The Cutaway

The Cutaway

Our flagship pack. Made for thru-hiking, day-hiking, and everything in between.

A fully accessible ultralight pack

The Cutaway is a frameless backpack designed to improve accessibility while on the move. 28 liters at its smallest, it can expand to roughly 40 liters when using the extension collar and all 8 exterior pockets. The recommended carrying capacity is 25 lb, but this limit can be pushed for short periods of time, such as for water carries. All exterior pockets can be accessed while wearing the pack. If you don’t want to stop throughout the day, you don’t have to.

 A comfortable ride

We designed our straps without structure so they can contour to your body and eliminate point loading. The straps are constructed using a breathable mesh, allowing you to dry out faster. Both chest straps can be height-adjusted to meet your needs.

Get your perfect fit

Our new modular system allows you to mix and match packs and straps for a more personalized fit and look. This system will also allow you to set your straps at various widths, replace pieces independently, and allow you to build your pack for the conditions you will be experiencing.
