First Look: ALPS OutdoorZ Trophy X Pack Bag

posted on April 30, 2019

Following its introduction last year, the ALPS OutdoorZ Trophy X Frame Pack from the company’s Extreme Packs line has earned praise and a favorable reputation in the hunting community for its strong, powder-coated steel frame featuring a simple, yet well-designed shelf and roll-out lashing system made of heavy duty nylon. Now, ALPS OutdoorZ is expanding the pack frame’s functionality with its new Trophy X Pack Bag.

Constructed of 1680D ballistic nylon and 500D Robic nylon for maximum strength and durability in all climates, the Trophy X Pack Bag adds modularity and customization to meet the specific gear- and meat-hauling requirements of the backcountry hunter. It is designed to lash to the Trophy X pack frame via strategically placed sleeves and compression straps for when the frame is loaded with game, or can be secured to the empty frame and used as an external backpack.

Thanks to its stowable shoulder straps, the Trophy X Pack Bag can also be used as a standalone pack. It features an expandable bottom compartment that drops down to add an additional 675 cubic inches of storage capacity, a unique zipper design which offers multi-point access to the main compartment, fleece-lined spotting scope and cell phone pockets, a drop-down gun/bow pocket, a front shove pocket, side mesh pockets and a rain cover. Additionally, the pack bag is hydration bladder-compatible, and the lid at the top of the pack includes a pocket for quick access to frequently-used items.

The Trophy X Pack Bag will be available in May 2019, and has an MSRP of $179.99. A Trophy X + Pack package (pictured above) will also be available with an MSRP of $379.99. For more information, visit
