New! Adjustable torso sizing! The full wrap hip belt allows the torso size to be adjusted by up to 3".
This is the same as our classic Long Haul 40 pack, but it is now available in Ultragrid 200 fabric!
The Long Haul is a medium to large capacity ultralight internal frame backpack that is a great do-all pack. If you have to pick one backpack to handle all of your backpacking needs, this pack will get the job done no matter what the adventure calls for. It is a great choice for any thru-hike!
This pack is very intuitive and easy to use. We've left off any unnecessary features so that you can spend less time fussing with your pack and more time on the trail. It can be run with as little as two buckles, one on the roll-top and one on the hip belt, which means there is little hardware to break. Or you can load it up with compression straps and external strapping if you need extra storage space.
The 40L pack has a max capacity of 40L of internal storage but compresses down to a very comfortable 25L when the roll top is rolled down to the load lifters. The outer pockets are considered extra capacity and add approximately 10-12L.
The Long Haul is a very comfortable and easy-to-use pack with a very capable frame and suspension system that can handle up to 40lbs if you need it to. Loads of 30lbs or less are optimal and will feel like you are floating down the trail.
Endless attachment points make it easy to customize the pack to your own needs, even from a trip to trip. Modular compression, bottom straps, and various top strap styles make it easy to add external 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, making for a very clean aesthetic and minimal weight.
The pack comes stock with a lycra pad sleeve on the back panel and a foam seat pad which can be used as a seat while taking breaks.
This pack is made of tough Utragrid 200 fabric by Challenge Sailcloth. This fabric has a double ripstop grid made of UHMWPE which makes it super strong. It is made using 100% recycled 210 nylon and the face is treated with a non-toxic CO DWR which is environmentally friendly.
