Multi Sport Adventures
Named after our hometown stomping grounds which is often referred to as Michigan’s Big Wild. This load hauling pack is perfectly at home in any of the big wilds you may find yourself in. Whether floating the south fork of the Flathead, or on an extended trip in the Brooks Range, this pack is ready for any of your adventures.
The combination of the frame, suspension and contoured body shape of this pack make it a very capable UL load hauler. The twin stays are made of 7075 aircraft grade aluminum which will not deform under heavy loads. The stays are directly connected to the load lifters up top, and the belt down below making for great load transfer to the hips. The full wrap hip belt on this pack is incredibly supportive and does a great job of transferring as much weight as you would like to your hips. The suspension is overall very light, effective and simple.
Endless attachment points make it easy to customize the pack to your own needs even from trip to trip. Modular compression, bottom straps and various top strap styles make it easy to add extrenal gear storage if you find yourself needing extra storage space on any given trip. When the compression straps are removed there is no hardware leftover which makes for a very clean aesthetic and minimal weight.
The pack comes stock with a lycra pad sleeve on the back panel and a foam sit pad which can be used as a seat while taking breaks. Optionally you can also use a folded 1/8" foam sleepeing pad in the back panel to replace the sit pad. The lycra mesh used for the back panel is an antimicrobial mesh which is anti-odor and also wicks sweat away from your back.
