The backpack is the ideal companion on the mountain for every hiker and outdoor fan. Even the hunters and gatherers were on the road with handmade carrying frames and there you can find the origin of the backpack. In the past, the backpack was mainly used in the military field. Much later, the carrying bag for the back developed through the practical and functional design to the daily companion on the way to school, work or just on the mountain.
At Kohla there are six different groups of backpacks, each adapted to different users. Both in everyday life, for sports activities to travel Kohla offers the ideal companion. In the category "Alpine / Ski Tour" are backpacks for alpine adventures for summer as well as winter. Backpacks for one to multi-day tours can be found in the "hiking backpacks" group. The "urban series" from Kohla offers everything for office and travel. Practical companions for every day are the "daypacks" from Kohla for the city and small sports activities in everyday life. And for small outdoor fans and explorers there is the category "Kids" with children's backpacks as well as children's carrier.

KOHLA back systems
The AIRO System is a "three-angle" back system that features small ventilation channels and soft padded shoulder straps. This system is featured on the Kohla Alpine, Kids Alpine and Happy Kids backpacks.
AIR FLOW System
AIR FLOW is a "6-point contact system." The inner softness is distributed over the entire size and provides breathability and comfort. The Kohla bike backpacks as well as the daypacks are equipped with the AIR FLOW system.
AIR VENT System
The AIR VENT system guarantees high breathability and optimum comfort on short to medium length hikes. The air-permeable ventilation system with permanently stretched mesh provides a pleasant "no-sweat" feeling on the back. The Kohla hiking backpacks of the series "Track" are equipped with the AIR VENT system and thus offer the best comfort on one to multi-day tours.
AIR LITE System
The AIR LITE system guarantees maximum breathability and high wearing comfort through an ultra-flat back construction. An interplay of perfect balance, weight and comfort. The "Active" hiking backpacks for one-day tours from Kohla are equipped with this back system.
CHANNEL CONTACT System
The CHANNEL CONTACT system is a body contact back system. Ventilation of the back is provided by the lightweight, smooth and different height pads of the back system. It allows a comfortable and balanced wearing on the back without slipping and wobbling, which is very important especially on a ski tour descent. The CHANNEL CONTACT is thus used in the alpine backpacks and thus offers the best comfort during alpine adventures.
Depending on the area of use and comfort requirements, the backpacks of the Kohla collection are made of different materials.
200D Dobby Nylon Fabric
The main material used is the 200D Dobby Nylon Fabric material. The triple PU coating makes this material strong, flexible and extremely durable.
400D Dobby Nylon Fabric
The Kohla backpacks from the category "Alpine/Ski Tour" have to fulfill other essential criteria according to their field of use. For this reason, the 400D Dobby Nylon Fabric is used here, which has a 1500mm water column and is 100% water repellent.
200er Dobby mit Aluula Fabric
200 Dobby and Aluula Fabric are sewn together in the Kohla Space model. This new technology allows for a whole new way of joining as well as fusing fabrics, making it ideal for the Kohla ski touring race backpack. No glue. No outgassing. No fumes.
