FJORD 36 ACTION PACK AND REMOVABLE CAMERA INSERTS (RCI)

It started with the grand ambition to make the best all-round adventure backpack on the market that allows you to carry precious camera gear safely in any unforgiving conditions. After a year of design, numerous prototypes, testing, and re-design, we are excited to introduce the NYA-EVO FJORD 36 Action Pack (36 liters / 2196 cu inch). 

Welcome to NYA-EVO, designed and tested in the Nordics.

ONE TO DO IT ALL

Hiking, snowboarding, adventure photography, skiing, traveling, and climbing, the FJORD 36 is one Action Pack that does it all. Adaptable to exactly what you need, so can you be a smart and well prepared adventurer.

PROTECTED

The integrated RCI system is engineered to work with the bag so your precious gear is safe from the harshest elements.

TESTED

Proven in the lab and across the Nordics so it won't let you down. 

PEACE OF MIND

Not worrying about your gear means that you can focus on what's important, experiencing life.

CARRY-ON COMPLIANT

The final size of the FJORD 36 was made to be carry-on compliant with most major airlines. Avoid problems and keep your costly gear with you while traveling.

FLIGHT READY

Our adjustable padded RCIs can be formed to perfectly protect your drone and other video equipment.

BACK ENTRY 

We have design engineered into the bag a way to gain access to your gear in a matter of seconds without taking the bag off. Simply undo the chest strap and with the waist belt attachment secured move bag around to the front, unzip the back panel and you're in.

COMPACT URBAN STATE

When you don't have to lug around all your gear tighten the compression straps for a closer body fit, a more relaxed look and greater agility.

SELF STANDING

The majority of outdoor backpacks cannot stay upright and tip over without support. The FJORD 36 base is made of extreme wearing waterproof rubberized fabric (Hypalon) and was designed to support a packed backpack and allow it stand upright on its own.

FLIP THEM

The shoulder straps were designed with a slight curvature for comfort but also usability. The right amount of EVA foam and density allows the straps to stay flipped in place when accessing the rear compartment. 

CLEVER DIVIDER

The divider zips and Velcros into place dividing the gear between the main and RCI compartments. The separation helps you avoid items falling into the RCI section and keeps the two spaces neatly separated.

EXTERNAL GEAR CARRY ATTACHMENT POINTS

Snowboard front | Tripod side or front | Skis side and front diagonal | Multiple ice-axes | Pole | Helmet | Large drone (helmet panel) | Gimbal (helmet panel) 

EXTERNAL NET CARRY

Easily hold your bulky down jackets with the stretch mesh attachment which is also an ideal place to dry out your wet gear.

THOUGHT-OUT ORGANIZATION

A multitude of pockets to organize your journey effectively and efficiently. A roomy front pocket is protective and planned-out with a small drain hole at the bottom so the water of wet gear can escape. A dedicated laptop sleeve that fits up to a 15" MacBook Pro. There is also a stretch fabric zipper hip belt pocket among other access points, providing quick access to your valuables or other small items.

   

THE RCI UNITS, WHERE THIS BAG BECOMES SOMETHING REALLY SPECIAL

The Removable Camera Inserts or RCIs are designed for optimal protection and customization. We understand that camera gear is extremely expensive, which is why our RCIs were engineered and tested to withstand major impacts. They were also designed to fit seamlessly into the FJORD 36, essentially, one was made for the other. The last thing you should worry about while on an epic adventure is if your costly gear will make it safely. 

PACK IT YOUR WAY

You have a choice between three RCI sizes, small, medium and large. The benefit of having all three sizes is the freedom to customize and carry what you want when you want. When using one, the others can be left at home with the lid on to store your other gear. Every outing or assignment is different, be efficient and have the option to take exactly what you need.

To make an impact, we knew we had to pay special attention to the materials and components of the bag. For that reason, every fabric has been purposefully chosen and each buckle is made to withstand immense pressure. The result is an adventure backpack that is made to last and worthy of the demanding professionals that own the FJORD 36.

