It’s the lightest system on the market to date – a key criterion for this touring pack. Weighing under 2.5 kg when fully equipped (canisters, etc.), it offers a volume suited to day excursions. The Neo’s upfront mountain look sets the scene: it will be worn on ascents, so it must meet the challenge. The breathability of the carry system is a priority for this hybrid pack, which borrows technologies from the summer hiking category. The material selected for the back is used on fast hiking packs, while the breathable back is enhanced by general air circulation courtesy of the mesh and engineering of the shoulder straps and hip belt. For the avalanche airbag system, a fitting motto would be "less is more". Understated design is often a hallmark of efficiency – as explained by Antoine, backpacks product manager: "When we reviewed the market, we noticed a fairly recent Swiss brand, Alpride, with which we’ve formed a partnership. We really liked its airbag, which is quite innovative in how simply it operates. The system’s very simple design actually means it’s highly reliable. A distinctive aspect of this high-performance item is that it’s all-mechanical. The spring is pressure-loaded, so the activation handle is sure to work." Your rescuer’s name? Neo!
