NORDIC 4 – WINTER BACKPACK READY FOR RACING IN EXTREME COLD WEATHER

More info

WHAT’S AMAZING?

The NORDIC 4 is a slim and fast (real) winter backpack for developed for racing and small adventures when XC-skiing, Running and Mountain biking. The pack deliverers 4 liters of storage, including a 2.0L hydration bladder and our revolutionary Thermo Cell insulation technology that eliminates freezing of the drink tube and bite valve even in the most extreme weather conditions.

 

THERMO CELL INSULATION TECHNOLOGY

The Thermo Cell is a multilayer insulation cover that reflects the body heat from physical activities via a thin mesh membrane on the inside of the pocket, where the drink tube and bite valves is being stored. A cold & wind proof cover shields the pocket from the outside.

 

Used in this way the body heat feeds the Thermo Cell with thermal energy and prevents the drink tube and bite valve from freezing.

 

This technology has been successfully tested in -26 °C / -15 °F cold temperature, with a final result measured at +19 °C / +56 °F inside the Thermo Cell pocket where the hydration tube was stored.

The NORDIC is also equipped with a thermal function for the hydration bladder itself. During the winter, many athletes heat their hydration before the activity to avoid drinking ice-cold hydration. Therefore, NORDIC comes with a hydration bladder that can withstand temperatures up to +60 °C / +140 °F and with an outer layer based on the same technology as Thermo Cell on the front of the backpack.

 

Heat the hydration to about +35 °C / +95 °F and it stays above +7,5 °C / +46 °F for at least 4 hours. This is the test results in an extreme cold weather of -26 °C / -15 °F.

 

  • Exterior Outer layer: Insulation cover for drink tube & bite valve. Stops all wind speed and keeps the cold out
  • Exterior Inner layer: Heat reflective material with the function of reflecting up to 100% thermal radiation
  • Inside: Tightly sealed mesh membrane that permits maximum body heat

 

HARNESS SYSTEM FOR THE PERFECT BOUNCE FREE INDIVIDUAL FIT

The NORDIC 4 is designed with the NDM 4-point harness system that deliver a perfect bounce free individual fit. The stretch in the chest straps expands along with the chest during physical exertion, allowing a constant tight and compliant fit.

 

The shoulder straps are ergonomically designed for an even and smooth distribution of the backpack over the shoulders. Together, the chest and shoulder straps form this unique NDM 4-point front system that is connected with a rotatable quick-release buckle that securely holds the entire backpack in place.

HOW DO I FIND MY MEASUREMENT?

We measure the size of our NDM 1.0 harness by using the "Chest Circumference" measurement. It's very easy to check your measurement and match it to the size of each pack. You simply measure 360 degrees around your chest under your breast (See picture for reference).

 

Torso Size: 41-55cm / 33-43”

 

 

HOW DO I USE THE HARNESS?

When you set up your product for the first time the harness will be set on the outer size loop option (the size loops are located where the stretch connect to the backpack). If a smaller size is needed make sure to use the inner size loop. After checking the size loop setting you start by using the horizontal velcro straps. Simply grab the velcro strap on both sides at the same time, breathe in and set the strap where it fits.

 

 

Step 2: After setting the horizontal velcro straps you might have a perfect fit already. If you're for example a women with a larger chest or use a chest protector you might also need to change the vertical velcrop straps. If that's needed simply grab the velcro straps and set them at a goog lenght. For women we recommend using these straps at a lower strap setting. We also recommend placing the straps underneath the breast for better comfort for women.