LAB TESTING

Drop test | Tensile pull test | Hydrostatic pressure test | Fabric | Shoulder strap | Carry handle | Compression strap | Waist strap | RCI D ring | RCI carry handle.

FIELD TESTING

The FJORD 36 Action Pack was used 12 hours a day for 26 consecutive days across the Nordics. Temperatures ranged from 37°F to -18°F (+3°C to -28°c)

FABRIC 

The FJORD 36 uses Nylon 210 Denier Ripstop with a water-repellent coating on the front and a highly water resistant 0.1mm TPU film laminate on the backside. If that wasn't enough, each FJORD 36 Action Pack comes with it's own integrated rain cover that is taped seamed for good measure. 

COMPONENTS 

The FJORD 36 uses highly water-resistant YKK zippers, strength-tested, glove-friendly buckles and glove friendly, lightweight aluminum pullers that give you fantastic control. The Action pack also has a hyper-strong waterproof Hypalon rubber base, which is extremely durable and made to withstand severe abuse.

Yes, this is an extreme adventure backpack, yes, it is a highly adaptive camera backpack, and yes, this is a backpack for mountain bikers, skiers, snowboarders, and ice climbers. More than that, this is a backpack for world travelers, for people that go beyond known routes, for the ones that like to wake up on the edge of a mountain range, this is a backpack for people who want to travel in confidence.

We designed engineered, lab tested, then field tested the NYA-EVO FORD 36 to allow people to go further than they have before, knowing that whatever they’re carrying will travel safely. Grab your Action Pack and experience what’s past your horizon.

The FJORD 36 Action Pack has your back, go ahead, go further.

 HANG WITH US IN HONG KONG

This pledge includes your choice of two FJORD 36 Action Packs, a full RCI set, including a tee and hat. One all-inclusive round-trip flight included to Hong Kong with 3 night / 4 day accommodations.

Along with all that, we will also give you a sneak peak into our future developments and a tour of our factories so you can see how the NYA-EVO FJORD 36 Action Pack is made. If you would like to see Hong Kong and hang out with us this is your pledge. 

SNOWBOARD WITH WORLD CHAMPION SEPPE SMITS

Seppe Smits is a professional snowboarder and has been a supporter of the NYA-EVO FJORD 36 ever since he tested the early prototypes. A Red Bull-sponsored rider, Seppe has won multiple major snowboard competitions throughout his career and is one of the hopefuls for Belgium going into the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

This pledge offers you an all inclusive round trip flight and accommodation at Absolut Park in Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl, Austria (near Salzburg) between the 22nd - 30th of March 2018 (after the conclusion of the Winter Olympics). 

Spend the day with Seppe, then hit the slopes and learn some new tricks one-on-one with the master. Along with the trip, this pledge includes your choice of two FJORD 36 Action Packs, a full RCI set, including a tee and hat. Last but not least, you will also receive the only other Slate version of the FJORD 36 that exists.

Risks and challenges

PRODUCT DUE DILIGENCE
We know what a bummer it is to purchase a bag and receive it super late, so that is why we spent many months finding a second factory capable of producing highly-technical bags such as ours. Being partly located in Hong Kong, we have been dealing with supply chain issues for almost a decade and are proud to say that we currently have two factories that have made our testing samples and will be producing the NYA-EVO FJORD 36. This will greatly will reduce delivery issues.

CNY
Chinese New Year is early February 2018, which means that the months leading up to then are the busiest of the year for manufacturers. It is generally a month-long holiday which can cause delays in production.

COLORS
We have made laboratory color fabric samples of the Powder, Pine, and Midnight and have represented the colors as realistically as possible, but as always there may be slight color differences due to your monitor display or after the production run.

SHIPPING
We plan to ship our goods from Hong Kong by courier directly to you. Doing this will ensure that the products get to you the fastest possible way. In the event that we have an extremely large order volume we will ship the goods by sea where they will be distributed from USA or Europe (orders in Asia will be only shipped from Hong Kong).
