The Summit series of packs are based on the traditional knapsack. It's a classic and enduring design that works. Our Summit Expedition goes a step further with upgraded pockets, external lash points, premium materials, and USA construction.

Description

Summit Packs are simple, classic, and yet refined knapsacks. It's been said "It's all you need!" Just toss stuff inside, throw your shoulders through the straps and go. No need to meticulously pack contents (though it's better to pack carefully) the Summit's won't mind. The Summit Expedition takes the same simple charm of our original Summit Pack and adds 2-in-1 side pockets. They'll carry a water bottle or thermos with ease and offer additional storage between the pack body and pocket. There's also a gusseted front zip pocket to stow small items. Lash squares are solidly stitched on the top lid to secure items to the exterior of the pack.

    Raw Reliability

The whole pack is made from our 18oz waxed canvas, the leather straps are hearty and reliable, all the hardware is solid brass. It's all you need and a little extra. Made at Frost River in Duluth, Minnesota. 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! Frost River Canvas My State Buckskin Patch Info Below.

Great backpack!

My first use of the pack was for a week-long trip and it gobbled up everything I needed. I bought the pack for shorter travel but decided to try it to see if it would work for longer trips. No problem!

It's everything I thought it would be and then some. I really like the buckskin shoulder straps and sternum strap.
