description Description

When ordering, be sure to add a Prairie Belt for another $117 (and 1lb - for a total of 4.75 lbs empty weight) in your choice of sizes and colors. This pack needs a Prairie Belt.

The light series may not do everything our regular packs do, but they may do everything (and more) that *you* want to do. They're built to carry normal backpacking loads in every bit as much comfort as our regular packs will carry strangely shaped and oversized loads. The Ute light adds a sewn on back pocket and functions equally well as a large daypack (compressed) or a multi-day trekking load carrier. It has the following features:

  • dual full height 7075 aluminum stays
  • partial height removable HDPE framesheet
  • 500d Cordura on stress points
  • 330d Cordura elsewhere
  • 550 paracord side lacing compression on 3/4" webbing tabs
  • dual 1" over the top straps
  • 12x9x23" main compartment secured with #10 ykk zipper and backed up by the over the top straps
  • 12x8x2" top compartment secured with #8 ykk zipper and backed up by the over the top straps
  • 9x2x16" back pocket with slot behind, secured with #8 ykk zipper and backed up by 3/4" closure strap that's long enough to secure a jacket
  • girth hitch style bungy cord straps on back for securing trekking poles and similar items
  • oversize slant cut wand pockets on each side
