The opinion of Aventure Nordique

The Journeyman 48 backpack from the Swiss brand Bach is designed for touring, trekking and traveling. Its robustness and quality of manufacture make it a reliable and durable backpack. It has been made of Cordura 500D on the parts exposed to friction in order to give it a good compromise between abrasion resistance and lightness. The less exposed parts are made of Cordura 420D RS, which offers tensile strength and lighter weight. YKK zippers, nylon straps and buckles have also been selected by the brand for their strength. The belt is removable to prevent it from becoming a nuisance when transported in the hold of an aircraft, the roof of a 4x4, etc...

The Journeyman 48 is designed to be comfortable up to a load of 18 kg. For this purpose, its back frame is equipped with Bach's Shield Pro system. It consists of a taut net and open-pored foam for ventilation and comfort, as well as an HDPE (high-density polyethylene) back plate. A curved aluminium rail, placed over the entire height of the backpack, ensures support and rigidity. The shoulder straps and belt are made of thick layers of EVA foam.

Access to the main volume is from the top and the front. A large zipped front opening allows access to the entire main compartment, just like a travel bag. It also features four other small zipped pockets and three mesh pockets. It has baton holders, a compartment for a water pocket and a rain cover is provided.

The volume of the Journeyman 48 backpack consists of :

  • An outside pocket on the top of the flap, with zip closure.

  • An inside pocket on the bottom of the flap, with zip fastening.

  • A large main volume accessible from the top, closing by drawcord, and front zip.

  • A small front pocket, zipped closing.

  • A mesh front pocket.

  • Two side pockets in mesh.

  • One waist pocket, zipped closure.

  • One internal compartment for the water pocket.

The top of the backpack has an extension for a use with its maximum volume.
