I build two types of custom packs. First, is a fully designed one off custom pack as described below. Second, is an actual reproduction of an old pack. More information on reproducung an old design please go here.
Need a pack for the west face of Changabang? Ice cragging in the Adirondacks? Cassin ridge? hiking the CDT? the Long Trail? A season in Cordillera Blanca? Hauling on big wall climbs? Have a pack from 30 years ago that's perfect but needs a replacement? We can build A pack just for you. Each pack will have an exact quote based on volume, materials, features.
We offer custom in any size from 20-70 liters. Fabric choices include 500 & 1000 denier Cordura, X pack fabrics by dimension polyant(also know as VX100,VX42,VX21,VX07 and VX 40 UHMWPE), ultra light laminated UHMWPE (spectra) fabrics, 420D pack cloth, 16 oz ballistic nylon, leather, canvas or any other fabric we can get.
All sizing is custom fit. back panel options include, different thicknesses of high density closed cell foam, poly frame sheets and 7000 series alloy frames or nothing depending on the end use of the pack.
we can build packs focused on UL backpacking, general mountaineering/ expeditions, ice climbing , alpine climbing or whatever you think you need. your choice of features for carrying tools, compression straps, haul loops, leather patches, bladder pockets, lid pockets, roll top, fixed or adjustable lids, front zipper access, and colors.
