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 (mass pigmentation) saves up to 60% water and significantly reduces CO² emissions. This also reduces colour fading over time.
In 2019, we started using this process on the black, navy, red/grey, denim, green/blue versions (efforts to master this technique on other colours are still continuing).
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.
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 your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of the NH100 10-litre backpack.
On this new model, we have added a double zip on the main compartment and a larger pocket bottom on the outside pocket. The aim is to not lose your belongings when opening your bag.
Of course, we haven't increased the price!
