For adventures from day hikes to extended expeditions, the Merlin is a hunting day pack, compression panel, and volume extender.


  • Zippered main compartment - fits a standard laptop
  • Large zippered side pocket - fits a 65mm spotting scope
  • Top Security pocket - sized for headlamp, keys, or wallet
  • Hydration pocket
  • Integrated harness for daypack use
  • Talon compatible
  • Stuffs into its' own pocket, either top or side


Named for the small, fast, and nimble falcon, the Merlin is sleek, lightweight, and highly functional.  The Merlin is a daypack large enough for late season use that integrates with our Talon compression system to double as a volume extender for long trips or a compression panel for heavy hauling with a Revolution Suspension.

Note: The Merlin does not have buckles built in like our previous Talons . In order to use the Merlin with an older Seek Outside backpack that uses side release buckles, you will need to cut off the side release buckles and replace them with a Gatekeeper Retrofit Kit.
