Klättermusen Backpacks

Klättermusen Backpack Systems are built around the practical needs of mountaineers. They are comprehensive and provide the ability to use the same equipment for different types of missions. Our packs and bags range from highly tailored ones for specific types of outdoor experiences, to more versatile ones for everyday adventures. We also ensure the different parts of our system can be interchanged and reconfigured as needed.

 

Base your volume needs on how long you’ll be out for. For daypacks, we recommend up to 33 liters, depending on your activity and amount you need to pack. For 2-4 days, a pack ranging from 30-55 liters is recommended to fit all the essentials. For trips longer than 5 days, a pack of 50+ liters is ideal.

Use this guide to help you find the perfect backpack for your specific requirements. In-depth descriptions and details about the backpacks can be found on each product page.

The design and technology behind our backpacks

Fabrics & Technologies


Backpacks made for carrying heavier loads are equipped with our harness load transfer system Carry-On-Bones and Butterfly Bridge. The system allows you to carry the weight on your bones rather than on your muscles which helps mitigate muscle fatigue. Another great feature of our backpacks is our loop and hole webbing that allows you to tailor your backpack to fit your needs by adding extra storage and accessories. All of our packs are made with waterproof fabrics to withstand light rain. For heavy rain, we recommend a rain cover as most of our packs do not come with taped seams and are therefore not fully waterproof. Learn more under Fabrics & Technologies.


Lightweight vs. Midweight backpacks


Lightweight and midweight packs differ in more areas than just the weight. Our lightweight packs have a slimmed design where extra zippers and multiple pockets have been removed in favor of keeping the weight to a minimum, without compromising the overall features. The carrying system provides comfort and allows you to move fast and light. Our midweight packs are as they sound, slightly heavier in overall weight. The main focus for these is carrying comfort during a longer period of time. Midweight packs also have added features, such as extra zippers and pockets that help facilitate an organized pack, which result in an overall heavier backpack.


Size adjustment


All backpacks are unisex and have multiple adjustment points to ensure an optimal fit, such as adjustable shoulder straps, hip belt and back length. The back panels combined with the size adjustments give you just the right fit.

An Adaptable System

An Adaptable System

One Adaptable and Close-Knit System

Our backpacks and packs are all part of a close-knit system, where they all work as a seamlessly interactable part of a bigger structure. While we offer a great range of backpacks, we also have a wide selection of tote bags, lumbar packs and accessories. All smaller packs are equipped with toggles that can easily be attached to our backpacks thanks to the loop and hole webbing. Choosing a Klättermusen backpack offers the possibility to tailor your backpack based on your specific needs of volume and features.

 

All accessories and smaller packs can also be used on their own as daily or adventure based packs. Only you set the limits.
