ACCESSORY PACK FEATURES:
Easy access on the go: This pack offers great on-the-move versatility. No need to stop, take off your backpack, and sort through just to find a piece of gear. The ‘Koala’ lets you keep key items within reach on the go. Featuring an external zipper pocket on the front of the pack, as well as Gridstop separator pocket in the main compartment, large and small mesh pockets allow you to compartmentalize your stuff such as keys, cell phone, etc with pockets sized just right for every item.
Load distribution: Take some weight off your back and put it on the front. This improves weight distribution around the torso resulting in better posture and a more natural and efficient walking position. On multi-day hikes, this small change can be a big difference offsetting cumulative soreness and fatigue.
Water resistant: Safe for keeping fragile items dry in rainy weather. **Made from highly water-resistant Gridstop with PU lining. A highly water-resistant Uretek® zipper will keep the rain out, but not to be submerged. Not seam sealed.
Clip in / Clip out in seconds! Our front packs are designed to work as a single unit with your existing backpack. The ‘Koala’ attaches to the bottom part of your backpack’s shoulder straps using two clip buckles. It takes a few seconds to clip in or out.
Converts to a stand-alone fanny pack: This accessory pack can also be worn directly around you hips. Simply clip in the extension strap and the ‘Koala’ becomes an ultralight fanny pack.
Works together with the ‘Gear Gut’: Your ‘Koala’ can be worn together with any of the ‘Gear Gut’ front packs
