Nothing makes you feel more one with the woods than trekking effortlessly and silently. The SCAPEGOAT 25 is designed for this purpose. With a minimalistic, highly compressible bag, the narrow body-panel framing allows for movement and flexibility. A full, "U" shaped zippered main compartment provides "fillet" style access to your gear. With generous stretch woven pocketing on the front and sides, you have ample storage and quick access to necessities. Designed on a burly yet lightweight frame to carry heavier loads.
This Internal Frame is an HDPE (high-density polyethylene) sheet that provides rigidity and yet is flexible. The waist belt system with belt wings allows you to cinch the frame/load onto the hips and distributes the weight evenly.
The patented Futura Yoke easily macro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
Horseshoe zipper for main compartment access
Two detail pockets on lid for small items

Two stretch-woven side bottle pockets
Zippered waist belt pockets for small item access on the move
This pack can carry 40 pounds comfortable and is bigger than it looks I can fit all my overnight gear in it and then put six smart water bottles in the outside elastic pockets and have three or four days of food if strap my jacket to the outside of the pack I could fit more. The compression straps on the outside of the pack could easily hold a fishing pole or rifle. I could fit my sleeping bag in the bottom of this still have enough room for my gear most of the time I use it as a Daypack. Zippers solid, double layer cordera on the bottom heavy duty hip belt the overall The Pact could be made lighter I feel like it can hold 50 lb the way it's built maybe even 60 which could easily happen if you threw a a few boxes of ammo on top of everything else
I purchased this pack for day trips in the backcountry in order to hold a hydration system, optics, and DSLR camera gear. Although it is advertised as a 25 liter pack, it holds far more than I expected and seems to be closer to a 35 liter. I can fit all of the gear listed above including rain gear and food without overloading. It has a strong frame and a rigid hip belt. The hip belt is very comfortable when supporting a larger load, but a bit combersome when carrying lighter loads that don't require the belt. The pack is extremely durable without being overly heavy. The weatherproof zippers are incredibly smooth and strong, unlike most from other companies. I would certainly purchase this pack again.
