Backpacks: Expedition Backpacks

Lost World

The choice of outdoor professionals. This canvas equivalent of our Mountain Expedition model performs across the whole spectrum of backcountry pursuits. Using the highest grade of genuine Australian corespun canvas available the Lost World is a pack of rare quality. It combines essential break-down modularity, compression ability and fit-out for alpine use with the strength, heavy-load comfort and weather-resistance demanded on extended, off-track journeys through rough, wet country. The long canvas bag with its wide, draw-string throat and jack-up, bum-bag-convertible top cover has capacity to contain outsized loads and double as a three-quarter bivibag. The Synchro-FORM harness system completes the comfort side of the equation.

Although the Breakout lies towards the budget end of our classic Australian canvas pack range it is the perfect entry-level and institutional-use WE pack model. It has been in the range for almost 30 years and, as result of this long experience, continuously refined to optimise durability and comfort. It incorporates our original, efficient, zip-free back pocket, our wide-mouth throat, high-cut bag with heavy-duty draw cord closure, features frequently copied these days. Our strong, quick-change, dual-back-length system is unique and fitted to all bag sizes. It provides for teenage growth and solves the problems of best fitting a range of body sizes in any youth group. Perhaps surprisingly, the Breakout includes our sophisticated Synchro-FORM harness system. Its adaptive fit is an important advantage but so too is the possibility of simple repair. This is a perfect first backpack for young people beginning a life of outdoor adventure.

Expedition Duffel Bags

These super-tough Expedition Duffel Bags use heavy-duty Australian Canvas coupled with detailed design and reinforced construction to absolutely minimise wear and tear. Available now in three sizes, we were originally asked to develop the large size by an expedition outfitter using yak transports in Nepal. (Everything else on the market, tried over many seasons had failed). WE duffels have now well-and-truly proven themselves under rough handling in harsh environments. You will not find equivalent durability or fit-out. The 120L large size was specifically designed long so it comfortably accommodates a 100L pack along with other gear (snow stakes and other climbing hardware, for example). Lockable zips keep out the curious few, while multiple, super-reinforced lashing points and grab handles make handling, hauling and load building with these duffels a breeze.
