Altmont Original

Alpine Heritage. Urban Functionality.

The Altmont Collection of urban-style backpacks now offers increased functionality, smart new materials and even stronger design components. For multi-purpose organization, the highly-structured interiors feature innovative panels and pockets to safeguard any kind of item or electronic device. Re-designed shoulder straps and back padding offer extra comfort, whilst the polyester fabric with a PU layer protects against water and abrasion. And for those who always like to have their Original Swiss Army Knife at hand, this iconic product can be slipped into its own hooded pouch made from tough weather-proof neoprene.

Backpacks are becoming increasingly popular with today’s fast-moving men and women. They need an all-round bag that looks good in a business setting and can carry them through the day, whatever the occasion. Visibly appealing, these backpacks are enhanced by the Victorinox Cross & Shield logo as well as a smart hexagon pattern newly designed by the brand. The motif offers a stylish contrast to the featured mono-colors of black, red and blue. And, of course, the Altmont Collection meets today’s high demands in terms of organization and protection.

The owner’s laptop is inserted into its easily accessible padded compartment and essentials are placed in the dedicated zippered mesh pocket. He or she can tuck away a pen and business cards in the special holders, attach keys to the fob and, for extra security, add a name and address to the tag, symbolically in the shape of the Original Swiss Army Knife. The Deluxe Laptop Backpack provides a second tier of accessory pockets for items such as mobile phones and battery packs, as well as an elastic USB-device holder. For business trips away, a passport can be hidden in a secret space at the back of the pack.

When designing the new collection, the teams at Victorinox Travel Gear also focused on a high level of comfort. The shoulder straps are extremely ergonomic, featuring wings to adjust the pressure according to the required length. They even allow for items such as a headset to be attached. To ensure the wearer’s back is kept cool and clothes remain un-creased, channels in the back padding offer an elevated air exchange. For extra ease and convenience, the Deluxe Backpack features sternum straps and a pass-through for wheeled luggage.

A total of eight styles make up the collection, including backpacks, a sling bag and a shoulder bag.

The Altmont Original Collection offers men and women all over the world advanced and iconic solutions for their everyday urban activities.
