More than 50 years of experience ensures quality and reliability in the case of ESSL products. The company - named after its founder Georg Essl - designed and produces military, hiking, and mountaineering backpacks for decades, while their products became popular amongst military and law enforcement personnel, hikers, and climbers. ESSL is a supplier of the Bundesheer (the Austrian Armed Forces), designed and manufactured products for companies like Glock. As it can be seen, backpacks made by this Austrian company are not only available for reasonable prices, they also offer quality and durability.
Most of the rucksacks are made of rip-stop nylon - a woven material that contains reinforcing yarns. If the bag suffers any kind of damage, these yarns provide the needed extra strength to prevent further tearing of the fabric. Most packs also have an impregnated inner layer to make sure your backpack can withstand the changes in the weather. Rip-stop nylon is not only durable but also very lightweight which makes it perfect for minimalist hikers, military, and law enforcement workers who need or want to keep the weight of their equipment at a minimum.
Every product of the company is created with careful design work, based on multiple decades of experience in making backpacks and rucksacks always keeping the product practical with high quality and great reliability. In their product range, we can still find the old school linen backpacks of our grandparents, but their true potential is shown in their more modern hiking and duty products.
Quality standards are easy to recognize: ESSL gives a two-year warranty for each of its products!
Co-workers of Dark Tactical put ESSL backpacks through extensive testing in field-work: our most used sample was with us on almost 1000km on foot, helped us by moving, carrying goods, came with us on holidays. After this, we can say from experience: you will love your ESSL backpack as a reliable partner in almost any situation!
