The Cutaway Pack - 2021 Version
Pricing reduced due to the release of the 2022 Cutaway
The Cutaway is our flagship pack. Made for thru-hiking, day-hiking, and everything in between.
The Cutaway is a frameless backpack designed to improve accessibility while on the move. 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.
Our 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 specific conditions you will be experiencing.
Please note: The 20" torso length is the only Cutaway size that will fit a Z-Lite or similar 20" wide folding pad in the pad attachment. Shorter torso lengths can fit sit pads or sleeping pads with trimmed widths.
The Cutaway must be used with our Vest or J Straps in order to function properly.
Our hybrid vest straps with bottle pockets are designed for a more balanced load transfer and upfront water access. Made from two layers of breathable mesh, they conform to your body while transferring the load uniformly across the shoulders and torso. Six total strap pockets allow for easy access to snacks, accessories, and soft flasks or 1L water bottles.
Our J straps are designed for comfort and usability. Made from two layers of breathable mesh, they conform to your body while transferring the load uniformly across the shoulders. Four total strap pockets allow for easy access to snacks, accessories, and soft flasks or small bottles.
Our modular system allows for slight lengthening of the straps as well as the ability to angle the straps and relieve any tension points that may appear.
