TRAIL BACKPACKS, QUALITY

Irreproachable on the quality of our sports equipment, we offer you the best range of backpacks for running. You will be able to store your belongings in the different compartments and the bags are so light that you won't feel them when you're on the trail. Alpinstore tells you more about trail running.

THE PRACTICE OF THE TRAIL

The word trail is a shortened version of the term "trail running" since it means running on trails in a natural environment. Trail is simply running in the mountains. Since the 90s when the first races were organized, this sport has diversified since it can be practiced in different forms such as :

- The Ultra trail: running with a distance of at least 100km. In Haute Savoie for example, there is the ultra trail around Mont Blanc.
- The Skyrunning: running in high mountains that must exceed at least once the 2000m altitude during the course.
- The trail short to medium distance : running that includes a maximum of 30km for short trails and can go up to 65km with a minimum altitude difference of 1000m and maximum of 3000m, for medium distance trails.
- The Snow trail: running race that takes place in winter, in the snow.

Alpinstore offers brands of bags that seem to perform well whatever the practice: Raidlight; Black Diamond; Ultimate Direction; Scott; Camelbak; CMP ...

A RECENT PRACTICE WHICH ALREADY HAS ITS REFERENCES

Whether they are French or not, these legends of the sport are known and recognized worldwide thanks to their incredible performance. If you are on this page, it is undoubtedly that you know, Mr. Kilian Jornet, the Spanish "ultra terrestrial". This little man who has already won everything, excels in all mountain disciplines.

The Frenchman François d'Haene who is very appreciated by the community is indeed the double winner of the ultra trail of Mont Blanc but also of the ultra trail world tour. Without forgetting Xavier Thevenard, who won three races over 100km and the ultra trail of Mont Blanc.

WHICH BACKPACK WILL YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR TRAIL?

As you may have understood, the trail takes place in the mountains over long distances, which is why it is important to be well equipped. Whatever your activity and when the sun is out, it is very important to stay hydrated. On the other hand it is difficult to stop regularly to drink, when the primary goal is to cover kilometers.

An ideal trail backpack should therefore have :

- From a special water pocket compartment. This is where the hydration bag makes sense. Many backpacks are designed for this purpose and therefore have a special compartment for the water pouch. Have a look at Camelbak Raidlight. Some brands such as Ultimate Direction Camp; Scott; Kinetik even call it a hydration vest.
- From a Spacious main compartment so you can store your clothes, whether it's your spare t-shirt, a vest/pullover or a raincoat.
- For even better performance over long distances, there are backpacks with stretch pockets on the sides...who welcome your gourds. Once your hydration pocket is finished, don't panic, you still have the water bottles! Raidlight for example, offers you this option.
- Adjustable straps to limit friction in the shoulders and back. When the backpack is in place on your back, the straps play an indispensable role in ensuring optimal comfort.
A pocket on the waist belt to keep energy bars close to your hands. Feeling a little peckish? Everything is within reach with CMP for example.

If you do not want to load your back with a bag, then opt for the trail belt. This one is also very powerful, is ideal for shorter distances. It allows you to leave light, while taking with you, the bare essentials. Raidlight; Ultimate Direction; Scott; Camelbak or CMP offers you a wide selection of them.

Alpinstore has told you everything about trail running so don't hesitate and go ahead and see our equipment designed for this sport. Believe us, a good trail bag will make you gain in performance, whatever the distance covered so make the right choice.
