Its padded airmesh is soft and breathable. This integration provides comfort due to it being adequately raised and contoured, causing your back and shoulders to be pain-free.

Breathability is key when choosing your rucksack. The Carrion 65l has a purposely designed dent in the middle of the back of the rucksack. This directs airflow to your back, creating ventilation and prevents back sweat as much as possible.

After wearing an unventilated backpack for a while, it may start to stink from constant accumulation of bacteria born odor caused by constant sweat absorption. This rucksack is designed for longevity.

Adjustable Ladder Lock Back System

You can easily adjust the straps in order to fit your height to get maximum support. This well-structured feature allows you to have proper posture and thus keep potential back discomforts at bay.

Posture is key when hiking or rucking, some people tend to hunch forward when the weight is too heavy, which typically leads to lower back pain.

Therefore, we strongly recommend that you adjust the back of the rucksack so that bottom of the rucksack is high enough to be carried above the waist and hips. Keep in mind that the hip belt is there for a reason, to be around your hip! So if you find yourself wrapping the hip-belt above or below your hip, you may want to adjust the ladder lock back accordingly.
