The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Specialist 75 from the Swiss brand Bach, is a backpack for trekking, travelling and expeditions. It is sturdy, designed to be used in difficult conditions. The parts, such as the belt clips, have been tested down to -40°C. This backpack remains comfortable up to a load of 35 kg, but is capable of carrying much higher loads. Its robustness and carrying comfort for heavy loads are its two main assets.
It is made with a 1000D Cordura fabric on the parts exposed to friction, making it extremely resistant to abrasion and tearing. The unexposed parts are made of Cordura 420D CDR NH Dobby offering a good weight to strength ratio. The YKK zippers, nylon straps and buckles have also been chosen for their high strength to ensure a reliable backpack in all conditions of use.
The back frame of the Specialist 75 is composed of the Bach Expedition suspension system, which offers a very high level of carrying comfort. The back consists of a taut net and open-pored foam for good ventilation and optimum comfort, as well as a back plate made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene). Two curved aluminium rails, placed over the entire height of the backpack, ensure that the backpack is held in place. The height of the back is adjustable to suit everyone. The belt is made of several layers of EVA foam, an open-pored PU foam and is stiffened with an HDPE panel.
The volume of the Specialist 75 backpack consists of :
- An external pocket on the top of the flap, zipped closure.
- An inside pocket on the bottom of the flap, zipped closure.
- A large main volume accessible from the top, closing by drawcord, and front zipped closure.
- Separate lower compartment (removable partition) accessible from below, zipped closure.
- One front mesh pocket, zip closure.
- Two side mesh pockets.
- One belt pocket in mesh.
- One internal compartment for the water pocket.
The top of the backpack has an extension for a use with its maximum volume.
