The front loader is equipped with a circumferential zipper so that the entire front can be folded down quickly and the loading is much more comfortable. Besides, the Centurio 30 is fitted with additional molle stripes on the sides and a net at the front. The high-quality backpack is made of reinforced Ardura 1000D nylon and therefore perfectly prepared for harsh circumstances. Even harsh weather conditions cannot harm the Berghaus Centurio 30 backpack. To further optimize the wearing comfort, the backpack is equipped with a stabilizing inner-frame. In addition to a particular Molle system, the front of the Centurio 30 also has two clips that can be operated with a quick-release fastener, for example, to quickly and safely attach ice axes or hiking poles. Thanks to its innovative, modular concept, the Berghaus Centurio 30 can be adapted in a particularly flexible way and can be easily and quickly expanded with the MMPS side pockets, for example with side straps to attach sleeping pads or other accessories. The hydration box with practical hose lead-through allows the safe storage of hydration packs. The lid of the backpack is equipped with a zippered pocket and other Molle loops.

Available variants of the Centurio 30
The multi-functional backpack of the Berghaus MMPS series has front-access in the FA-version (front access) and shares the same modules as the other MMPS models. The Centurio 30 offers the same level of flexibility, and the front-access allows quick removal of equipment from the bottom of the backpack without the need to move other pieces of stuff up.
Our tip: When purchasing pay more attention to the designation Front-Access -FA-, otherwise maybe only the "normal" version will be delivered!
It is possible to extend the volume of 1000 oz (30 liters) utilizing the two side pockets of the large Crusader to a total of 1700 oz (50 liters) volume. At first glance, the Centurio 30 resembles the Berghaus Munro, but thanks to its front-side Molle system offers a specific function more.
The Centurio 30 trekking backpack has a hip belt, a lid pocket, a waterproof inner compartment for hydration, and the main compartment with a volume of 1000 oz (30 liters). The front and the lid are provided with Molle-stripes. The lateral zipper serves to accommodate the crusader side pockets.

The abbreviation MMPS stands for the "Multi-Mission Pack System." This particular system was developed to use the outdoor backpack for a variety of purposes. The modular, flexible packing system also serves to combine the Centurio 30 with the Crusader model and thus expand it.

Why do you need a front-access? In a regular backpack, which is filled from the bottom to the top, you should already think about which equipment must be at your fingertips, and this is then stowed quite high up in the backpack.
At the same time, heavy objects should be worn as far down as possible and close to the back. This challenge can be met with a front opening as all the depths of the backpack are equally accessible.
