Brand new from Stone Glacier, the Terminus 7000 internal frame pack is spectacularly lightweight at only 3 pounds, 15 ounces. Featuring a sewn-in internal frame, a 7,000 cubic-inch main bag, and abrasion- and tear-resistant waterproof fabric, this superlight pack is specifically designed for the hardcore backcountry hunter.
The waterproof part is particularly exciting, because it eliminates the need for a rain cover when hunting wet, inclement weather. Rated to carry 150 pounds, you’ll have to be an absolute backpacking animal to max it out. Sporting a 500 cubic-inch lid, internal spotting scope pocket and belt attachments, this pack offers plenty of room to stow all your gear for a long backcountry hunt.
It’s a bit short on pockets (part of making it so lightweight), but the inside has a collapsible 2,200 cubic-inch internal load cell for separating gear or stowing full meat sacks. Buckles, zippers and webbing are all heavy-duty and sturdy. Frame stays are constructed of carbon composite, and the frame is 26 inches high.
The Terminus 7000 has an MSRP of $649. For more information, visit stoneglacier.com.
