KOALA GEAR - JOEY BACKPACK
JOEY - The everyday backpack that gives your body a break.
JOEY is made to carry your life and offers ample pockets for organizing the small things in the most intuitive locations.
JOEY is ideal for those who appreciate utilitarian design delivered with style. The handful of pockets, make organizing your essentials effortless, and the three-dimensional suspension system can be adjusted to hold weight in balance.
While designing this masterpiece, we placed great importance on durability and only used water-repellent fabrics as well as multi-award winning components from Fidlock®, YKK®, Nifco®, and Duraflex®.
The perfect balance between ergonomics and accessibility. Tailored to your body, JOEY's impeccable weight distribution system married with a modern design, makes for today's leading urban backpack.
Conventional everyday backpacks are uncomfortable. The main reason for this is that they direct the weight away from your body. JOEY is different!
A full contact, super ergonomic back suspension system, fully directs the weight towards your hips and lays JOEY right against your back.
A contoured hip pad absorbs the weight and reduces horizontal movements when walking or running. Load lifter straps and stow away hip and sternum straps, provide maximum comfort.
Multi-directional airflow tunnels provide pleasant ventilation and keep your back dry at all times.
Anti Pickpocket Design.
Your valuables are safe. By teaming up with Fidlock®, a German fastener manufacturer, JOEY is the pick-pockets’ nightmare. Strong magnets make the Fidlock® fastener easy to close but the secure snap functionality ensures a continuously high locking force. Once you feel you'll understand the essence of strength and durability.
Another unique anti-theft benefit is that your passport has its own hidden pocket facing towards your back, which can be accessed without taking off JOEY – perfect while traveling, easy access, anti-theft.
