ALPS OutdoorZ Elite Pack System [First Look]

by HuntStand


Go farther. Hunt harder. That’s the gist of the new ALPS Elite Pack System that features a lightweight frame and interchangeable pack bags developed for extreme wilderness hunters. The ultralight modular Elite frame and pack bags, built using 500D Cordura fabric, are ideal for hunters who require a lightweight, ultra-strong system. It’s ready to haul meat and gear through the most adverse terrain and weather conditions.

The ALPS Elite Pack System centers on the all-new Elite frame (3 lbs. 10 oz.), which is fully adjustable and 30-percent lighter and 30-percent stronger than previous pack frames. Two pack bags are offered with the Elite system. For short trips or ultralight bivouacs, there is the Elite 1800 pack bag, (1 lb., 12 oz. w/included rain cover and drop-down weapon pocket). For multi-day backcountry trips, the Elite 3800 pack bag (2 lbs., 7 oz w/rain cover) features a 3800 cu-in. capacity, drop-down pocket, and exterior spotting scope pocket.

One more nice thing about the ALPS Elite Pack System is that it’s completely modular. In addition, all components are available for purchase separately.  So you can customize this neat system to your very specific needs. MSRPs range from $49.99 for an Elite Waist Belt in size small, up to $499.99 for the Elite Frame w/Elite 3800 Pack Bag.

Got a backcountry elk or mule deer hunt on the horizon? How about a western spring black bear hunt? Are you the kind of hunter who wants to maximize speed and efficiency in the backcountry? Well, this exciting new pack system might be for you. Why? Because it will help you range farther and hunt harder, and pack your hard-earned trophy in comfort.
