MTB Backpack Guide

A good backpack should make you forget you’re carrying extra luggage. Depending on your plans and preferences, ION offers backpack models of different sizes, with or without protection and hydration systems.

DO I NEED A BACKPACK FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING?

If you are going for long tours or want to pack drinks, food, and other equipment you should consider getting a backpack for your biking trips. The backpack will distribute loads evenly on your back and will make carrying all this extra stuff a pleasant experience. If you want to bring just water and some smaller tools, a hip bag may already be sufficient for you. Lightweight backpacks with up to 8L of storage offer additional space for jackets or extra layers. On enduro tours, we recommend choosing a backpack with back protection. That makes wearing protection vests unnecessary. On top, you can bring all the things you need to remote locations, from weather protection to tools, maps, snacks, and spare parts.

Especially for rough downhills and technical, steep trails body armor is often necessary. The Scrub Backpack has an integrated SAS-Tec protection plate, making extra layers obsolete.

WHICH BACKPACK SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Backpacks come in different sizes according to body height. That is only relevant for backpacks that cover your entire back (hip bags come in one size). Additionally, you will find the volume of the backpack given in liters. 14L is enough for a day pack size, while 1-3L will provide space for the essentials.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BACKPACK?

Most of the time it is enough to brush off dirt with a soft brush or damp cloth. For deeper cleaning please follow the instructions below:

  • Do not wash backpacks in the washing machine.

  • Dust or light dirt can simply be wiped off with a damp cloth.

  • Coarser dirt can be removed with warm water or soaked in a water bath if necessary.

  • Do not use aggressive detergents to avoid destroying the coating. pH-neutral soap or shower gel is best.

  • Squeeze foam parts in the water to remove salt marks.

  • Allow your backpack to air dry.

  • Waterproof your backpack regularly – best after cleaning when it is not yet completely dry
