Recently, Helikon-Tex has been developing its product line with a more outdoor-touristic profile – Helikon Outback. After introducing new and quite successful clothes into the offer – including the OTP pants, Wolfhound jacket or Windrunner windshirt – it’s time for backpacks. The first approach to the topic of packs which aren’t covered with MOLLE from top to bottom is the 44-liter Helikon-Tex Summit backpack. Available both in classic colors – black, olive, shadow grey and coyote – as well as in a completely new for Helikon-Tex (and ‘non-tactical’) blue, it stands out from the previous designs of the manufacturer with a build inspired more by the lightweight outdoor backpacks than the military-tactical packs (thanks to which, among other things, the weight of the Summit backpack is only 1250g).
It’ll take us a few months to properly test and review the Helikon-Tex Summit backpack, however, as it was just released and there are hardly any images showing it’s design available on the web, we have prepared for you an extensive set of more detailed photos!
The Helikon-Tex Summit backpack features rather usual shoulder straps with a sternum strap, what’s worth mentioning, however, is a lack of D-rings or quick release system
The front of the backpack was equipped with a beaver tail made of the Cordura and stretch fabric, which allows carrying a helmet or a few additional things
This seems to be everything about the design of the Helikon-Tex Summit backpack, not it’s time for a few months of testing in the outdoors, which will allow us to review the backpack #goprepared
Many thanks to e-militaria.pl for giving us a chance to test the backpack!
