Single bottom construction and cotton web backstraps work to keep weight and price to a minimum. The Utility Packs aren’t as “overbuilt” as many of the heavier canoe packs. Streamlined to the basics …if you will only be using your canoe pack for a week or two a year, you may want to check out the Utility packs. They’re tough, trustworthy, reliable and we stand by ‘em.
