APCO have released a new and improved version of their reversible rucksack / harness. The Chairbag Integral II is designed for hiking and long cross country flights, and as such has been made for comfort and safety, with many features including lightweight quick-lock buckles, an integral reserve pouch and airbag which extends high up to protect the pilot’s neck.
Updates include an improved carry system with ergonomic back support and compression straps to keep the contents close to the body, making hiking with it much more comfortable. There are now additional easy-access extrenal pockets on the waist belt, and walking pole holders.
Despite all of this, thanks to a new type of cloth the Chairbag Integral II is actually even lighter and more durable than its predecessor, weighing just 2.5 kg (without seat plate). A lightweight carbon seat plate will add 200g to this; a wooden one, 450g.
The chairbag is in stock with dealers now, and is offered in black and blue or black and red.
