Occasionally I get some pretty interesting custom pack requests.Check this pack out I just finished for a customer. It's designed to carry a full mtb on the back and skis. There are alloy stays sewn onto the front to keep the daisy chains open and the pack from collapsing with the weight of the bike. Full ski slots . For dave at bikeboards.
it's a big pack by alpine luddites standards, 60-65 L. it features the roll top/drawcord bivy extension so it can be used without the lid as a roll top pack. There are ballistic nylon ski sleeves, stretch fabric water bottle pockets, our BAH (big ass hip belt) with removable feed pockets and our widest (three inches) curved shoulder straps. This is definitely a general mountaineering/backpacking style harness.
I have been getting an increase of requests for general mountaineering and large classic packs. I developed this harness to fit the need. You'll see a Synergy Works pack in the next blog post with the same harness.
