Grip 3.0 Backpack 40L

Colour: Raven

A Swiss (or Swedish) army knife of a pack

Built for big adventures in the remote mountains of northern Sweden, the Grip 3.0 backpack covers a lot of bases. With a 40L capacity, it’s roomy enough for multi-day backpacking trips, while its streamlined shape also makes it a great technical mountain pack for ponying lots of climbing gear up to the rock face. It's also a great choice for winter conditions, with attachment points for a shovel and axe, and D-rings on the waist belt for towing a pulk. If you haven't come across Klättermusen backpacks before, they have a slightly unconventional approach to harness design. They reckon that by putting the load on your bones rather than your muscles, you avoid restricting the blood supply and can carry heavier loads with greater ease. Their packs are some of the most comfortable in the business, and if you try one on you’ll soon see why they’ve got such a cult following in Scandinavia and beyond

  • 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.
