Imlay Mystery Backpack

Imlay Mystery Backpack



Simplicity. Durability. These were the attributes I had in mind when making this little pack, primarily for our guiding activities at Zion Adventure Company. Turns out to be a pretty good narrow-canyon pack - kind of like a larger, top-opening Leprechaun.

A 23-liter body, same as our Spry Pack. No lid. A foam backpanel. Padded shoulder straps and a padded, wing-style hipbelt. One outside pleated pocket, big enough for a helmet. Pierced PVC-laminate bottom side panels with mesh behind - for durablility AND drainage. An over-the-top rope strap, and two high compression straps. Inside watertank pocket, and a place to tie a rope, if you want to use it as a rope-bag.
