  • The hood and lateral pockets should be filled with small, essential objects, so they can be reached easily. Make sure side pockets have weight evenly distributed.
  • Heavy equipment such as tents, food, cooking utensils should be placed near the back.
  • Average weight, bulky items such as clothing should be placed in the middle of the pack, but to the outside.
  • Soft objects such as sleeping bag and down-filled equipment should be stored in the bottom of the pack.

On difficult terrain, such as mountain trails or during ascents, the bulk of the weight should be placed closer to the body’s centre of gravity; the torso should lean forward to act as a counterbalance and ensure better stability.

On easier terrain such as flat trails, more weight should be pla­ced closer to the shoulders so that your back remains straighter.

HOW TO WASH OUR PRODUCTS

WASHING

Use a large bowl or washtub, making sure you have sufficient space to ensure you can wash all the pockets and sections of the product easily. Use warm water (not hot, because it could cause the colors to fade). Then using a soft brush (for example a shoe brush), apply some neutral soap and start to brush. Use an old toothbrush to treat obstinate stains.

Repeat the operation several times and in all directions, changing the water if it becomes too dirty. Repeat procedure until the product is clean. Do not wash with other items because the colors may run.

RINSING & DRYING

All traces of soap or detergent must be eliminated in order to prevent residue being left on the material. Wring out as much water as possible. Pay particular attention to zips, straps and padding in foam rubber when wringing, in order to avoid causing damage. Do not dry in a tumble drier because this could damage the foam rubber and some fabrics. Hang the product to dry, leaving pockets and zips open.

Devi eliminare ogni traccia di sapone o detergente per evitare che restino dei residui sul tessuto.Strizzalo meglio che puoi. Presta particolare attenzione alle cerniere, cinghie e alle imbottiture in gommapiuma quando strizzi il prodotto, in modo da non danneggiarle. Non devi metterlo in asciugatrice perché potresti rovinare le parti in gommapiuma e alcuni tessuti. Appendi il prodotto lasciando le tasche e le cerniere aperte.
