The largest zip entry daypack in our range the Trance 32 has an abundance of features and is ideal for any extended day trips. It boasts great new features such as the fleece lined pocket that protects your personal information while the stretch shoulder strap pocket keeps your phone easily accessible. It offers a 32 litre capacity and is constructed from Hard wearing Australian made DR80 Canvas.
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® 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.
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.
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.
Waterproof: The DR80 process guarantees to be waterproof with every batch of canvas produced to exacting standards and tested for Hydrostatic Pressure and Cone Test leakage.
UV and Bacteria/Fungi Resistant: The DR80 chemical formula ensures a UV stable fabric and provides resistance against bacteria and fungi growth.
Fully Immersed Production Process: The DR80 production process ensures the wax formula penetrates the yarns of the base fabric. This is achieved by fully immersing the fabric in a padding bath and squeezing the formula into the fibres. This system also allows the fabric to 'breathe' as the woven base fabric is not sealed by a coating.
This pack is hydration bladder compatible with a bladder pocket inside the main compartment. The bladder hose threads through a cleverly designed port at the top of the pack.
Excellent delivery response. The pack itself was replacing an old one 10ish years. her only grouch Is that the phone pocket is landscape not portrait. For me, the shoulder straps are thiinner, the back system is improved, but longevity? Don’t understand hole in hipbelf, sweat reduction carrying 8kg. Lost the booner lift loop at top and the round bottom section of the outside. These were longevity and aesthetic pluses. Good update, but tempered by the common with everyone else trend that quality is diminishing due to price competition and the market’s perceived desire for ****** features. Bag though 8.5/ 10. Nice bag!
I'm a pack tragic, it seems like I've been searching for my perfect pack for ever, but the Trance 32 has made me very happy and eliminated three other packs from weekly use. I commute by bicycle and motorcycle most of the time, but the changing volume of gear required, laptops, work clothes and so on, has meant that I usually change packs frequently. The Trance though provides all of my must haves; -a superb hip belt that bears most of the weight, yet the clever cut out design eliminates any hot spots -a comfortable and adjustable shoulder strap system -great ventilation -being able to mould the back -adjustable volume with cinch straps -ample space for a three litre hydration bladder -great compartments, and a waterproof zip on the RFID proof top pocket. -hard wearing canvas My longest day of wearing the pack to date is a ten hour cycling effort, during which the pack stayed comfortable and carried all I needed, and more. Which is possibly the only down side, it carries gear so well that sometimes I carry more than I need.
I got myself one of these packs before heading to Nepal, I planned on using it to carry my camera and climbing gear. It never left my side for my 3 month adventure, I took it to Tsho Rolpa lake and took it caving, not a mark on it and no sign of damage. this was 2 year ago, i have been thrashing this bag as my daly commute cycling bag in Vancouver since then, still no signs or getting old. Very well made and super comfy. I look forward to getting a icicle jacket next for cold BC climbing.
