This is the same as our standard Long Haul 35, but the main body is made out of either VX21 or X42 fabric, which makes the pack much more durable.
This is the same basic design as our standard 35L pack, but with full suspension. That means that this pack comes with a suspension system consisting of a foam back pad, two removable aluminum stays, and a fully padded hip belt with two hip belt pockets. The addition of the full suspension system ups the comfortable carrying capacity of this pack to about 40lbs.
This medium capacity pack was made to be simple and foolproof. It has 35L of internal capacity, and 10L of external capacity making for a total of 45L. It is sure to be your go-to pack for anything from day hikes to multi day backcountry adventures. As far as we're concerned, this is the perfect pack size for any UL backpacking trip.
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.
This pack is constructed out of very durable materials. You can pick from either VX21, or X42. The VX21 is a great option for thru-hiking, or if you just want your pack to last a bit longer and aren't worried about a few extra oz.
The X42 has a rugged 420 denier face fabric, which makes the fabric very durable. This would be a good option for regular bush wacking or any other application where your pack will take a lot of abuse. The X42 fabric is a bit different than the other x-pac fabrics that we use in that it does not have an inner scrim fabric. It will be green on the inside of the pack. The X42 fabric will add about 3oz to the estimated weight of this pack.
This pack is big enough to fit a large bear canister inside vertically.
Our packs are hand-made by us right here in Michigan and are constructed using the finest materials and the best construction methods.

While our packs are highly waterproof, they are not seam sealed, so the use of a pack line/waterproof stuff sacks is recommended. We recommend using a trash compactor bag, as they are cheap and very durable.
All of our packs are made to order, see our home page for current lead times.
