THE NORTH FACE : PRIMERO 85

FOR SALE $350 AUD
(RRP: $649.95 AUD | NZ Price: $699.95 NZD)


I'm selling this backpack because I accidentally bought 2 online, but i only need one ... so im trying to get my money back...

here's a description of the backpack if you're not familiar with it:

(More information can be found at:
http://www.thenorthface.com.au/secureshop/product.php?ProductID=609)



OVERVIEW:

Drawing upon years of pack design, The North Face gave the Primero 85 Backpack a unique back panel and frame system that provides both excellent support and flow-through venting. Both the back panel and waist-belt use injection molded EVA and perforated foam to allow top-notch ventilation for comfort in the hottest of conditions. The North Face's 7075 aluminum X-Radial suspension allows the Primero 85 Backpack to move fluidly with your body, yet still provide support for loads over 60lbs. Thanks to a large 5200cu inch volume and weather-resistant, durable fabrics, this pack easily holds and protects everything you need for a week in the wilderness. and ensures a cool, comfortable extended trek.


PRIMERO TECHNOLOGY:

The Primero series of packs from The North Faceฎ embodies virtually everything we have come to know about pack design and construction. It begins with X Radial™ suspension, which pivots to complement the body’s natural movements. From there, the back panel has been built from EVA injection-molded foam, the same durable and comfortable materials used in footwear. EVA essentially self-heals when it is cut or indented, quickly regaining its shape and continuity. Truly unique to the backpacking world, extensive testing shows that it functions superbly when left uncovered: airflow channels ventilate freely, it washes easily, and it will not absorb odors. Finally, a nearly invincible, high denier fabric and reinforced panels delivers ruggedness and weather resistance that will withstand backcountry abuse.

And I thought this kind of 'I'm-better-than-you-'cos-I-got-a-better-deal-than-you-but-I'm-not-telling-you-how' mentality only existed over at the ski.com.au forums.

yeah i'm just asking where the guy was getting charged so much. was at a TNF training weekend in plas y brenin almost two years ago, we tested the primero range and it wasn't that expensive even then. maybe they've made revolutionary changes to it since then. i'll compare some stats. but that kind of money would probably be better spent on something like arcteryx Naos. Bombproof. There ain't no secret or science to shopping around. Even I can access the entire retail world with my fingertips right now and i'm propper rubbish on computers.

Makes sense - sorry for appearing harsh. Maybe the seller needed a pack in a hurry for a trip at short notice, and did not have the time to shop any further?

I just read a review for that Arcteryx Naos; I cannot imagine it being bombproof - wouldn't metal edged skis/crampons/ice tools/billys/burred lobes of cams/off-track walking through banksia scrub and scraping along coarse granite in constrictions wear at it, as with any other pack?

we put a naos (already with a few good years and trips behind it) through it's paces last year, and i've got to say i was mightily impressed. Very tough indeed. Using it for crevasse rescue training (throwing a full one in and hauling it out time and time again), testing the roll top lid by jumping on it and trying to submerge it. all sorts of stuff. On days you're not climbing, they make a fine taboggan too! I think getting a crampon, ice screw, bulldog, or similar, to pierce or tear it would have to be a deliberate act, or at least done with force.
It must be said that i myself took along my trusty Podsac, which, while not waterproof, is a very tough piece of kit too.

having said all that, i apologize to the original author of this thread for diverting your topic, and i hope you can sell your pack. (and they are a very nice pack).

Hi man,

well I bought it for a better price, but not cheap i gotta say... and I've checked in paddy palling and Northface Australian websites and that's how much they sell them for...
