• NEW FOR 2017: Curved Side Panels: A slight curve from the waist to the shoulders moves the load closer to the upper back for more comfort. This also creates a slightly larger main compartment higher in the pack that helps load control by moving the heavier and higher packed gear higher to reduces shoulder stress.
• S-shaped unisex, ergonomically designed comfort shoulder straps are 3″ wide and SuperWick mesh lined with full-length foam padding. These are the comfiest straps on any 14 oz pack! These very comfortable shoulder straps and are super tough. Size Small and XS are 2.5″ wide.

•Volume reduction bottom system: Two clips and spectra loops connect to reduce volume 30% for day pack use and small loads.
• Hybrid Mesh/Dyneema X Side and Rear Pockets. The leading edge of the side pockets are Dyneema X to prevent snagging when moving through the bush. The lower 5″ of the rear pocket is Dyneema X to prevent abrasion from sharp contents or butt sliding accidents. The 4 oz sq/yd open hole non-stretch drains fast to allow contents to dry faster than a tight stretch mesh or solid fabric. Dyneema X elastic top sleeves for long term Durability and elastic replacement.
• Slanted side mesh pockets are deep enough for a 2 L Platy. Pocket top bungee sleeves of Dyneema X for long term durability. Pocket adjusts by pulling the bungee closed through the cord lock. Many lower priced packs simply bind over the top of the raw mesh with regular garment type elastic that loses it’s stretch in a few years and does stretch in deep cold weather.

• Torso lengths on MLD packs are measured from the bottom of the pack below the waist belt wings to the point where the shoulder straps attach to the pack.
• 95% of MLD packs users do best to go by our height guidelines
• Different pack makers and outdoor stores measure for torso length differently AND frameless pack are measured and fit differently than fully framed packs with large hip belts. DO NOT go to your local outdoor store (REI etc…) and “get pack fitted” and then select a size/length based on that measurement; it will be wrong!
• Use our height guide! If you need help deciding the right size – Please feel free to give us a call. (Please don’t order multiple sizes as a guess!)
• Test Fit You Pack Indoors after Receiving it – We are happy to exchange for different size or refund new/unused packs.
• If In Doubt – SIZE UP!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    After staring at my new prophet for a few months I finally got a few days on trail with it….I’m amazed how comfortable this pack is! I’m around 10lb base wt with my pups winter gear. We just did the 55 mile section from Rockfish gap to US60 in just over two days. My lg xtherm makes a great frame and rides like a pillow against my back. I’d say with food and 1.5l of water I was around 20lbs……amazing pack!

    I cannot fault this pack. I wanted to move to a frameless pack for a while and finally ordered mine last year, delivery was spot on the lead time advised on the website.

    Comfort wise, its is incredible. I have used with a section of pad in the back and without. To be honest, it sits on my back so well I hardly notice it’s there. I’ve averaged around the 16lb for my winter walks/camps. The hipbelt transfers weight very well and the padding on the belt and shoulders is brilliant.

    I went with the Wasabi Green and am glad I did. The material sheds rain well and seems to be very abrasion resistant.

    The external pockets are superb, I am able to fit everything I need during the day in them meaning I dont have to open the main pack until camp. The shock cord on the side pockets is a really good idea and secures them very well.
