A completely new concept in backpack design. This pack started out with the quest to develop a pack that would carry a bear canister securely. It does a nice job of this but in testing this piece, it's been a sweet and versatile system for lots of different loads. There are two full length lateral pockets that cinch around whatever you place in the CORE or center section of the pack, then a compression flap can be cinched down tight holding everything securely in place. This center CORE section also works great for many other items that are hard to fit inside a conventional pack, such as tripods, fly rods, wet tents, as well as compressed items like sleeping bags.
When it comes to load transfer, ergonomics and airflow not all suspension systems are created equal! Most of the competition still use low cost HDPE plastic and an aluminum stay or two. The reengineered 3D TopoFlex frame is engineered to fit the topography of your back and mimic the way a back naturally flexes. The single "pivot point" attachment system on our shoulder strap and belt allow for a more precise fit and better freedom of movement while continuously supporting the load and directing it to your hips or shoulders and allowing some of the load to be carried throughout the back. Because of this system the load can be shifted to be carried by different muscle and skeletal groups. The new Advection back panel allows for the air to flow over the back moving heat out while still maintaining significant contact and following the natural topography of the human back thus complimenting the ergonomic load carriage benefits of the TopoFlex frame and harness system.
