Combining the biomechanics of comfort, balance & agility into lightweight simplicity, the Marathon Magic range are more oftenly chosen for extreme marathon events. Masters of body movement, pack stability & easy gear access, they are amazing for adventure-racers, skiers, cyclists, ultra runners and fast-packing walkers.



Tighten the hipbelt and the pack will mould to your body like a limpet while the Omni and U Flow systems will allow extreme movement. For cycling the flexible frame will bend as your back curves to reach the handlebars but will prevent "round out" when you stuff the pack full. Adjust the backlength on the go for a customized fit. Keep cooler under maximum exertion with the Matrix Mesh harness and backpanel. Marathon Balance Pockets give balance and gear access on the go. Water is best carried in bottles in the Balance Pockets. You can access the pockets with one hand when cycling. The Balance Pockets on the Marathon Magic 22/ 33 and Mountain Magic are interchangeable. You can even remove the shoulder straps and use the Balance Pockets to create a Torso-pack so all load is only the hips. (MM 22, 33 V.4)

Aarn Bodypacks - WHICH MODEL & SIZE?

The first question to consider is the longest trip you will do with the pack and the gear required. This will determine the capacity of pack needed. Now think about the predominant use. Aarn packs are divided into 4 ranges:
