Compression is the key to the Boulder Jct Pack. D-rings and paracord lacing run the full length on each side. Valuable input from the adventurers at Camp Manito-Wish in Boulder Junction Wisconsin helped transform our versatile Summit Pack into an adaptable travel companion. Tall, functional, and built to last, it is suited for excursions in the woods or on the water. A sleeve at the back provides options; a zippered compartment at the bottom and a buckled pocket on the front offer easy access. Made at Frost River. Thanks Walter!!!
