Description

The pack carries superbly. Load transfer from shoulders to hips is eased by the combination of an H-shaped triple-stay internal frame and a stiff polyethylene framesheet. The thermo-moulded backpad doesn’t absorb perspiration. The stamped, thermo-moulded hipbelt is trimmed with edge binding for a clean look, and its stabilizer straps pull the pack load close to your body. The comfortable, sewn-in, triple-density padded shoulder straps save weight, and have an adjustable sternum strap to further stabilize your pack load.

Pack body is made of 420-denier Skid® ripstop nylon with a 210-denier and 1000-denier Cordura™ bottom. Full-length Uretek® zipper gives easy access to pack contents. Floating top lid can be tightened down on either side to keep out the elements. Dual spindrift collar opens and closes with an oversized pullcord. Uretek-zippered exterior lid pocket. Internal map pocket under the lid with hidden key clip. Webbing strap atop packbag secures a rope or extra gear. Mesh pockets on both sides snug up with a one-handed pull cordlock system. Quick-release Rock Lockster® buckles snap positively into place. Uretek daisy-chain and heavy-duty crampon patch feature Imbedded Thread Technology™ to protect stitching against tearing or fraying. Removable shockcord system on the outside of the packbag allows for lashing on of extra gear. Four canted compression straps on each side for snugging up undersized loads. Uretek ski holders and dual ice-axe loops/holders.

    I've used nemerous packs in the past, including ArcTeryx Bora 60lt and Kashmin 52, I must confess, the Serratus is the best I've used to date, at about 30% less then other packs. It has every little detail one would want in a pack. It's confertable and rugged. It will perform as well or better then any other "renown" packs out there. I strongly recommend this pack.
