Combining outdoors hardiness with everyday usability – the Haglöfs Katla 35 Rucksack is stylish, versatile and will suit a day in the woods as well as urban adventures.
Storage space and pockets galore define the Katla tarpaulin backpack. It's perfectly suited for shorter outdoors expeditions – constructed from tough tarpaulin, and complete with gear loops and side compression straps to make the most of its capacity. Its Interact suspension system provides comfort and support wherever you are, and there's a key holder in the lid to enable you to organise yourself.
When you're back at home, though, the tarpaulin can be cleaned off – and a padded laptop bag switches the function to an urban adventure essential. If you're simply scaling the stairs to your desk or planning some work on the move, it won't let you down. Plus it's more than stylish enough for the city.
Haglöfs was founded over a century ago in, Torsang, Sweden, by a forester’s son named Wiktor Haglöf, who designed and assembled a backpack for local workers. From those humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the largest suppliers of outdoor clothing, and equipment in the world.
Each Haglöfs product is carefully designed to work in harmony with another, be it backpack, sleeping back, boot or clothing. Versatility is key; after all, it doesn’t matter if running a boggy UK trail, sending technical alpine climbs, or trekking in Patagonia; whatever you’re doing, it’s more enjoyable with kit you can trust.
Haglöfs core values of reliability, curiosity and pride are what sets it apart from other outdoor brands, and helps it to win over the not-so-easily-charmed customers. Reliability means that you can count on Haglöfs products to perform and last. Curiosity speaks to the company’s compulsion to constantly push forward, to innovate and evolve. Pride is about a true passion for everything they do, a passion perpetuated by the men and women who work for Haglöfs, themselves outdoor enthusiasts and former professionals.
