The AirZone Z 25 features the Fixed AirZone carry system, which uses tensioned mesh and a large cut out space to reduce weight and allow air to move freely between the pack and the wearer’s back. A zipped clamshell opening gives easy access to the main compartment, and side compression straps keep the contents stable and secure as you move. A zipped top pocket, key clip, and front stash pocket help organise your gear.
Hydration compatible, the AirZone Z 25 includes stretch water bottle side pockets, TipGripper walking pole attachments, and rain cover. Featuring the best ventilation technology, you can carry your kit in comfort with the AirZone Z 25.
AIRZONE FIXED CARRY SYSTEM
The AirZone Fixed is our most advanced air-back carry system to date. AirZone technology features tensioned mesh and a large cut out space, reducing weight and allowing air to move freely between the pack and the wearer’s back. The AirZone Fixed has a decreased amount of contact mesh to maximise breathability and air flow. The shoulder harness is turned for increased comfort and the contact mesh is even softer for a comfortable carry. AirZone ventilated packs keep you cool and comfortable whether you’re moving fast in the hills, on a long hike, or just out on a hot summer's day, whatever size pack you're carrying.

Having a comfortable pack can be a make or break for your trip. No matter if you're carrying 18kg on a multi-day expedition, or just an extra layer and lunch on a short hill day. Fitting your pack properly takes a little time. But we promise it'll be time well spent.
In this guide, we'll look at how to measure your back length and how to fit your pack.
How to measure your back length
You'll need a tape measure and a friend to help you out with this.
- Place your hands on your hips and tilt your head forwards.
- Ask your friend to measure from the bony bit at the back of your neck (the C7 vertebrae) to where your hands sit on your hips.
- This measurement will give you an idea of which back length to choose.
Fitting your pack in 6 steps
- Loosen all the straps.
- Add a little weight into the pack. 3-4 kilos will do it.
- Put the backpack on your shoulders and do up the hip belt. This should sit over your hip bone.
- Check that the pack is sitting well over your shoulders. It should follow the contour of your upper back. If the hip belt is sitting above your hip or pulling down your shoulders, you'll need to lengthen the back. If it is below your hips or really loose over your shoulders, then shorten the back length.
- Once you're happy with the back length, whilst wearing the pack, tighten the shoulder harness so it is just tight enough. If you grab the straps and pull down and back, your hands should not usually pass your waist.
- Make sure the sternum (chest) strap is in the right place for you and clip together. This should only be 'finger-tight'.
And you're good to go.
It's also a good idea to go through these steps every so often to make sure your pack still fits you well.
