Show Description

For building and maintaining mountain bike trails, the design was conceived with input and feedback from trail builders on Vancouver's North Shore. The pack has a suspension system borrowed from MEC climbing packs that can handle the weight of tools and a saw. Its builder-specific features include dedicated chainsaw carry straps, loops and straps for long-handled tools and loppers, a first aid kit compartment, an accessory roll for smaller tools, plus a hydration sleeve, a rain cover and plenty of space for the day's gear and supplies.

  • Made of super-durable 630-denier nylon with a water-resistant PU coating and a DWR finish.
  • Burly suspension includes 2 aluminum stays, a perimeter hoop frame and a plastic frame sheet to support heavy loads.
  • EVA foam padded hipbelt, shoulder straps and backpanel.
  • Zippered top opening to a cavernous main compartment.
  • External top pocket and hipbelt pockets hold small essentials.
  • Dedicated first aid kit pocket also has an internal zippered security pocket with a key clip.
  • Front pouch with abrasion-resistant TPU lining and camming compression straps holds a compact chainsaw.
