Flatiron 42

The new 2013 Flatiron is a piece of back candy that will rock your face off. 

The Flatiron is proof that great things really do come in smaller packages. This  pack’s clean design and size work great for just about any activity but it’s perfect for quick backpacking trips. We’ve found that plenty of you out there wanted a pack in this size range built with the comfort, adjustability and features of a larger pack but still clean enough to carry for everyday use…BAM-POW! We listened and gave you what you so desire. The Flatiron maintains all the right stuff to set itself above all other packs in this size range. Just like its big brothers, the top lid, straps and hipbelt are all removable so you can use a simplified and lighter version of the pack. To improve access to your gear, we put a long vertical YKK zipper that runs up the side and all the way through the top of the pack. For stashing your essentials, we added 2 zippered hipbelt pockets, 2 large stretch pockets on the each side, and a large zippered front pocket. It sports a lighter version of our sturdy sYnc A.C.™ adjustable suspension system, ventilated backpanel, VariCant™ dual-pivoting hipbelt and plenty more features that make all other small technical packs out there tremble before it.
