This pocket attaches to our Big Wild backpack to add additional storage space to the pack and can be seamlessly transferred over to a packraft to use as a bow bag while on the water.
While attached to the pack the space behind the pocket can be used to stash items such as a PFD or paddle blades.
The pocket itself is pretty water resistant when seam taped, however it is not submergeable. There is a flap over the zipper to reduce the amount of water that can enter the zipper seams due to splashing or rain. The flap can be flipped backwards for easier access to the pocket or flipped forward for more water resistance.
This pocket is made to use with the Big Wild Pack, but will fit on any of our backpacks to add additional storage space.
The pocket attaches using gated G hooks. While attached to the backpack, you can attach two more sets of compression straps and attach the pocket to the top strap of the pack to add additional security to items stowed behind the pocket. Tightening down the compression straps attached to the pocket will also simultaneously compress the pack body or you can attach the straps directly to the attachment points on the front of the pack to create more room behind the bow bag for storing larger items.
Attachment to the packraft using our standard gated compression straps is recommended only for flat water where there is no risk of capsizing. For whitewater we reccommend attaching to your boat using lash straps or a piece of cord to reduce the risk of entanglement. On a size small classic boat you can use two 48" lash straps to attach the bow bag to the boat.
Improper use of this item could lead to entanglement and death. Superior Wilderness Designs LLC takes no responsibility for improper use of this item.
