Compression is the key to the Boulder Junction Pack. It’s a fairly tall pack that holds a lot and really benefits from the cinched sides that the brass rings and laced cord provide.

Description

We got valuable input from the adventurers at Camp Manito-wish in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin that helped transform our versatile Summit Pack into a capable and adaptable back pack that will work equally well with small, light loads, and big, heavy, high volume, loads. The zippered compartment at the bottom adds capacity and allows wet or dirty gear its own space. Twin zipper slides keep contents, like a rain jacket, ready at a moment’s notice. There’s a sleeve inside, at the back of the pack, able to handle a laptop, a water bladder, or whatever other flat stuff you want to put back there. The buckled pocket on the front aids organization and provides another spot to stash necessities. Waxed canvas keeps the weather out and will last for years. The padded backstraps provide comfort, and the brass ring attachment system supports the pack and provides independent movement between back and pack.

    Raw Reliability

The Summit Boulder Jct. is made of waxed canvas with solid brass hardware, and great leather in Duluth, Minnesota, at Frost River. It’s built to last and aimed to please. Thanks to Walter and the great staff and campers of Camp Manito-wish!!! Upgrade your straps! Enhance your pack with our premium buckskin padded shoulder straps. Cut from the same burly bridle leather and built with the same care, attention to detail and cushy closed-cell foam as in our canoe and bushcraft packs, this is an upgrade in both style and function. Please note that upgrading to the buckskin straps may require us to spend extra time building your pack. All of our buckskin comes from real, wild deer hides, so each one is a little different and may show scars & evidence of life lived in the wilds of North America. They'll most definitely be worth the wait!

Summit Boulder Jct

I grabbed my Frost River Summit Boulder Jct bag for this review. 40 litres is fine. In spring and summer in my book clothing is stuff I wear so I dont need a big pack. In autumn and winter I am usually wearing my waterproofs or they are drying on the outside of the pack in a mesh bag. So weight? The bag is 3.5lbs. A mess tin with lunch/snacks in the back pocket is usually enough food for me. The extra large Forest River shell bag goes in the main compartment. Thats 1.7 lbs and takes up about 25l. Yes the shell bag is in there and just goes from pack to pack so I am always super organised. Tools and everything I need for camp and to spend the night fits in there. German army sleeping mat fits nicely and is functional. On the outside is my umbrella for sun or light rain and everything cinches down tight. Water goes on the shoulder straps. I went for buckskin which is super comfortable and sternum straps. Still lots of room - at least 15l to spare for gear or extra water and food if you really need it. Next thing I pull out is my Trangia 25 stove set which fits perfectly in the bottom compartment if I am "cook". You can see I am old school! 2lbs. Or yes the Minimo and gas. Tarp/Lightweight tent and sleeping bag in there if not. Still room for waterproofs and bag waterproof cover. So with a good choice of the right gear for me I hardly notice I am wearing this great looking pack as I swing along.

The Versatile Boulder Summit Pack

I appreciate the thoughtful design of this pack and how versatile it is without sacrificing the minimalist approach! The capacity matches my 71yr old modest frame without tempting me to bite off more than I can chew. Beautiful craftsmanship will ensure its heirloom status.

Vertical and nicely sized.

Vertical orientation is what I wanted and got, enhanced by bottom enclosures with separate zipper access. Its medium capacity disciples one not to
overload, something this age-75 guy must consider.
