Men's or women's backpacks? how to choose the mountain backpack that suits you?
In the past, our team of engineers, made up of hiking enthusiasts, designed backpacks based on gender.
Now, backpacks are designed based on your size, rather than your gender.
Why? Because it asked itself the following question: is there a real morphological difference between men and women ?
In terms of the skeleton, yes. But beyond that, there are different builds, different muscle masses and different types of fat, which are not specific to women or men. After usage tests, it emerged that the most important thing in finding the backpack that best suits each hiker is the back height.
More than gender issues (hips, chest, etc.), it’s your height, your stature that matters. A short person feels better with a bag whose back isn’t too big, and a tall person with a larger back.
Having made this observation, it seemed obvious to offer our mountain walking backpacks in two sizes: A size S for hikers under 1.70m tall. And a size L for those who are more than 1.70m tall. Here's a tip if you are between 1.65m and 1.75m tall: make sure you try on the backpack before buying it. Depending on the length of your legs or your back, you will need to choose between the two sizes.
