Developed with a team of professional Adventure Racers, The MtnHaus Octans 40 Rucsac is Team Orion's race pack. Adventure races can last five days and cover 530km, so kit has to withstand the rigours of any adventure, but when you're unsupported every ounce of weight counts.
Team Orion were looking for a race sack that performed at the highest level. Their feedback on every sample that was produced demanded perfection from the end product:

"We're being brutally honest with our feedback, but it should help you to design the best gear in the world"

The rucsac was rigorously tested by members of the Adventure Racing team from disciplines including running, hiking and biking. In order to give the most rounded feedback possible, samples were tested both empty and fully loaded.
High performance for adventure sport: no adjustments, no compromise, no shortcuts. This means a hard wearing pack with a low profile back system to give the closest carry without weighing you down.
