Infinity Corespun Canvas

  • The Backcountry is built from Infinity Corespun canvas, a highly durable poly/cotton fabric. The strength of the fabric is due to the composite yarn: a polyester core with cotton wrapped around it. The composite yarn base provides superior strength and unequalled performance. Once woven the fabric is treated with a wax based polymer for water resistance, anti-bacteria protection and UV stability.

Moto Active Harness System

The Moto Active Harness System provides load bearing comfort for mid to high volume packs.

  • Contoured Shoulder Straps. Shoulder straps map the curves of your torso and provide stability and comfort on the longest of walks
  • Dual Vertical & Single Horizontal Hollow Core Stays. Weight is transferred directly to the hip-belt via two hollow-core aluminium stays. Hollow-core stays are 20% lighter and 25% stronger than previously used extruded aluminium stays
  • Multilayer Foam Hip Belt. Moto Active contoured hip-belt with 8 layer construction: open and closed cell foams, HTPE sheet and highly durable Cordura Nylon.
  • V-Ridge Foam. Stay cooler with the ventilated, non-moisture-absorbing, V-Ridge Foam back panel
  • Single Point Adjustment. Adjust the back length with one simple change

Versatile packing and easy-access pockets

  • The Backcountry is a dual compartment pack with access via the top and base. Inside is a divider that can be zipped open to make a large single compartment.
  • On the sides of the pack are pleated canvas bottle pockets that are easily accessed even while wearing the pack.

Cordura Nylon reinforcement

  • The base of the Backcountry Backpack is a dual layer consisting of Infinity Corespun Canvas inside and 980 denier Cordura Nylon outside. Cordura Nylon is a highly abrasion resistant fabric.

Canvas bound seams

  • The Backcountry Pack is now more water resistant than ever thanks to Canvas binding on the seams.

Water Bladder Compatible

  • As with almost all Mont backpacks, the Backcountry Pack is water bladder compatible. There is a bladder pocket inside the main compartment and a bladder hose port above the backpanel that leads the hose to loops on either shoulder strap.
