The brand major waiver presentations. The Kea was developed in the eyes of theKata, one of the most respected for rock climbing, mountaineering and trekking intensive activities like “overnight”. Impresses with your comfort, versatility and high impermeability, combined with the technology employed in your construction.
At first, I confess that I was disappointed with the weight of the backpack, becauseI was hoping for something a little lighter by 37 litres capacity. By way of comparison, my Axios 50 (also of Arc’Teryx) has larger capacity, but weighs 300 g. The volumetric capacity of the same surprised me and was the first positive point I noticedin comparison to others he had seen. The main body is great and ensures the Organization of major items for an overnight stay. The quality of the materials is alsoa noticeable point and wins the cordura fabric which gives impermeability to the set, along with reinforced seams. The sides of the bag bring own compression straps with double function: hold/stabilize the load and carry walking sticks or other items. To complete, buckles in polyamide guarantees a good support structure. Arc’Teryx Kea 37

No, only the lower side pockets in mesh to carry canteens. I found a good balcony of the mark, since the two I had with side pockets, never used the same. The main compartment is divided vertically inside, assisting in the Organization and separation of the items by category. Has no opening for zipper bottom; Another good idea, because the ancients were always closed.
The lid carries two large pockets, both with good space for storing various items.Waterproof zippers are one bright spot, as well as opening for hydration system that can be placed in the main compartment and arrested for a quick hitch. It’s worth pointing out that the lid is fixed, so cannot be highlighted. I thought she could be a bit more concave, to “embrace” the better the body of the bag (I realized thatmost backpacks of Arc’Teryx has this small defect).
The barrigueira, anatomically structured and with adjustments, is Thermo-moldable and adjusts to your body as you go; comfortable is a weak Word to describe the feeling that barrigueira offers. Two pockets in mesh can be used to carry a cell phone, digital camera, a small knife, cereal bars, etc. The handles are well structured and coated with the same barrigueira and material side, giving comfort and good dissipation of sweat. Have adjustable chest strap (length and height) and removable, tension belts straps that stabilize the load and position adjustment. They also have points for objects such as GPS and hydration system hose.
The side deserves a note and is the strong point of the equipment. Built in Evon Foam, the backpack fits and accompanies the shape of your body with each step, getting always close and pasted on their backs. This construction allows good airflow between the bag and your body, considerably reducing the temperature and perspiration. The support system in aluminium 6061, can transfer the weight to the barrigueira, making the bag much more comfortable.
Anyway, it was exactly what I was looking for to mountaineering and my wanderings of a few days. I managed to reduce the weight, size and increase the quality of my equipment; wanted a good backpack to follow this evolution and found on Kea37 all the features I was looking for. Materials and construction combine excellentreliability, lightness and comfort to all.
