Made on the pattern of time-established ALICE (All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment) pack, the Matilda Backpack from Helikon retains a functionality and gets rid of features proved redundant.

The pack features durable drag and carry handle, two zippered lid pockets, snow collar and a loop field for easy hook-and-loop customisation. To save weight, the backpack is made of the Nylon 210D and Cordura 500D, which allows for a lighter weight, while guaranteeing the durability at critical points.

Furthermore, the pack features zippered hydration compartment and three spacious external pockets, which have a drawstring sleeve and bottom drainage hole and are sewn on the corners, leaving a centre channel capable of carrying long object (e.g. axe or knife).

Presented Matilda Pack also goes with heavy-duty compression straps, firm carrying handle, stiffened and specially shaped padded back, ergonomically designed and adjustable in length padded shoulder straps, as well as removable waist system, which helps to distribute weight evenly throughout the upper body and ensures comfortable carry even for long periods of time. The belt can easily be detached from the rucksack which allows the use of modular weapon belts.

Multiple quick-release buckles allow the backpack to be quickly dropped on the ground when required. The side, top and bottom compression straps allow the backpack to be adapted to the size of carried kit and prevent it from shifting inside the bag, which may cause unnecessary noise, discomfort, and disturbance to the balance. The rucksack gives a possibility to attach additional MOLLE compatible equipment through many robust PALS straps all-round, as well as sewn-in webbing and D-rings on both shoulder straps while four nylon loops placed at the bottom part allows for attachment of sleeping bag.

This robust and all-purpose tactical Matilda Backpack from Helikon is designed for very demanding individuals looking for a roomy and versatile outdoor pack and is an ideal choice for hunting, hiking, survival trips or for any serious bushcraft enthusiast.
