Super SARC P & G 42 - UHMWPE Ripstop Grid, Full Spectra, 500 Cordura (scroll down)


Circumference profile: 42" / 42" / 42" with approximately a 34" tall bag standard with no extension.

Breaking it down: If an $895.00 S-Sarc P&G seems pricey, keep in mind you do not have to buy the entire pack at once. The base pack's base price is $721.00 (includes water pockets) and can be considered complete in itself. Many packs on the market are only available as 'roll-top' packs. This is how the LBPs can be priced as well - without the upper frame stays or top pocket. For the base price of $721.00 you get a roll top closure pack, with twin 7075-T6 stays that are adjustable in length, a super comfortable hip-belt and back pad, covered Kangaroo pocket, side water bottle pockets, and a Full Spectra rim and bottom that can take almost any abuse you can throw at it. You will probably be impressed how the pack can handle 35 - 40 lbs in this simple mode without the P&G frame extension. It will out-carry anything in its class.



Super Sarcs are popular among backpackers and climbers because of their lightweight simplicity, generous volume, versatility. and excellent performance. S-Sarcs have been in production since the mid-80s and are well tested and established work horses. Even our Spectra S-Sarcs were in production in the early 90s after Scott Fischer got us started with that! Above and below: A 500 Cordura S-Sarc P&G with Full Spectra bottom and shoulder pads.
