Superior Wilderness Ultra-Lite 50L Long Haul Backpack 2019 Model

$250.00 $280.00

This pack was designed with the thru-hiker in mind. It is an ultralight workhorse capable of carrying loads of up to 30lbs comfortably, yet it only weighs in at 28oz. This pack comes stock with everything you will need out of a pack while on a long distance hike. Everything on this pack was fine tuned during our time on the PCT in 2016.

It is constructed out of tough 5oz VX07 X-Pac material for the main pack body, and uses 6oz VX21 for high-wear areas. X-Pac material is fully waterproof, very durable, and yet still ultralight making it a great all around backpack fabric. We can also make any of our packs out of lighter 4.2oz VX03 X-pac, or tougher 6oz VX21. We also have in stock VX42 Rugged X-pac, which is great for the high-wear areas on packs and is a great option if you are a bit harder on your gear.

The internal suspension system of this pack features two contoured aluminum stays which are removable and a 1/4" foam back pad which is not removable. These packs can comfortably carry about 30-35lbs in them, but can handle much more if necessary.

This pack is big enough to easily fit a large bear canister inside vertically, while still having plenty of room to store the rest of your gear. It has 50 liters of internal capacity, and 12 liters of external capacity, bringing the total to 62 liters. It also come with a V-style top strap which makes it possible to carry a bear canister outside of the pack.

This pack is also very modular, and most of the features are removable. When all of the optional items are removed from the pack, it turns into a 18oz frameless pack making it perfect for shorter trips where its increased carrying capabilities are unnecessary.

Our packs are hand-made by us right here in Michigan and are constructed using the finest materials and the best construction methods.

This pack comes fully loaded with: 
-Large front mesh pocket, made from strong 100D pocket mesh. 
-Two Side water bottle pockets big enough for two 1L water bottles each made out of VX21 or Dyneema X. 
-Sewn in hipbelt for most effective load transfer to the hips. Stock size is 28" and adjusts up to 48".
