Borrowing on the Load Carriage logic of the Guide Light Frame, the new POP-UP FRAME packs are a scaled-down design for day hunters who anticipate serious meat hauling. Super heavy-duty 7075 Aluminum pole stays collapse into the packs’ back-panel and compress out of the way when not in use. When it’s time for the pack-out, the frame pops into place (much like tent poles) to support the heavy hauling. The new POP-UP 18 pack features this innovative, transforming frame that allows day hunters to haul out meat via the MYSTERY RANCH OVERLOAD feature. This 18 Liter pack facilitates the minimalist hunting kit. It features top lid access to the main compartment, along with zippered accessory compartments on the lid and the front. The side water bottle pockets and compression securely fit tripods and trekking poles. It sits lower on your back giving you full range of motion in the shoulders for archery hunting and nimble stalks.
The external Pop-Up Frame, made with heavy-duty 7075 aluminum pole stays, pops up into place (much like tent poles) to support heavy hauling and collapses into the packs' back panel when not in use. The waist belt system with belt wings allows you to cinch the frame/load onto the hips and distributes the weight evenly.
OVERLOAD feature provides functional expandability via a load sling between the pack and the frame, allowing you to put the bulk of the weight closest to your back for optimal comfort.
The patented Futura Yoke easily macro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
