Hike longer and farther.

Big backpacking missions always come across issues, whether it is overgrown trails pulling at your pack or adverse weather slowing you down. Turn to the hardcore Specialist 2 73L Backpack to carry everything you need and be prepared for anything. This is Bachs medium capacity trekking pack and it comes built for abuse.

The entire outside of this pack is built using 1000D Cordura fabric, allowing it to graze against cliff faces and be pricked by branches time and time again without ripping. Cordura also does not add much weight at all, using Cordura only added 5oz to the original specialist pack that was far less durable. In addition to its durability this pack offers a plethora of pockets and a Expedition Suspension System to keep you organized and evenly distribute the weight of the pack helping you to hike longer and further.

  • A mid volume backpacking pack for long treks
  • Cordura outer material is extremely durable
  • Suspension system evenly distributes weight for maximum comfort
  • Plethora of pockets offer advanced organization
  • included rain cover keeps your gear dry during rainstorms

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The SPECIALIST is the all-time BACH trekking and travel classic and one of the lightest big volume trekking workhorse on the market.

Fitted with the well ventilated, most comfortable Expedition Suspension System and with a volume big enough for a long week in the backcountry the SPECIALIST has proven to be a reliable travel and expedition companion.

SPECIALIST 4 offers a really long back system for tall men.

The front access is a great travel feature and provides extra convenience while on tour.
