Mammut alpine backpacks
As requested by the Pro Team: Mammut alpine backpacks
In summer of 2012, Mammut will be launching new and improved versions of popular backpacks such as the Trion and Trea models as part of the revised alpine line. The new features are mainly functional details requested by the Mammut Pro Team. The range also features a new addition, the extremely robust Trion Alpinist.
The improvements to the Alpine line build on the existing series and provide some useful additions for everyday applications in alpine sport. The size of the flaps has been significantly increased in comparison with last year. This ensures that even larger items are within easy reach, without having to empty out the backpack’s contents. The ice tool attachments have also been adjusted on all Trion models (except for the Trion Element) to cater for technical ice tools with bent handles. The backpacks also include an attachment for the crampon bag, which is also available and compatible with all the backpacks in the range. The only exceptions are the Trion and Trea Guide which still have a special compartment.
With the Trion Alpinist, Mammut is serving the needs of traditionalists. In this case, simple operation and a robust appearance take precedence over extremely light weight and technical details. The result is a very robust backpack which is very simple to use thanks to the stitched in single-buckle flap. The flat floor also provides a stable base if you need to place the backpack on the ground at any point.
Before being launched on the market, Mammut products go through extensive tests to guarantee the highest possible quality. However, even after their launch, products are continuously developed. Feedback from dealers, customers and sponsored athletes provides an important source of inspiration for the next models. In the case of the alpine backpacks, suggestions from top alpinists such as Stephan Siegrist and the Eiger North Face record-holder Dani Arnold were extremely helpful.
