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 of 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 materials.
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.
