Engineered to Carry.

one step harness adjustmentOne Step Harness Adjustment

The Mont Moto Active adjustable harness is elegant in its design and deceptively simple to adjust. The shoulder straps are attached to a yoke panel that adjusts independently of the aluminium stays via a single webbing adjustment. The shoulder yoke is easily adjusted by releasing or tensioning the red 25mm webbing through the tension lock buckle located adjacent to the lumbar pad.

bar tacked webbingsBar Tacked Webbings

All load bearing webbing points are triple machine stitched and then bar tacked for unparalleled strength. We take the view that you should be able to pick up a fully loaded pack using any webbing point.

Only high quality Duraflex and ITW buckles are used in Mont backpacks. They are selected for their innovative designs and high quality Nylon castings.

Mont Packs use high quality Nylon webbings that are manufactured to stringent military specifications.





water bladder compatibleWater Bladder Compatible

A majority of Mont Packs feature a hydration bladder specific pocket inside the main compartment. The bladder hose threads through a cleverly designed slot above the shoulder yoke and easily locates on either shoulder strap.




double layer basesDouble Layer Bases

All Mont packs are constructed with double layer bases ensuring great strength and lasting durability. Mont bushwalking backpacks have a dual layer base which includes an internal layer of DR80 Canvas reinforced with an external layer of 1000 denier Nylon.




laminated foamsLaminated Foams

High density open and closed cell foams are used in combination to ensure maximum comfort at all body contact points. The multiple foams are laminated to stretch woven Nylon fabrics producing shoulder straps and hip-belts with smooth and soft rolled edges. This process eliminates fabric wrinkles and bunching that can cause irritation.




only ykk zipsOnly YKK Zips

Mont backpacks feature only genuine YKK zips and sliders, the strongest and most reliable zips available.





v-ridge foamV-Ridge Foam

Mont packs incorporate V-Ridge Foam in the back body contact panels. This low-density, closed cell foam does not absorb moisture and the V-Ridge profile facilitates air flow to minimise overheating and maximise moisture dispersion.

dr80 canvasAustralian Made DR80 Canvas

All canvas Mont packs are made from DR80 Canvas, an Australian made, waterproof, very durable, rip-stop canvas, highly resistant to bacteria growth and UV damage.

DR80 Canvas is highly waterproof by way of its tight weave, chemical treatment and ability to swell. In wet conditions canvas fibres swell, when the fibres swell microscopic gaps in the fabric are sealed off making the canvas even more waterproof again. Unlike Nylon, canvas is not reliant on a DWR treatment or a PU coating to be waterproof.

Highly Durable
DR80 Canvas with ripstop is extremely durable and if cared for correctly is guaranteed to give you many years of use in the wild.

UV & Bacteria Resistant
DR80 Canvas is resistant to damage from UV light and bacteria growth thanks to the DR80 chemical formula. The raw canvas is immersed in a bath and the formula is squeezed into the fibres. This fully immersed application also allows the fabric to “breathe” rather than being sealed by a coating.
