The TRAVERSE 18 S is a fully equipped backpack for men and women with short backs. The back system in this model is considerably shorter. The “S” in the name stands for SHORT.
The TRAVERSE 18 S backpack is most at home on day tours. The ergonomically shaped shoulder straps and the broad hip belt ensure a balanced distribution of weight. With its large main compartment and several additional compartments, this backpack offers plenty of storage space for equipment. Smaller objects can be quickly stowed away in the slot compartment on the front, and your drinking bottle is always close at hand in the elastic side compartments. Features such as a rain cover and hiking pole fastening are also included, as is hydration system compatibility, a hip pocket and a holder for sunglasses on the shoulder strap. The TRAVERSE 18 S is rounded off with images of Alpine emergency signals on the inside.
BACK SYSTEM: COMFORT CONTACT
The contact pads in our ALPINE SERIES light-weight back system ensure permanent circulation of air, and make our backpacks a pleasure to wear during activities that involve a great deal of movement. In addition, the soft pads offer extremely high wear comfort.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
