All environmental aspects of production are evaluated at the screening: water and air emissions, noise levels, energy and material use, as well as working conditions related to dangerous materials. Products that are made from at least 90% bluesign-certified materials are given the "bluesign-approved fabric" label.
Anatomic Alpine suspension system is engineered for alpine use and longer mountaineering tours with greater loads ~ Designed with a lighter anatomic back panel that prevents the load from bulging into your back, significantly improving carrying comfort (panel can be removed when necessary to reduce weight) ~ Two large mesh pads are positioned along the spine to distribute the load evenly over the entire back, while also creating a back channel for superior ventilation
