The Guidepost 75 l backpack is a Thule, a Swedish company specialized in various equipment, such as bike, sports racks, carts to transport children, car seats, bike trailers and etc. In other words, is a brand that aims to carry all that matters with security, ease and style of life. The brand is a big reference in the United States and Europe.
Recently, the Thule released their backpacks techniques, divided into four lines: Capstone, Versant, Stir and Guidepost — with 15 l models the 88L — and brought a series of innovations to the world of trekking and also for lovers of outdoor trip. And this review is focused only on backpack Guidepost 75 l.
The Backpack Thule Guidepost 75 l
Manufacturer’s Description: Perfect for an expedition/trip of up to a week, the Thule Guidepost 75 l has the exclusive TransHub Suspension System. This technology consists of a pivot hinged on barrigueira that allows the bag keep track of all your body movements, offering a perfect fit. The cover of the bag becomes a smart and functional backpack to take you to the Summit.
The Test of Guidepost 75 l
I received the Guidepost 75 l in the official launch of backpacks, event that occurred in August 2015. Therefore, the equipment was tested for 1 year, being put to the test in long sailings and exposed in different scenarios here in Brazil. The backpack was also used in outdoor and travel in several mochilões.
Barrigueira with articulating pivot (proved very effective during the trekking)
Width adjustment handles
The cover of the bag turns into a real backpack 24 l attack
Compartment for hydration system centered
Side pockets with inclination of 45 degrees.
Has no built-in raincoat
The Thule Guidepost 75 l came with baggage. Is a backpack that is here to stay and to compete for attention with the already consolidated brands in the market. It is definitely an excellent choice, ideal for those seeking new and perfect for anyone looking for a high performance backpack. The Guidepost 75 can be quietly used on expeditions, treks, tours and travel to backpacking. Fits also say that this Backpack was elected by the magazine Go Outside the cargo of 2015 better.
As I mention in the video, the Guidepost 75 l has many features. Is a relatively lightweight backpack (2.8 Kg), has your main opening shaped like a “J” — it took me a while to get used to it, but found it efficient. The zíppers are great and easy to handle even when the freighter is quite full of equipment. The absence of a raincoat was the great sin committed by the brand.
Note: Access to main compartment makes both the top of the bag as the zipper in “J”. In the video of the review was not very clear.
The pivot system articulated in barrigueira is the high point of the backpack. I felt it left me looser during the trekking and served well the your role: eased the load on my shoulders with efficiency. Other than that, this system increases comfort and facilitates movement on the mountain.
The adjustments of height and width of shoulders make the backpack to be ideal for anyone, but who don’t know how to make all the adjustments you may wonder or find uncomfortable. Therefore, it must be configured for each user. Another point to highlight is the transformation Pack of attack from the head of the freighter. It’s impressive. Used in various situations and there’s not much to say, perfectly meets. It’s definitely two bags in one.
However, the Thule, which was known as a brand of accessories for cars and bicycles, now also ensures a high standards and excellence in backpacks, but with a value well above the market. The product has the approximate cost of R$ 2,300.00.
