Lets’ face it, every mother has a favorite child – ours is the Circuit. Weighing in at less than 40 oz (all removable features included), we don’t think there’s a pack out there that can compare to the load carrying capabilities, comfort, and durability of the Circuit pack. If you have your total pack weight down around 30 pounds and want to feel the freedom of traveling light, this is the pack for you. The Circuit has been the most popular pack on the Pacific Crest Trail for the past 3 years according to the Halfway Anywhere annual survey of PCT thru hikers.
The Circuit pack utilizes a 1.2 OZ carbon fiber and Delrin suspension hoop in conjunction with a dense internal foam frame and a single aluminum stay to give you excellent back panel support, maximum load control, weight transfer, and pack rigidity without limiting your range of movement. The Circuit can be ordered with a 12″ to 18″ adjustable harness system that works great for kids. In fact, the youngest person ever to backpack all 2,660 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail was carrying a Kids Circuit!
Original Green, Black, Red, Orange, Blue Blaze, Teal, Grey, and Purple packs are sewn with our 400 Robic Fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen. The Multicam Camo pack is sewn with 500 Cordura Fabric. The Cordura is not quite as tear resistant and a little heavier than the Robic, adding an extra 2 oz to the total pack weight. Now Available in Xpac! Read the “Customization” section below to learn more.
This is one tough pack that will give you years of hiking bliss, even if you are a bit tough on your gear. This pack will take the abuse of a 2,600 mile hike and beg for more.
