EVOC SNOW 2017// ENHANCED SAFETY: BACKPACKS WITH AN INTERGRATED BACK PROTECTOR
After an avalanche accident while filming a snowboarding video in 1999, former freeride professional Holger Feist came up with the idea of a backpack with integrated back protector. Although the accident did not involve burial and did not result in really serious consequences, Holger sustained back injuries as a result of his avalanche shovel when he crashed in a couloir. The road from the first protector backpack for own use to market maturity with TÜV/GS certification may have been a long one, but today EVOC has become a synonym for backpacks with integrated back protector. The brand offers more than 100 different packs in all models and sizes, for women and men. For 2016/17 the proven FR range again includes new models that have been precisely adapted to their area of use when it comes to volume and features.

Protection technology: The heart of all EVOC PROTECTOR BACKPACKS is the extremely lightweight, CE-certified LITESHIELD BACK PROTECTOR weighing only 145 grams. Consisting of a segmented EPS core, adaptive PU foam, additional cushioning layers and breathable coating, the spine protector flexibly adapts to the shape of your back and can handle any movement. In the event of a fall, it can absorb up to 95% of the impact energy. Decisive for winter sports: the protector is not susceptible to temperatures. It provides reliable back protection in temperatures ranging from plus 30° to minus 20° degrees Celsius.

Certification: As one of few manufacturers, we have every one of our protector backpacks TÜV/ GS certified. This test standard of the German TÜV is the highest test standard in the world and presumes CE marking, which is supplemented by additional strict tests – for even more product safety. Not only our professionals rely on this during the most challenging descents all over the world, “regular” winter sports lovers also profit from additional safety, which, in the worst case, can protect them against serious back injuries if they fall.

Features:

What all PROTECTOR BACKPACKS from EVOC have in common is the proven 2-Step Zip System. Systematic packing of the main compartment can either be done via the top (toploader) or by opening the pack along the entire length. An individual compartment for hydration systems is part of the standard features, as are small, perfectly laid-out compartments like the fleece-lined goggles compartment, the mesh compartment with key clip for your wallet and valuables, or the convenient hip belt pockets for mini tools or necessities. Multi-functional, stow-away attachment loops complete the standard features of the EVOC PROTECTOR BACKPACKS.

The ergonomic, extra-wide hip belt with characteristic buckle transfers the weight to the hips and consequently to the body’s centre of gravity. The load behaviour is neutral to movement, ensuring maximum safety without restricting mobility in any way. The ergonomically designed shoulder straps and the chest strap with integrated signal whistle keep the backpack comfortably in place. They also guarantee the necessary body proximity for a protector.

And while we’re on the topic of safety: A quick-access avalanche compartment provides space for your complete equipment. A handy feature is the integrated emergency plan, which explains initial steps to be taken after a burial and which serves as a reminder in case of an emergency.
