The Holiday is designed for the adventurer, someone who
intends to travel for an extended period of time. This backpack
is designed to offer the astute buyer an equal competitor
to the most expensive backpacks . The SHS Harness System
used in this backpack is the result of three years of development
by the White Mountain™ Team .. The SHS Harness System
used in this backpack is a true unisex harness with contoured
shoulder straps and extra material on the anchor position
of the hip belt to allow true contouring over the hips.
The stated total capacity on a White Mountain™
Travel pack includes the day pack, excluding the portion
of the daypack compressed behind the daypack attachment
zipper. The total capacity of the daypack compressed and
zipped to the travel pack is 10 litres, and uncompressed
the total capacity is 20.50 litres.
If the daypack is to be used and attached to the Travel
Pack fully expanded, we recommend using the D-Ring Attachment
Straps on the daypack. Simply attach these to the D-Rings
on top of the Travel Pack and use the existing lower compression
straps on the main pack (Attaching the lower compression
straps to the daypack as usual.) This method of attachment
when confronted with a fully loaded daypack will prevent
damage to the daypack attachment zipper.
The quoted capacity of either 65 litres, 75 litres or
85 litres does not take into account the compressed portion
the daypack. This would add conservatively 10 litres to
the quoted capacity of the Holiday MK3, bringing the total
capacity to either 75 litres, 85 litres or 95 litres respectively.
The material is 950D Kodra, one of the strongest and most
durable synthetic products , and a fabric often used on
military backpacks for strength and abrasive resistance.
All fabric for White Mountain™ Backpacks is manufactured
by Kolon Int. in Korea, a highly reputable and leading world
fabric manufacturer that produces high quality synthetic
There are two compartments on this backpack, the upper
and lower divided by a draw cord division so you can use
the backpack as one compartment, or two compartments. It
has two suitcase carry handles, (one on the side and one
on top), a removable 20.50 litre daypack with an internal
organiser and a facility to install a water reservoir complete
with an exit point for the water reservoir hose, one shoulder
sling, and a zipped cover over the harness (the harness
cover and shoulder sling can both be folded and stored at
the base of the backpack). We also provide a facility to
attach the daypack without using the zips, a handy option
when attaching a very full daypack. Inside this backpack
there is two internal compression straps with a removable
organiser, a full wet proof pocket on the inside of the
front loading (panel opening) lid, which is great for storing
laundry or the temporary storage of damp clothing, and six
external compression straps. The two lower compression straps
are long enough to accommodate a sleeping mat if required,
or can also be used to strap extra gear to your backpack.
There are four D-Rings on top of this backpack, which allows
you to add further compression straps and secure more gear
on top if required.
