The Mountain Approach Pack is made for swift ascents to glass, quick trips from camp to the creek for water, and silent high-stakes stalks. Minimalist in design, the pack weighs next-to-nothing and rolls up to easily fit in low-profile pockets, including the Mountain Hauler Stash Pocket. Perfect for spontaneous missions, the highly water-resistant seam-taped and roll top closure keeps gear dry when unexpected squalls roll through.


  • Size:

    GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Subalpine is designed for stalking and ambushing ungulates from ground level in tree-covered and vegetated terrain.

    This is an amazing piece. It is meant for carrying water back to camp, but I like to use it as a daypack. It worked great for going to get water in Montana on a backpacking trip. Then it served as my day pack the next morning. I carried enough stuff for my girlfriend and I for about 5 miles up to the next lake that was on our trail. That included two packable rain jackets, two small ziploc bags full of snacks, a water filter, a water bottle, a sitka ascent shirt, and a zoom lense for a camera. I probably wouldn't take much more than that in it, but it worked fine. It packs down small enough to fit in a large cargo pocket or anywhere in your big backpack. I also use it to retrieve trail cameras and other small tasks around home like fishing. For anyone who doesn't need to pack a lot, this pack is for you. I took away half a star only because in warm weather, it makes your back sweat extremely bad since it's not breathable. But that's a minor issue that probably won't happen this fall. In archery season, I'll carry a rain jacket, core heavyweight hoodie, a few snacks, a water bottle, and possibly a down jacket and camera.
