The ultra-lightweight Vargo Tri-Arc just might change your perception of what an external frame pack can be. Drawing on the design elements of classic load-hauling pack, the Ti-Arc utilizes a premium titanium alloy to weigh in at just 2 pounds, 13 ounces!
The frame provides excellent stability and support at a fraction of the weight of its aluminum predecessors. The rigidity is ideal for confidently carrying loads of up to 35 pounds. An adjustable, padded shoulder harness can be adjusted to account for torso lengths varying from 20"-24" in length. Additional padding in the lumbar region and across the length of the adjustable hipbelt enhances comfort. Load lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap further enable you to dial in fit.
A streamlined 2196 cubic-inch capacity packbag opens wide to make loading and unloading convenient. A collapsible suspension bar gives the pack shape but folds down to aid in accessing the interior of the pack. Two zippered external pockets, elastic water bottle pockets and zippered hipbelt pockets provide additional storage space and there are numerous places to lash gear externally.
