The Backcountry Backpack is a fully featured, large capacity pack designed for multi-day walks carrying expedition-size loads. The Mont Backcountry Canvas Pack is available in 3 adjustable sizes depending on your height, and combines hardwearing construction, excellent weight dispersion and fine-tune adjustment for superior trail comfort.


The Backcountry is built from Infinity Corespun canvas, a highly durable poly/cotton fabric. The strength of the fabric is due to the composite yarn: a polyester core with cotton wrapped around it. The composite yarn base provides superior strength and unequalled performance. Once woven the fabric is treated with a wax based polymer for water resistance, anti-bacteria protection and UV stability.

The Backcountry is a dual compartment pack with access via the top and base. Inside is a divider that can be zipped open to make a large single compartment. On the sides of the pack are pleated canvas bottle pockets that are easily accessed even while wearing the pack.

The base of the Backcountry Backpack is a dual layer consisting of Infinity Corespun Canvas inside and 980 denier Cordura Nylon outside. Cordura Nylon is a highly abrasion resistant fabric.

The Backcountry is available with 3 different back lengths depending on your height: Women's, Medium & Large.

The Moto Active Harness System provides long distance comfort on mid to high volume packs.

  • Contoured Shoulder Straps. Shoulder straps map the curves of your torso & provide stability & comfort on the longest of walks.
  • Dual Vertical & Single Horizontal Hollow Core Stays. Weight is transferred directly to the hip-belt via two hollow-core aluminium stays. Hollow-core stays are 20% lighter & 25% stronger than previously used extruded aluminium stays.
  • Multilayer Foam Hip Belt. Moto Active contoured hip-belt with 8 layer construction: open & closed cell foams, HTPE sheet & highly durable Cordura Nylon.
  • V-Ridge Foam. Stay cooler with the ventilated, non-moisture-absorbing, V-Ridge Foam back panel.
  • Single Point Adjustment. Adjust the back length with one simple change.



Bar 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 loaded pack using any webbing point.

Cordura Nylon

Cordura® fabric provides durable performance for a variety of end uses, including packs, luggage, workwear and motorcycle apparel. Cordura has excellent tear and abrasion resistance and long-lasting durability.

Cordura fabric is constructed with qualifying Invista yarns which are woven in the classic 2x2 basket weave construction in accordance with Invista's approved fabric standards for the Cordura brand.

Hollow form frame stays

The Hollow Form Aluminium Stays used in Mont packs are made from high strength, low weight 6000 series aluminium and are 25% stronger and 20% lighter than traditional extruded aluminium stays. These stays can be removed and shaped for a perfect fit.

V-ridge foam

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

Hydration bladder compatible

This pack is hydration bladder compatible with a bladder 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.

Infinity Corespun Canvas

Built from Infinity Corespun canvas, a highly durable poly/cotton canvas. The strength of the canvas is thanks to the composite yarn: a polyester core with cotton wrapped around it. The composite yarn base provides superior strength and unequalled performance. Once woven the fabric is treated with a wax based polymer for water resistance, anti-bacteria protection and UV stability. Infinity Corespun is designed to excel in the severe Australian wilderness.


Mont hip-belts are designed for ergonomic, load carrying comfort. They're made with dual density foam and a third layer of ultra-high density contoured foam along the split support wings. The hip-belt pulls inwards and draws in tension along the top and bottom support wings, distributing weight across the entire hip-belt.

    With this pack, not once, but always a jolly swagman

    Just recently took this little corespun blue gem for a skip around the high country and its up there with one of the best packs I’ve carried. The first thing I noticed was the hip belt that is sculpted to hold your hips and transfer the weight to your legs and off your shoulders. Talking about shoulder, I’m built more bulldog than whippet and on the 85L the shoulder straps are set wide so they don’t put pressure on your trapezius (the big muscle at the back of your neck). This baby’s got back, she’s big and wide in the bottom if you get my Sir Mix-a-lot drift, making her easy to pack and take a full load. Not to mention the duel entry option, so if you’ve got a dirty, soaking wet mess you can shove it in or pull it out of the bottom without tipping the content of your pack on a muddy patch. So, what’s not to love so much, well, the pack is designed with an extendable body, which means the head is adjustable, but the buckles don’t seem to be quite up to holding the head in position and you will find yourself untangling it from time to time when you’re repacking. The zips are built like they should be but are practically impossible to use with gloves on. The pack really needs those little tags at the end of the zip closures to allow you to pull the zip straight for opening and closing. My only other concern is the stretchy, flexible fabric from which the external pockets are made. The pockets might start looking like tight gym pants but over time will look and act more like ta ta flaps. Time will tell. Love's never perfect but this one’s close. I can’t wait to strap it on again see what happens next.
