Mammut’s Trion Nordwand 38L backpack | Review

Optimal comfort combined with groundbreaking technology – that’s what the Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack represents. In a world of challenging outdoor adventures, where sustainability and functionality matter more than ever, Mammut introduces this rugged, thoughtfully designed backpack.

The Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack is part of Mammut’s Nordwand series. A notable feature of the Nordwand series is the use of high-quality and durable materials that are made for rugged environments. Inspired by the famous Eiger Nordwand, one of the world’s toughest climbs, the Nordwand Series captures the spirit of demanding expeditions.

Wearing Comfort and Advanced Technology

When unpacking the Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack, the careful construction immediately caught my attention. The adjustable shoulder straps and the advanced back system provide a comfortable fit that adjusts to my body. However, it’s important to note that the backpack’s frame itself isn’t adjustable. Given my height of 1 meter 86, the backpack fits perfectly.

Additionally, the backpack comes with a breathable back panel. Mammut has introduced new technology that allows air to circulate well, noticeably reducing sweating. This makes it extremely comfortable, especially during challenging activities.

Made by performers for performance

The Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack was made with the help of famous Swiss athletes like Dani Arnold, Nicolas Hojac, and Stephan Siegrist. This partnership has resulted in a backpack that’s specifically designed to meet the needs of mountain climbers. Mammut offers the Trionwand backpack in two versions: one is 38 liters and good for longer mountain trips with more gear, and the other is 28 liters and great for faster, lighter mountain adventures.

Ultimate test on Gran Paradiso

To truly assess the performance of the Mammut Trionwand, I brought the backpack with me to Gran Paradiso National Park. This area is known for its tough terrain and unpredictable weather, which provided the perfect setting to test the backpack. The total weight tested during hiking and climbing activities ranged from 10 to 13 kg.

It’s clear that this backpack was designed with mountaineering in mind, featuring reinforced attachment points that make it easy to secure essential gear. Another aspect that caught my attention is the backpack’s ski attachment, which can be quite useful for skiers who enjoy mountain touring. Another feature that truly stood out to me is the use of durable Polyamide, which ensures that the backpack is truly resistant to wear.During the ascent of Gran Paradiso, I faced sharp rocks at the summit, and to my surprise, there were no indications of damage or wear.

The harness system consists of a padded hip belt and shoulder straps, as well as an elasticated chest strap. I felt really free to move because the material feels light and sporty. The chest strap has little pockets on both sides where you can easily keep snacks or a water bottle.

Unfortunately, the Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack does not include a rain cover. An integrated rain cover would have been a useful addition to protect the backpack from unexpected rain showers. Furthermore, the backpack is equipped with a top compartment that contains two lockable pockets: one on the outside and one on the inside. These compartments are perfect for securely storing personal valuables. The backpack is also equipped with a rope fixing strap on top,making it even more practical during your climbs.


In conclusion, the Mammut Trion Nordwand 38-liter backpack was even better than I thought it would be. It’s really strong, comfortable, and smartly designed – perfect for my upcoming mountain trips. The Trion Nordwand costs 170 euros, which isn’t the cheapest, but you’re definitely getting a lot for your money.

The Mammut Trionwand 38 liters is the backpack for mountaineers and adventurers looking for durability, functionality and comfort.

Ik breng mijn tijd graag door in de buitenlucht. Sinds een aantal jaar ben ik begonnen met volgen van verschillende klim cursussen bij de Nederlandse Klim- en Bergsport Vereniging (NKBV). Hierbij ligt de focus vooral op alpinisme. Voor mij is de juiste gear cruciaal om uiteindelijk de top van een berg te bereiken.
