The name says it all, stand up and give a Mile High Salute to our award winning Snake-Loader™ pack.
Named by National Geographic as "Gear of the Year" and Men’s Health Magazine as one of the “top 5 products available”,the Salute has some serious fans and is the flagship for a new style and genre of packs. The Salute is an "every-panel loader" equipped with a heavy-duty #10 zipper that “snakes” around the entire pack in the shape of an "S". This gives you the versatility and access in a pack that you’ve only dreamed of. You can literally access your gear any which way you please and at any location in the pack. The Salute can also zip entirely open into a ground mat to keep ropes and any other important gear off the ground and away from rocks. Heck you could even use it as a placemat for a backcountry picnic! This pack sports our M-Flex™ frame system and acclaimed VariCant™ dual-pivoting hipbelt for amazing comfort that pivots and flexes with your body's motions while offering phenomenal load support. Combine this new pack design with durable Cordura® Fabrics, pockets galore, an included deployable Packslicker™ rainfly and it's ready to salute you on any adventure.
