Trail Blazer MAIN

The Alps OutdoorZ Trail Blazer is a 2,500 cubic-inch pack built to handle all-day adventures, yet designed in a way that minimizes bulk. A large main compartment accommodates big items and layered clothing, while a zippered front pocket stows smaller, quick-access gear. Additional storage comes via lower side mesh pockets with cinch straps to keep items like water bottles or a bipod handy and secure.

When negotiating rugged terrain or dragging out large game, the integrated and expandable gun/bow pocket offers hands-free carry. Also integrated into the pack is a blaze orange rain cover that keeps contents dry in wet weather, while providing clear identification when hauling out game.

Trail Blazer Rain Cover

To ensure a comfortable carry in every environment, the Trail Blazer comes with a padded back panel that incorporates a sturdy PE frame sheet for added support. Padded adjustable shoulder straps with load lifters and an adjustable sternum strap and waist belt provide a custom fit for comfort.

Additional features of the Trail Blazer pack include an internal hydrational bladder pocket and tube port, bar-tacked webbing across the lower front panel, and a front lashing system to secure your weapon or other large items. Camo options include Realtree Edge and Mossy Oak Country DNA.
