What is the Abisko Friluft 35?

Fjallraven's Abisko range of products are constructed mainly to be lightweight, excellent all rounder's, yet still built to last a lifetime. This Abisko Friluft 35 will probably last longer than you will and can be passed down to future generations whilst still maintaining a classic and stylish appearance. 

What is the Friluft 35 made from?

The Abisko Friluft is made from Fjallravens G-1000 Heavy Duty Eco, their thickest and most durable fabric mainly used for packs and other products designed to last a lifetime without hindering performance. The 'Eco' part refers to the contents of the fabric; the cotton and polyester used inside the Abisko are fully recycled and organic, while the base of the pack uses super durable 500D waterproof nylon to keep your contents dry while stopping for a rest or snacking. 

What is the backsystem?

Comfort is one of the most important factors of any rucksack; if you're not comfortable, you won't enjoy your time outside. Fjallraven feature their Airvent suspended back system on the Abisko Friluft, meaning your back isn't in contact with the bag itself and only the mesh. This increases the breathability massively by allowing a constant airflow behind your back and increases the comfort by allowing the mesh to mould around the contours and bumps of your back. 

What are the features?

Access to the bag is achieved through the classic top loading point at the top of the bag with a drawcord; if this sounds a bit 'standard' to you, then you'll appreciate Fjallraven's ingenious second option. On either side of the bag, you'll see a large zip; un-zip these and the entire front of the bag will flip down, allowing you complete access to every nook and cranny of the bag. Inside the top lid is one large zipped pocket for a map, compass, snacks or sunglasses. Further storage is provided via a zipped front pocket and and two bottle pockets either side which can be expanded to fit a waterproof jacket or gloves. You also get two zipped pockets on the hipbelt to store snacks, a GPS or a camera. A raincover inside offers further protection when the heavens open, while an ice axe holder allows the bag to be used for winter use in the mountains.

Getting the correct fit for your rucksack is as important as getting the fit right for your boots. A badly fitting pack can inflict misery and discomfort and completely ruin your adventure. This guide is designed to help you get the best fit and comfort from your chosen pack so that carrying all your kit becomes a pleasure and not a chore.

ADJUSTING THE BACK LENGTH

If the pack has an adjustable back length, adjust this to your correct level. Your back length is not related to your height but your torso length. Many packs, and specifically the bigger and more technical packs are available in different back lengths or feature adjustable back systems. Contrary to popular belief, your torso length and not your overall height is the key to getting a well fitted pack. Tall people don’t necessarily have long torsos, just as shorter people don’t always have a short torso length.

Your torso length can be found by measuring from your C7 vertebra (the bony protrusion at the back of your neck when looking down) to the height of your iliac crest (top of your hip bones, where you put your hands on your hips). This measurement will give you an idea of which pack back length to choose.

Once you've got the back length sorted, either by selecting the correct size pack or adjusting the back system, you can begin to follow these simple steps to help achieve a comfortable carry.

LOOSEN OFF ALL STRAPS

Before you start fitting the pack, loosen off all the straps as this will make it easier to get the correct tension later.

TIGHTENING THE HIPBELT

Fasten the backpack hipbelt, the general position is the same as where you’d put your ‘hands on hips’ This area is called the pelvic girdle, and what you can feel when you rest your hand on the area is the bony protuberance, the iliac crest. The iliac crest can support the weight from a pack comfortably, and for sustained periods. The padded section of the hipbelt should encompass this and fit securely.

Tighten the straps so the hipbelt feels secure and held firmly around your body. Ensure that the lumbar pad is centered to your lower back to give you maximum support. Remember that your hips carry most of the weight of the pack, so this should be firm but comfortable.

ADJUSTING THE SHOULDER STRAPS

Next, adjust the shoulder straps, pull them until they start to become snug, but ensure that they are not too tight as to lift the pack off your hips. Remember tightening them will stabilise the pack but will increase pressure over the shoulders. If the back length of the pack is correct the shoulder straps will be flush to your shoulders whilst the hipbelt sits in place comfortably. The point where the shoulder straps attach to the main body of the pack should be roughly half way down your shoulder blades; this ensures  that the shoulder straps rolls evenly over the top of your shoulders to distribute the weight correctly.

FASTENING THE CHEST STRAP

Fasten the chest strap and pull until taut but not tight, the elastic section should not be extended. This helps keep the shoulder straps from catching in your shoulder joints and keeps the stability of the pack when moving over rough ground.

ADJUSTING THE TOP TENSIONERS

Top tensioner straps link the shoulder straps to the top of the pack. When tightened, their main function is to stabilise the top part of the pack. The optimum angle for these straps in 45º, but they will stabilise the load even when horizontal or at a more obtuse angle. Tighten them until you feel the top part of the pack rest against your pack, over tightening them will create excessive pressure on the front of your shoulders.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE TENSIONERS

Side tension straps are linked to the hipbelt. By tightening these straps you can stabilise the load but reduce the hipbelt flexibility. Where balance is critical tightening them can help you feel more secure. However, if you are striding out over easy terrain it’s better to loosen these straps to allow full hip flexibility.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE COMPRESSION STRAPS

Side compression straps come next, pulling these tight does two things: firstly, it stabilises the load, secondly it can lift the lower part of the pack, repositioning the load closer to your back.

ADJUSTMENTS ON THE GO

Following these steps should give you a comfortable but secure fit on your pack. Sometimes adjustments will need to be made on the go depending on the terrain or the load you are carrying. The perfect fit is very much a personal preference so experiment with different tensions on the pack to find what suits you best.
