Sometimes even bigger trips are all about the simplicity. The Core 28L | 1700 CI Pack was designed for those trips! The Core 28L | 1700 CI is perfect for overnights, SUL weekends, climbing, running, skiing, hiking, or cycling, summits, alpine attacks, or as a travel carry-on pack. Whether you’re trimming your pack weight, or cutting the total number of items carried to a minimum this pack will increase your SUL Experience.
At first glance, it looks like any other small, streamlined pack but look closer and the many details emerge. The curved ergonomic shaped shoulder straps set into the pack at a proper shoulder cant angles. High-quality, strong, lightweight hardware. A unique, daisy chain splay angle that also serves as the roll top strap buckle. No straps on the sides to catch bushwhacking or interfere with running or skiing arm swings. The sides and back panels are curved to shape the pack to natural back body curves for overall comfort. Over-sized lower shoulder strap anchor triangles that spread the force and help stabilize the load lower on the back.
Medium and Large sizes. Available in Wasabi Green Dyneema X, Stealth Grey Dyneema X, or as a Dyneema X and White .75 DCF (Dyneema® Composite Fabric A.K.A. Cuben Fiber) hybrid. NOTE: Shoulder strap pockets, and hip belt pockets are available in Stealth Grey ONLY – regardless of pack color.
