Live from OutDoor 2007: Hot news from OutDoor 2007: We´ve just seen the hottest new development from The North Face - a new back system inspired by Crocs sandals!
"We wanted to know what to do with these shoes and what better than to melt them down and use them for our new back system," says TNF gear expert Henry Hoogenveen.
The new Primero packs use the same hard-wearing EVA material as the multi-coloured sandals to provide a significant air gap and flow behind the back. It can also ´self-heal´if it gets damaged, washes easily and shares the same anti-microbial qualities that has made it such a hit in the world of footwear.
In addition, the rucksacks also feature a innovative X-Radial suspension which pivots to complement your body´s natural movements.
The Primero will be available Feb 2008 and will cost 180 quid for the 70lt pack and 170 British Pounds Sterling for the 60lt version.
