Dirtbag Dreams

I love the look of this pack. It takes the classic look of ultralight backpacking (dyneema-like fabric and roll-top closure), and attaches a durable frame. This is a pack is made for the hiker who wants the miles to fly under their feet, and look to carry more than your stoveless thru-hiker.
