If you spend months travelling from place to place, the robust Hobo King 85 Rucksack keeps everything that you might need for work and travel well organised and securely stowed. Tickets, snacks and other little items can be kept handy in the front and side pockets, while the main compartment and base compartment have plenty of room for your clothing and sleeping bag. Clean clothes and dirty laundry 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 back system lets you carry your kit in comfort and was designed specifically for heavy loads. You can keep your water bottle handy in the special fold-out pouch on the waist belt. At the airport, stow the shoulder straps and waist belt behind the protective cover to avoid damage in transit. And after landing, just grab your Hobo King 85 Rucksack by the carry handles and haul it off the baggage carousel. Detachable compression straps give you the option of attaching your camping mat or compressing the contents if the pack is not full. If you want to leave your pack in the hostel while you go out and explore the city, you can use the detachable lid compartment as a shoulder bag. The world map inside the pack lets you compile your own personal bucket list while you're waiting for your connection. Where will you go next? The Hobo King 85 Rucksack is the largest backpack in the Frontier series. Like all the products in the series, it is inspired by the hobo lifestyle. These North American itinerant workers travelled across the country–often on freight trains–scraping a living from casual jobs. Their luggage had to be tough and was often cleverly designed and customised to suit these travellers' needs. We have incorporated these ideas into the bags and packs in the series. And here's an interesting fact: the King of the Hobos is crowned every year in the state of Iowa. See you there,
