The Alpine Ruck from Sitka Gear is ideal for the weight-conscious backcountry hunter. Constructed of a nylon ripstop material, the Alpine Ruck weighs in at just 3 lbs but has a capacity of 2800 cubic inches. A Kangaroo pocket allows you to keep gear that may be necessary for the trip in, close at hand. The main top-loading compartment keeps loads close to your back, providing superior comfort for long hikes. An internal waterproof pocket allows you to store electronic or other water sensitive items away from moisture. The DWR water repellent finish provides additional protection from the elements during wet conditions. External compression straps are perfect for strapping clothing to, allowing you to stay cool and dry on high-exertion hikes. The lightweight weapon carry system allows you to pack your rifle or bow on your backpack, keeping your hands free for stability and safety.
