The Mo EP40 (Custom)

Typically ships within 8 weeks

All our packs are made right here in the Keswick workshop, so we can create custom bags to order (they just take a little longer to build). We’ve designed our bags with the most common use cases in mind, but whether you’re optimising for weight, load or just want a unique colour scheme, the options are yours!

Unfortunately we can’t provide images for every combination of options, and due to the unique nature of the bags, we can’t accept returns on custom packs. 

If you’re looking for something even more specific, then we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Just get in touch.

Description

It took us 12,000 miles of hiking to design our perfect backpack: the Mo - a lightweight, fully featured load hauler, purpose built to support you on your next adventure.

We designed The Mo to suit the average thru hiker using modern, lightweight gear, with a base weight of up to 10kg/22lbs. We use lightweight, durable materials that are easily able to cope with heavier loads and heavier use. If you are heading out onto rough and overgrown trails like the CDT or Te Araroa, then the Mo is for you!

With a load capacity of 19kg/42lbs and pack weights starting at just 890g/31.4oz, The Mo won't weigh you down. 

We have recently updated the pack to now include two shoulder pockets and a bottom pocket as standard.

Comes with 4 adjusters that tighten by pulling inwards allowing you to dial in the perfect fit. 

Plastic Frame with removable Alloy stay
Removable frame sheet made of 1mm thick plastic with a sewn-in 12mm / ½" alloy bar. The frame for a medium torso length weighs 91g of plastic, and 58g of alloy.

Padded back panel
Uses shaped 8mm closed cell foam. Can be removed when the pack is empty for a 25g weight reduction.

S-shaped shoulder straps
Sewn using our own laminated 10mm foam, durable 210d Robic Extreema face fabric and breathable, soft 3mm spacer mesh.

Lumbar pad
Made with 10mm EVA foam and 3mm thick spacer mesh.

Roll top closure 
The closure has a 15mm vertical side compression. The roll top can also be clipped together at the top (dry bag style) and the side compression clipped around the front of the bag to aid carrying snowshoes or maybe a huge packs of chips etc.

Z side elastics
Great for securing trekking poles, tent poles or drying your socks.

Front zig-zag elastic
Removable and designed to be able to store a folded Z-rest or assist with air drying your clothes.

Side elastic with Lineloc
These are there to secure a trekking pole or tent poles when stored in the side pocket..

Sternum Strap
Elasticated and height adjustable.

Ice Axe loop
Sewn-in loop to easily connect an ice axe or walking poles.

Custom

Shoulder pockets
Super stretchy and big enough to hold most smartphones, a day’s worth of snacks or a 700ml water bottle. The elastic is fixed and, owing to its clever design, does not need a tensioner.

Bottom pocket
Easy-access bottom pocket with trash port made with Dyneema stretch fabric.

Large front pocket
The Dyneema stretch fabric pocket can hold 5L. It has a diagonal opening.

The Bullet Net front pocket is taller (can hold 10L) and straight across at the top with an adjustable elastic cord for closure. Great for being able to air-dry wet gear and see where everything is!

Side pockets
Two 2.5L forward-facing, deep and low side pockets. Each one is big enough to keep 2 x 1L Smartwater bottles steady, yet low enough to reach whilst the pack is worn.

The Mo

Lightweight design. No compromise.

It took us 12,000 miles of hiking to design our perfect backpack: the Mo – a lightweight, fully featured load hauler, purpose built to support you on your next adventure.

Built with

EcoPak EPX200

Durable and lightweight, EPX200 is a recycled 200 denier face fabric with eco DWR finish, blue 45 degree cross ply and white recycled 70 denier backing fabric. 

The EPX200 is our choice for The Atom+ due to its eco credentials, waterproof qualities, light weight and added durability.

Not too shabby on the eye either.

Good to know

Can it fit a Bear Can?

Most bear cans will not fit inside our EP30 packs, but you can rig it on top.

For larger packs (EP40, U40 and above) a BV450 will fit with the base to your back or a BV500 will fit vertically with a little room at the side for a stuffsack.  

How long will it take to make?

Making great things takes time! Our lead time lets you know our estimated production time frame, this will change depending on demand, time of year and staff availability.

The up-to-date lead time can be found at the top of every page on our website and is relevant for all unfulfilled custom orders on our books.

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping rates are calculated at checkout based on your delivery information.

If you live in a remote location, we may occasionally need to charge a small extra surplus for shipping. This will be calculated when we ship the pack.

Customers outside the UK will not be charged the 20% VAT included in almost all of our prices, but you may be subject to local tax and import duties.
