a good ratio between resistance to abrasion and lightness. The less exposed areas are made of Cordura 420D RS, a fabric that combines tensile strength and lighter weight. The YKK zippers, nylon straps and buckles have also been selected by the brand for their resistance. The belt is removable to prevent it from being a nuisance when transported in the hold of an aircraft, the roof of a 4x4, etc...
Access to the storage space is easy and can be accessed from the top in the classic way, but also thanks to the large front opening. It can be opened quickly and easily over almost the entire height of the backpack. There is also a third opening at the bottom for access to a partitionable section. The top flap is removable and has two large zipped pockets. A third zipped pocket is located on the front part of the Slim Mac 80 and two Cordura side pockets are located on each side of the backpack.
The volume of the Slim Mac 80 backpack is composed of :
- Two outside pockets on the top of the flap, zipped closure.
- One inside pocket on the bottom of the flap, zipped fastening.
- A large main volume accessible from the top, drawcord closing, and front zipped closing.
- Separate lower compartment (removable partition) accessible from below, zipped closure.
- One front pocket, zip closure.
- Two side pockets with drawcord.
The top of the backpack has an extension for a use with its maximum volume.
