Equipped with "OGAWAND" original gimmick
Full-scale large backpack
Why is it "large" now?
I think many people wondered, "Why is the garage brand promoting weight reduction so large?"
In recent years, with the support of the method and style of "UL (Ultra Light)", not only garage brands but also mass product makers have increased the number of backpacks that claim to be ultra-lightweight. I feel that I can now freely choose the one I like from a wide variety of models from small to medium size (40 liter class).
However, when it comes to "large backpacks (60L or more)", the story is a little different. In the case of long-term vertical running where replenishment is difficult, shooting equipment, bulky winter gear, mountain line with shared party equipment, etc., the weight naturally increases according to the capacity, and the backpack is more "durable" than "own weight" The importance shifts to "good fitting". Even if the backpack is 500g heavier, if you can easily carry + 5.0kg, it will be cost-effective. As a result, while understanding the benefits of lightness, it is also true that many people choose mass product products even if they are a little heavy due to their track record, sense of security, and large lineup.
"Light but heavy" This sounds simple, but it's also very difficult. Many people have incorporated weight reduction into their activities, and have realized that lighter equipment can help them walk lighter, feel more natural, and improve safety. He also showed the possibility of realizing the "desire" and "longing" that will be born in the future, "I may be able to do what I thought was impossible until now, or I may be able to go farther." However, the number 1.0kg does not lie. Step by step, it keeps straining your body and you cannot escape the curse of weight. A "large backpack" is something that is required between such ideals and reality, and is like a "culmination" that cannot be reached without injecting the technology, ideas, and know-how of the manufacturer. I think it's a thing.
Even for "OGAWAND", this theme is inevitable, and we have continued to search for "a garage-like flexible idea and approach" through repeated tests. The "Goraon" has a high-level spec with a maximum load capacity of 65L and a weight of 940g (min: 830g), and a gimmick full of originality.
"Back center of gravity design" supports weight
The "back center of gravity" is not unusual, and there has been a category product called "Alpine Pack" that is closer to climbing. Although it is not suitable for carrying heavy loads, the backpack "OWN" equipped with the "OGAWAND" original gimmick ADC <Adjustable Daisy Chain> system provides a load vector (direction) while being the "back center of gravity". Succeeded in changing and reducing the burden on the body. Even in the absence of the frame lightweight backpack, it has demonstrated that the "body itself" the by replacing the frame ※ 1 Seoeru luggage is comfortable even heavier, that.
The "Midriff * 2 Harness" is a shoulder harness that is even heavier with a one-way vector change. Many people have experienced a little comfort when walking with the shoulder harness held by both hands when the luggage is heavy and the shoulders are tired during the hike. That is because the harness is pushed forward to increase the degree of adhesion with the backpack, and the load vector applied in the rear-down direction is changed (forward) to release the burden (weight) on the shoulder.
The "mid riff harness" takes over the function of the harness itself, and it is an epoch-making harness system unique to "OGAWAND" that "supports the weight with the center of gravity of the back" while suppressing the weight increase of the backpack.
High Waist Belt makes it even lighter
For men, there is no problem if the "mid riff harness" alone weighs about 15 to 16 kg, but adding a "high waist belt (sold separately)" will improve the usability over longer distances and longer hours. A typical "waist load" backpack transfers the load well, so the backpack's "frame" and "waist harness" must be "structurally connected". For this reason it is absolutely tend to its own weight becomes heavy, and only backpack body does not have this "structural coupling" is cause down lost the weight, waist belt also burdened comfortable now treated like mere "fall stop" I can't.
Therefore, in order to utilize the "back center of gravity" of "Goraon", it was concluded that it is most effective to "tighten with a wide pad" that wraps the constricted part (high waist) of the torso above the hipbone with the palm. It was. Since it receives a load over a large area while responding to the movement of the soft torso, it does not hurt the hip bone or make it difficult to raise the legs, and the burden on the shoulders can be reduced.
When you hear that "it's light but it can support the weight," it sounds like a dream, but it's not without its disadvantages. "Replacing the body itself with the frame of the backpack" means that the backpack is in close contact with the body. In other words, sweating on the back side is inevitable except for those who "do not sweat" very much. Walking without "overheating", skills and equipment to suppress "cold sweat", and since the center of gravity of the whole is at a slightly higher position, it is necessary to have the strength of the core to suppress the wobbling of the upper body when descending with a steep slope. .. As with the packing of "frameless backpacks", the idea of "supplementing with technology and skills to gain lightness" is needed here as well. For women who are worried about chest pressure, a combination of "standard harness " + "high waist belt" is also available to tighten the sternum and the two places near the ribs.
Sufficient functionality, more than enough expandability
If your luggage is large and heavy, loading and unloading your backpack can be a hassle. The side pockets of "Goraon" are very large and adopt a unique shape that is easy to access even while carrying it on your back. The tension cord in the center of the edge of the pocket allows you to use the "back side" and "outside (front) side" of the pocket as if they were two independent pockets, rather than just a large pocket.
The compression belt on the side can hold a heavy object such as a tripod firmly, and the release buckle on the upper and lower ends makes it easy to open and remove the belt. If you press the side pocket from above with a belt, you can attach long items such as skis. Of course, "optional parts " that use the ADC system are still alive. It can be freely removed and repositioned according to the activity at that time.
The main fabric is "X-Pac VX21", which is lightweight yet highly durable and waterproof, and can be used tough all year round regardless of the season or field. Choose the size that suits you from a total of 5 combinations of 6 colors with a calm impression and 3 sizes of back length x 3 harnesses according to your physique.

Solve the additional disadvantages of "large size"
Most large backpacks have a large frame to support their weight and are hard, and require a considerable amount of storage space even when nothing is put in them. Also, as a matter of fact, it will be difficult for many people to go to the mountains where they use large gears many times a year, and because of the few usage opportunities, it is difficult to buy expensive and bulky gear, and it is difficult to get used to it. I think there are many people who feel a dilemma in particular. "Goraon" has a variable size range of 40 to 65L, so it can cover a wide range of processes centered on the shogunate. Even when not in use, if you remove the contents, it will be as thin as a few centimeters and weigh less than 1.0 kg, which is lighter than a long winter coat, so you can store it in a closet or even a medium-sized suitcase. The lightweight large backpack "Goraon" with variable capacity, high customizability, and an original gimmick that you can comfortably carry on your back is finally on sale.
Take your mountain line to the next stage.
