Bergelmer Backpack 50L

Juniper Green

Fully-featured trekking pack

This prince among packs has humble origins. The tough recycled nylon used in Klättermusen's backpacks comes from such unlikely sources as industrial fishing nets and old carpets, which makes it all the more impressive that they've repurposed this plastic waste into such an astonishingly comfortable and durable piece of kit. The Bergelmer is a classic trekking pack with a 50-litre capacity that makes it big enough for serious multi-day expeditions. Like Klättermusen's other large packs, it features unique innovations like their 'Butterfly Bridge' lateral adjustment system across the shoulders, and an unusual method of placing the load on your bony bits to minimise muscle fatigue. Give one a go and you'll soon see why Klättermusen is the Rolls Royce of long-distance trail packs

  • The mountain town of Åre is kind of like a Swedish Chamonix. It’s home to the country’s biggest ski area, and the rugged terrain is criss-crossed by long-distance hiking paths, snowmobile trails and downhill biking tracks.

    It’s from this gnarly outdoor playground that cult Scandi gear brand, Klättermusen, emerged back in 1975. The company started out as a bunch of local climbers turning out DIY technical gear from a small workshop, and within ten years they’d already built up a rep for innovative and impeccably designed kit.

    These days outdoor manufacturers love to shout about their environmental credentials, but sustainability is nothing new for Klättermusen. It’s been part of their ethos since those early days of flares and prog rock, and they’ve always believed that good gear should be made to last. Their packs and clothing are designed to hold up reliably year after year in full-on Alpine and sub-Arctic conditions – and this is even more impressive when you consider that many of their fabrics incorporate recycled materials like discarded fishing nets and worn-out carpets.

    Pretty much no-one else is making outdoor gear of this quality, but somehow 'the Climbing Mouse' continues to scuttle slightly under the radar. Mention Klättermusen’s packs to any serious Swedish mountaineer and they either have one or want one, but outside Scandinavia it's still very much an ‘if you know, you know’ sort of a brand.
