DCF Long Haul 35 - Full Suspension
Weight - 21.5oz
Capacity - 45L total (35L internal/10L external)
Carrying capacity 35lbs or less
The DCF version of our Long Haul 35 liter pack! This pack comes with all of the same features and specs as the original, but comes in a few ounces lighter due to the use of 50D 2.9oz DCF (formerly referred to as hybrid cuben). This fabric is the lightest fabric that we offer, and it is great for anyone looking to get their pack weight reduced as much as possible. All of our DCF packs come fully seam taped for maximum water resistance, and seam strength.
The main body of the pack is made out of 50D 2.9oz DCF, while the bottom is made out of 150D 5oz DCF for added abrasion resistance. For the side pockets we have a few different options. Doing the side pockets out of VX21 will add some extra abrasion resistance over the 50D DCF, but they will add .7oz to the overall pack weight. The green X42 side pockets will add 1oz, but will be very durable.
This pack was designed with the thru-hiker in mind. It is an ultralight workhorse capable of carrying loads of up to 30-35lbs comfortably. This pack comes stock with everything you will need out of a pack while on a long distance hike.
The internal suspension system of this pack features two contoured aluminum stays which are removable and a 1/4" foam back pad which is not removable. It also has a fully padded hip belt and lumbar area. The aluminum stays extend down into the lumbar area of the hip belt right behind where the hip belt wings attach to the pack making for the most comfortable carry and the best possible weight transfer to your hips.
All of our packs have the same S-shaped shoulder straps which work great for both men and women. Our shoulder straps are about 2.75" wide and are made using high quality 3/8" foam, 1/8'' spacer mesh, and a 400D diamond grid ripstop Nylon material. This makes for a very comfortable 1/2" thick shoulder strap. Our shoulder straps and hip belt wings are both reinforced for extended life.
Our packs are hand-made by us right here in Michigan and are constructed using the finest materials and the best construction methods. All seams are flat felled and double stiched, with select seams being triple stitched. These packs are ready to handle anything you can throw at them, and will give you thousands of miles of use.
