This is the same as the SWD standard Long Haul 50, but the main body is made out of either VX21 or X42 fabric, which makes the pack much more durable.

This pack was designed with the thru-hiker in mind. It is an ultralight workhorse capable of carrying loads of up to 40lbs comfortably. This pack comes stock with everything you will need out of a pack while on a long distance hike. 

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. It also has a fully padded hip belt and lumbar area. The aluminum stays extend down into the lumbar area of the hip belt right behind where the hip belt wings attach to the pack making for the most comfortable carry and the best possible weight transfer to your hips. 

All SWD packs have the same S-shaped shoulder straps which work great for both men and women. Our shoulder straps are about 2.75" wide and are made using high quality 3/8" foam, 1/8'' spacer mesh, and a 400D diamond grid ripstop Nylon material. This makes for a very comfortable 1/2" thick shoulder strap. Our shoulder straps and hip belt wings are both reinforced for extended life.

This pack is constructed out of very durable materials. You can pick from either VX21, or X42. The VX21 is a great option for thru-hiking, or if you just want your pack to last a bit longer and aren't worried about a few extra oz.

The X42 has a rugged 420 denier face fabric, which makes the fabric very durable. This would be a good option for regular bush wacking or any other application where your pack will take a lot of abuse. The X42 fabric is a bit different than the other x-pac fabrics that we use in that it does not have an inner scrim fabric. It will be green on the inside of the pack. The X42 fabric will add about 3oz to the estimated weight of this pack. 

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 10 liters of external capacity, bringing the total to 60 liters. It also comes with a V-style top strap which makes it possible to carry a bear canister on top 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 20oz frameless pack making it perfect for shorter trips where its increased carrying capabilities are unnecessary.

SWD packs are hand-made in Michigan and are constructed using the finest materials and the best construction methods. All seams are flat felled and double stiched, with select seams being triple stitched. These packs are ready to handle anything you can throw at them, and will give you thousands of miles of use.

Sizing Information :

While the SWD backpacks are highly waterproof, they are not seam sealed, so the use of a pack line/water proof stuff sacks is recommended. We recommend using a trash compactor bag, as they are cheap and very durable.
