The Outfitter Explorer canoe pack is a perfect mid-sized pack for a small group or as a large personal pack. The Outfitter Special is equiped standard with a padded back, waist belt, and contoured padded back straps for added comfort on long portages. The adjustable sternum and cinch straps assist in keeping the pack tight, and close to the body, while the four side compression straps assist in load control. As with all packs in the Outfitter Series, the top is fitted with an extendable gusset adding another 9.5 inches for added room. Hand made in Ely, MN with 1000 denier Cordura, our packs are made to last.
