ALPS OutdoorZ Adds Pack Bag for Commander Cargo Frames

NEW HAVEN, Mo. – ALPS OutdoorZ expands the versatility of its low-profile meat-hauling pack frames by offering a new modular pack bag. The Commander Lite Pack Bag is designed to work with the popular Commander Lite or Commander Freighter cargo frames to give wilderness hunters a means to transport both their gear and their game using the same frame system.

The new Commander Lite Pack Bag is a lightweight (2 lbs.), moderate-capacity (2880 in3) pack built for backcountry hunters who need to haul enough equipment for multi-day bivouacs as well as transport game back to the trailhead. The heart of the Commander Lite Pack Bag is a cinch-strap webbing matrix that allows the pack to secure to the Commander Lite or Commander Freighter external-frame pack systems, effectively functioning as a conventional external-frame pack. Upon completion of a successful hunt, the Commander Lite Pack Bag can be separated from the frame system to secure meat and antlers. The Pack Bag can then be reattached to the frame or set aside to allow the frame to be used as a dedicated meat-hauler, depending on the hunter’s needs.

As a wilderness gear transportation system, the Commander Lite Pack Bag is replete with storage options to carry everything the ultralight wilderness hunter needs for a multi-day backcountry adventure. Boasting a capacity of 47 liters, the pack also includes over-sized side pockets, a top-lid zipper pocket for quick-access items, a side pocket to house a spotting scope, and dual side pockets on both sides for smaller gear and supplies. A drop-down gun boot is included for hands-free navigation over rough terrain, and an integrated rain cover keeps gear dry in inclement weather.
