Expedition Packs (5000+ cu in) Product Information

I purchased this super quality expedition backpack many years ago and moved to another state.  My outdoor activities changed and I never got back into remote camping.  So I have a brand new top-or-the-line backpack for sale. Super strong,  heavy duty,  top notch expedition gear,  medium size,  7000 Cu. In,  and holds tons of stuff.                        A common type of review... If you can find one of these, buy it! I've been a backpacker for over 40 years, and have owned a a Dana Astralplane for over 12 years.   I typically start my multi-week trips with about 60 pounds and the suspension system makes the load feel like 50 or less. Over the past 12 years it has seen abuse from falls and other stupidity and hardly shows the wear. Many other packs have similar features, but none of them have the quality and dependability of construction of the Dana packs, which is taken for granted until a pack fails 75 miles from the trailhead. The same holds true for my other 2 packing companions who also use Dana packs                       From Dana.... "They're the most comfortable packs ever built, and the most dynamic. They'll work just as well twenty days down the trail, or twenty years down the line." "The key lies in ArcFlex's active framing that combines the shapability of aluminum/polyethylene framesheets with the resilience of carbon fiber reinforced fiberglass composites for load control. In using these systems we fit every aspect to your specific shape - backpanel, shoulder harnessing, and hipbelts - so that we can distribute teh forces of the load over the greatest amount of your body's real estate. Thsi provides the greatest in load carrying comfort." "We build other performance features, such as Headspace(TM) (a built-in alcove to accomodate your head when looking forward and upward), HipLids (both the lid/top of the pack and the hip belt can detach from the pack, offering a light, small pack for quick trips away from camp) , retractable bottom (to shrink the pack's capacity for light loads, or to create the space necessary to lash on really bulky stuff instead of putting it inside the sleeping bag compartment), and fail-safe closures."   Gear Features HipLid on top, slanted side zips, two huge front pockets, retractable bottom, sleeping bag compartment, sleeping back straps, 1000-denier, black Cordua Plus bottom.  Size Medium, capacity of 7,000 cubic inches / 115 litres. Weighs 7 lb 8oz/3.4 kg.
