$189.00

Black
Grey
Coyote
Recently Added two Multicam Variants.

 3.25 pound | 1474 gram

While not a unique design, this is a fresh take on it.  Arc’teryx has the Khard, Red Rock has their own version and now Vanquish has theirs.

Measured at 13” top / 12” bottom (L) x 22” (H) x 8” top / 10” bottom (W),

A continuous YKK #10 zipper opening gives you 270-degree top-to-bottom & front-to-back access to the foam-padded main compartment.

  1. With the design of this pack, it lends itself to be attached to a tree at the camp site. The long straps could be used to wrap around a tree and clasp on the side of the tree away from the main pack body. The complete back portion of the back can be opened and draped down toward the ground. With the attachment points inside the pack, it looks like items used at the site could be secured there for easy access. The design of this pack affords easy access to the side compartments as well when attached to a tree. This is just a guess but it looks like that's how it's designed to me. It's an interesting design that could fine it's place in a backpacker's arsenal of equipment.

  2. Great review!

    I think your spellcheck was at work - In your description it reads:

    Vanquish?????? Should read Vanquest, a great company bringing us Tough Built Gear!
