Entering the backpack even in an unfavorable situation

The rear entrance to the backpack allows you to comfortable opening and entry into the main compartment without the backpack having to be placed in the snow. This will avoid sticking snow and dirt on the 3D back system fabric pillows.

The position of the upper handle allows entry into the main compartment of the backpack without having to be removed from the back, just turn the backpack from the back to the front (without opening the waist belt) and then open the zipper of the main compartment - this tilts forward depending on the zip opening.

Another advantage of this placement of the loop is appreciated by climbers, the backpack can be clipped to the rope facing the rock while maintaining access to the main chamber.
