The SPECIALIST is the all-time BACH trekking and travel classic and the most lightweight big volume trekking workhorse on the market. Fitted with the well ventilated, most comfortable Expedition Suspension System and with a volume big enough for a long week in the backcountry the SPECIALIST has proven to be a reliable travel and expedition companion made from 1000D Cordura®. The front access which can be accessed easily even with a fixed lid is a great travel feature and provides extra convenience while on tour.
For most adventures the EXPEDITION Suspension System, which is built on a modular base, is the back system of your choice. The EXPEDITION backs come in up to 4 different back lengths and can be fitted with men’s or women’s (height-adjustable) shoulder straps and up to 3 sizes of hip belts. Suitable for medium and heavy loads up to 35 kg.
500D / 420D Cordura®
500D CORDURA® Classic is a little lighter than the 1000D and still convinces with excellent abrasion and tear resistance. The yarn is air-texturised, thinner and the weaving is denser resulting in a matt and soft appearance. 420D RS is a CORDURA® Nylon fabric. The weaving technique produces great tensile strength for its weight. Furthermore, the tear propagation resistance of the one third lighter 420D fabric is even higher compared to the 1000D Cordura® fabric.
