The XP Metal Detector Backpack 280 is ideal for safely storing and transporting metal detectors and detecting accessories. It combines comfort and functionality.


Composed of ultra-resistant materials (polyester 600D and 1000D), commonly found in high-end trekking backpacks, the XP Backpack 280 is robust and suitable for outdoor use whatever the weather conditions, thanks to its rain cover.

XP head designers wanted to go a little further and combine sturdiness with comfort. In addition to its back padding and large padded shoulder straps, it also has 9 adjustment straps distributed over 5 different zones, allowing a straightforward and personalised adjustment. The quilted belt ensures stabilisation and even load transfer across the hips. All this, combined with the breathable back ventilation system, maximises mobility and reduces fatigue during long detecting sessions.


By designing this product, XP Metal Detectors wanted to allow the detecting community to be able to transport all their necessary equipment in only one backpack safely. Its multiple dedicated pockets and compartments allow the optimal organisation of gear. Two large compartments accommodate the main elements of the detector, such as coils and lower stems, the other compartment for stems and digging tools.

There are no less than 10 pockets added to these compartments to provide space for specific items. There are pockets for pinpointer storage, accessories, headphones, personal belongings, plus many others. One thing is for sure; there is no shortage of space using the XP Metal Detector Backpack 280.

Doubts about where to store your equipment? Do not worry, XP have found the solution! Location icons indicate the various storage compartments and their intended use. They are visible on the pocket opening strips and inside the main compartments. But there’s even more! You can further customise your backpack by adding a wide range of XP or aftermarket accessories thanks to the MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) attachment systems. This universal system, widely used by the military, allows the attachment of various accessories via horizontal bands sewn into flat loops. Finds pouch, remote control cover, pinpointer holster and BIG John Hand Digger Holster, are just a few suggestions. There are so many objects that you can fasten to your backpack and keep them within easy to reach while out detecting.

The XP Metal Detector Backpack 280 is as user-friendly as it can be. Once equipped and properly adjusted, you will find it indispensable.
