Making dyes more environmentally-friendly
Our teams work on finding innovative processes that reduce the use or pollution of water during manufacturing. The "dope dyeing" technique (bulk-dyeing) saves up to 60% water and significantly reduces CO2 emissions. This also reduces colour fading over time.
We have started using this process on the black (Ref: 8529024), navy blue (8583151), purple/turquoise (8529020), brown (8502141) while efforts to master this technique on other colours continue.
Making materials more environmentally-friendly
For the interior of this backpack, we have decided to use a "greige" component, i.e. without additional dyeing, which gives it a light appearance.
Despite everything, the component retains all of its properties, including its durability. This also makes it easier to see the contents of the bag thanks to this process that can also deliver a big reduction in the carbon footprint.
How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: we fill the main compartment, as well as each pocket, with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
How to adjust your backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, belt, load adjuster straps)
2 - Put on the backpack
3 - Tighten the shoulder straps
4 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed
How to fill your backpack?
Put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within arm’s reach. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided along the back, and the water bottle in the outer flask holder pockets provided for this purpose.
We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.
Your opinion is important to us!
Thanks to all your feedback, we have improved the design of our NH100 20-litre backpack.
In this new model, we have improved the main zip to make it easier to open. We have also added a compartment and a zipped pocket in the main pocket.
