The Helsport design team set out to create a user-friendly and extremely comfortable backpack with a minimalist aesthetic. Solving all these challenges resulted in four innovative technologies that are currently patent pending.
An important aspect of usability is making it as easy as possible to access things that are often needed. It's even better if you don't even have to take the backpack off. So Helsport has put a lot of energy into making it easier to access essential items while still having the backpack on the shoulders. Pockets on the hip belt are made extra long and large to accommodate important items within reach. Drink bottles can easily be stowed in the side mesh pockets and even trekking poles are easily accessible and stowable whilst moving.
The highly breathable back panel is particularly innovative and equipped with a system that transfers the load from the shoulders to the hips. The back panel can be opened completely for easy access to the main compartment. The roll-top includes an innovative way for fast and easy opening. When closing the roll-top, by design the load will be compressed from the front panel to the back panel, increasing compression and stability of the load.
Top quality materials were chosen like polyamide ripstop coated with carbonated polyurethane on the outside with 3000mm water column throughout the backpack. This results in a waterproof and lightweight pack that does not absorb water. The chosen colors are inspired by the Norwegian landscape.
The Trek Pro backpack series will be available in two different back lengths and the three different sizes 40L, 50L and 60L. The series will be launched in spring/summer 2023 in three colors.
