    The Merlin functions as a Talon compression panel on our Revolution frame backpacks, but also has it's own shoulder harness and can be worn as a small frameless daypack.  Main functions are daypack, load hauling compression panel, or volume & organization extender (can get extra nights out of a smaller main packbag).

    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.
