Configurable Options

  • Breakaway Platform or Integrated Platform - Integrated is lighter and more direct.  Breakaway is more versatile in carrying large, heavy, or bulky loads due to Breakaway Carry.
  • Fabrics - X21 has a 210D face fabric and is a great all around lightweight backpacking fabric. X33 Multicam has a 330D face fabric and is a great lightweight hunting or bushwhacking fabric.  X42 Olive has a 420D face and is a good all round fabric, and the choice for rock abrasion.
  • Accent Fabrics - the difference here is cosmetic only, as the fabrics are the same.
  • Face Pocketing - choose between a simple mesh stuff pocket, a Peregrine style mesh pocket with two zippered security pockets, or no pocket.  You can add a Talon to your order if you wish by clicking the link - Talons, Top Lids, & Pockets
  • Side Pockets - Choose between our most popular styles - Water Bottle, Tall Side Pockets, and Zippered Wing Pockets.  Independent left and right options let you mix and match pockets to your needs.
  • Side Zipper - Fully separating, with pulls on top and bottom.  This allows you to open the packbag fully for access, or to open from bottom up if the rolltop is closed, making access easier on the fly.
  • Hydro Port - select if you're a bladder user, opt out for more waterproofness of the packbag, or for bottle users.
