|Popcan P&G - subpop style|
Circumference profile: 43 / 42 / 40.5
Volume: 3,800+ This combination of features is essentially a Subpop (cord drawstring compression system - no comression straps) that is broadened enough at the upper half to carry a standard bear cannister (can) horizonally with a bit more room than the Chasm (41"). Carrying cannisters horizontally is more effective. The pack bag then tapers back down at the bottom to a smaller circumference. Sarc Windsauks actually have larger bottoms.
The Popcan can carry a normal bear cannister horizontally in it's upper half - but with some room to spare. Having extra room means the bag is less likely to wear when rubbed against objects. The pack in these pics actually has a Bear Vault cannister at the top. Kangaroo pocket has drawstring on its inside. Compression cords are not attached and are not necessarily needed for good pack function. Our strong twin 7075-T6 stays make up for a lot!
A S-Sarc can already carry a cannister horizontally throughout it's length but is larger at the bottom than the Popcan.
