If you spend months travelling from place to place, the robust Jack Wolfskin Hobo King 85 Rucksack keeps everything that you might need while working and travelling well organised and securely stowed.
Tickets, snacks and the like can be kept handy in the front and side pockets, while the main compartment and base compartment provide plenty of room for your clothing and sleeping bag. Clean clothes and dirty washing are easy to keep apart thanks to the practical sub-divided inner compartment.
Whether you're trekking through the mountains of New Zealand or walking to the station, the X-transition suspension system delivers great carry comfort; it was designed specifically for heavy loads. You can keep your water bottle handy in the specially designed fold out waist belt pocket. At the airport, stow the shoulder straps and waist belt to avoid damage in transit. And after landing you can grab your Hobo King 85 backpack by the handy carry loops and hoist it off the baggage carousel.
Detachable compression straps give you the option of attaching your sleeping mat or compressing the contents if the pack is not full. If you want to leave your backpack in the hostel while you go out and explore the city, you cn use the detachable lid compartment as a shoulder bag. The world map inside the pack lets you draw up your own personal bucket list while you're waiting for your connection. Where will you go next?
The Jack Wolfskin Hobo King 85 Pack is the largest backpack in their Frontier series. Like all the products in the series, it was inspired by the hobo lifestyle. These North American itinerant workers travelled across the country - often on freight trains - scraping a living by doing temporary jobs. Their luggage had to be tough and was often cleverly designed to suit these travellers' needs. Jack Wolfskin have incorporated these ideas into the bags and packs in the series. And here's an interesting fact: the Hobo King is crowned every year in the state of Iowa. See you there, maybe?
