The Swift X is designed to be lightweight, durable, and comfortable. Because we want the pack to be comfortable, the pack weight will vary depending on the configuration. Configured as a Frame-less pack with Pack Bag and Shoulder Straps, The Swift X comes Read more..
The Swift X has a 36-liter main bag with another 4-liter in the extension collar. In addition to the interior space, The Swift X incorporates two 1-literside pockets and one larger 3-liter center rear pocket. The two side pockets feature a gusseted bottom and an elastic compression strap on the top.
The large center rear pocket is perfect for storing the quick access gear you don't want to have to open your pack to retrieve. We use a 4-Way Woven Stretch material for all of our pockets so gear can breathe and the pockets can last.
The Swift X also incorporates a top Y-strap with more than enough webbing to accommodate a bear canister, bag of chips, sit pad, or whatever else you want to throw up there.
Both the Hip Belt and Shoulder Straps also incorporate two pockets each.
Compression straps along both sides of the Swift X allow you to quickly size the pack to your needs.
By default, The Swift X comes with a Delrin Hoop Stay frame. Unlike many packs utilizing a similar stay, we bend our stay so that the bottom terminates at the base of your hip belt. This transfers the weight directly to your hip belt.
Other packs terminate the stay at the outer edges of the pack. Unfortunately, this significantly reduces the load transfer from the pack to the hip belt. It leads to the pack sagging as the pack load is not properly supported.
Using the Hoop Stay and Hip Beltincreases your load carrying capacity by approximately10 lbs / 4.5 kto30+ lbs. / 14 k.While you can carry additional weight, we still recommend a base weight of12 lbs. / 5.5 kor less.
While there are many Frame-less packs on the market these days. There are none with an Adjustable Torso Length. The Swift X allows you to adjust the torso length to adjust to both your body and the conditions you may encounter. There are times, depending on your load and trail conditions, when you may raise or lower your pack for optimal comfort.
When configured as Frame-less, you'll want to keep your base pack weight around 8 lbs. / 3.5 k and maximum weight below 25 lbs / 11 k.Comfortable weight depends significantly on the type of load carried and your conditioning.
