Lightweight Backpacks / Integrated Platform / Divide
Designed for the ultralight backpacker and backcountry adventurer who needs both light weight and comfort under serious loads, the Divide bridges the gap between traditional ultralight backpacking and load hauling external frames.
Other 2.5 pound packs do well with 20 - 25 pounds, and struggle above. The Divide thrives with 30-50 pound loads and is capable over 100 pounds.
With a proven feature set tailored for lightweight backpackers, pack rafters, and backcountry skiers, the Divide also delivers on ultralight backpack hunting trips where weight is of utmost importance.
Handmade in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.

Seek Outside Backpacks all feature:
- Seek Outside Suspension - all our backpacks use the same frame, hipbelt, & shoulder harness (save money by adding packbags down the road instead of buying a whole backpack).
- Patent Pending Articulating Frame. Our suspension will comfortably carry anything you can.
- X-Pac™ Backpack Fabric - forever waterproof & durable. No more raincovers!
- Adjustable Frame Height - 24" -26" - 28" - Frame Extensions allow you to dial your pack height to your torso length or expected load weight.
- Tapered main bag adapts to large loads, and rolls down to hug smaller loads. When rolled down to the top of the frame the Divide is little more than 3000 cubic inches, but at full capacity balloons to 4500.
- Dimensional side pockets with shock cord closure. Uncinch, access a bottle or snacks, and recinch with one hand on the fly. Shock cord is user replaceable for long service life.
- Rear mesh pocket for storage of wet or quick access items.
- Movable / Removable compression straps. The Divide ships with an over the top strap, three side compression straps on each side, and two bottom compression straps.
