Backcountry Backpack

A comfortable multi-day walk begins with a good harness on your backpack. The 75 to 85L Mont Backcountry Backpack is built on the Moto Active Harness System, providing superior load carrying with fine-tune adjustment, supportive contoured shoulder straps, a body-hugging hip-belt & excellent weight distribution.

The Backcountry is available with 3 different back lengths depending on your height: Women’s with 75L capacity, Medium with 80L capacity & Large with 85L capacity.

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

    Infinity Corespun Canvas

    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.

    Moto Active Harness System

    The Moto Active Harness System provides load bearing comfort for mid to high volume packs.

    • Contoured Shoulder Straps. Shoulder straps map the curves of your torso and provide stability and 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 and 25% stronger than previously used extruded aluminium stays.
    • Multilayer Foam Hip Belt. Moto Active contoured hip-belt with 8 layer construction: open and closed cell foams, HTPE sheet and 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.

    Large size only

    • The Large 85L Backcountry is for those with a back length of 50 to 60cm.
    • Your back length is from your C7 vertebra down your spine to the point level with the top if your iliac crest (hip-bone).

    Versatile packing and easy-access pockets

    The Backcountry is a dual compartment pack with access via the top and base. Inside is a divider that can be easily zipped open to make a large single compartment.

    On the sides of the pack are double layer stretch Nylon pockets that are easily accessed even while wearing the pack. On the inner layer pocket put a water bottle, and on the side pocket keep your trail-mix within easy reach.

    The lid of the backcountry has clips at the front and rear that allow you to extend the height as needed or remove the lid completely.

    Cordura Nylon reinforcement

    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.

    Water Bladder Compatible

    As with almost all Mont backpacks, the Backcountry Pack is water bladder compatible. There is a bladder pocket inside the main compartment and a bladder hose port above the backpanel that leads the hose to loops on either shoulder strap.
