Gear planning is an intrinsic element of any hunt and as they say "No two hunts are ever the same." Based on your trip duration alone you can see drastic shifts in gear needs. However, one thing that should be consistent in your backcountry outings is the fit and comfort of your pack frame. At Stone Glacier all of our frames and bags are interchangeable, and this allows you to run a single frame with multiple bags to meet the demands and duration of all your backcountry trips. This interchangeable configuration means you don't have to spend additional time fitting new gear as well as benefiting from not having to purchase an entirely new backpack setup.
We offer three frames to choose from: the Xcurve, Krux EVO, and R3. While there are some differences in each frame, they all use the same torso and fitting adjustments, are 26" tall, are built with durable materials, and are made right here in America. We offer 14 different bag configurations that provide ultralight solutions for the day hunter to the hunter going on expedition style 10+ day backcountry hunts.
A couple of common questions people ask when selecting a frame and bag is “How well does that bag compress down?”, “What is the total pack weight (frame + bag)?” and "What does that frame and bag color combination look like?". We have compiled a table below outlining individual frame weights and bag weights. Additionally, you will find a gallery of images displaying various frame and bag color combinations.
