Carbon/Aluminum External Frame Backpack
with the breakthrough Hook Belt
The StackPack is the only ultralight (2.25lbs) external frame backpack on the market. It is not designed to replace the classic external frame load hauler... the 10lb military MOLLE is great for that (scroll to the bottom of this page). The StackPack mission is carrying 30 lbs for ultralight hiking on overnight trips, border-to-border thru-hikes, and anything in-between. If you need to carry up to 40lbs sometimes, buy the Front Hydration Pack, below, to carry 10 lbs of water and gadgets. It will counter-balance the backpack load and hardly feel any heavier on your feet. If your total load averages over 40lbs, you should choose another brand of backpack.
Weight is only 32 ounces with two Cylinders on the frame and 36 ounces (1 kg) with three 18" Cylinders.
The telescoping frame automatically adjusts to fit any torso length... no pins or clamps.
Hook Belt can be set for 24 to 44 inch waistline (option below for 35 to 55in)
The bare telescoping Carbon/Aluminum frame weighs 12 ounces; with the shoulder straps - 16 ounces.
Frame will hold from one to four Gear Cylinders.
Capacity with three 18x9 Cylinders is 3434 cubic inches (recommended ultralight configuration)
Carry any bear canister on the bottom frame shelf Click for picture.
(in place of bottom Cylinder).
Carry any heavy item on the bottom shelf (dutch oven, chainsaw, etc)

Sorry, the 20x10" Cylinder is out of stock.
"Four or five years ago I got a luxury light pack from you and it has
extended my outdoor career far longer than my aging back deserves." Frank Z. 3/2010
The StackPack is an ultralight external frame pack... not a traditional load hauler frame pack. The breakthrough Hook Belt and individual gear Cylinders makes backpacking much more fun. Your gear stays organized and accessible inside the individual Cylinders. Keeps all dirty/wet gear isolated from food, cameras, clean clothes. Adjust the waist belt once to the perfect fit and leave it that way all day long because you can slip the frame off and on the Hook just like a beltless rucksack. Your torso length does not matter because telescoping frame adjusts so that the shoulder straps are not weight-bearing. There is no compression weight on your spinal column. The telescoping frame will fit anyone from 4'6" to 6'6" tall. The ultralight carbon/aluminum frame uses epoxy-bonded joints with no welding, and is so strong the frame was tested with 200 pounds of weights with no damage.

All the weight of your gear inside the one to four Cylinders rests on the shelf at the bottom of the frame. And, you can set any bear canister on the shelf with one to three Gear Cylinders stacked on top. The velcro loops that hold the Cylinders to the vertical frame tubes are not weight bearing so we can use ultralite fabric without tearing. The Hook Belt supports all the pack weight while the shoulder straps keep the pack stable, but loose, comfortable, and cool. The Hook Belt means you can set your pack down without the waist belt dragging in the dirt, mud, and poison ivy. You don't need to lean the Stackpack against a tree; set it down anywhere and it automatically stands upright and rainproof.
The Cylinders can be removed in a few seconds to use inside your shelter like duffle bags. Cylinders are made from triple-layer gridstop laminated polyester fabric that is light, tough, and waterproof. You can float this pack across a lake and nothing gets wet. The outside surface is a layer of glossy polymer film that does not absorb any rain or dirt. Each Cylinder has a full-width Velcro closure (no zippers to jam) that makes access to all gear fast and easy. The frame's two vertical side rails extend one inch above the carbon horizontal top tube so you can hang the LuxuryLite Front Pack, hiking poles, etc.
The shoulder straps can be moved right or left along the frame top tube (even while walking) to perfectly fit your shoulders. The waist belt can be set easily from 24 to 44 inches with a moveable Velcro loop strap. There is no click-to-open belt buckle; you can change the snugness of the belt by fractions of an inch for optimum comfort. A set of three Cylinders will hold a lot more gear than a typical internal frame pack rated at the same cubic inches because there are no wasted corners and no double-counted external pockets. You don't need a bunch of little stuff sacks... just pack your gear into the Cylinders and seal up the velcro and click the two buckles.
The StackPack means you no longer need a big collection of packs and luggage for different wilderness and urban treks. One ultralight pack does it all. If you are carrying a small 10-15 lb load, you can leave the Hook Belt in camp. With a single Cylinder on the frame the StackPack weighs only 1.25 pounds (20 ounces). The modular LuxuryLite® StackPack works without compromise for all your adventures... day trips, overnighters, weekenders, global adventure travel, expeditions, or six month thru-hikes. We have been selling LuxuryLite external frame packs since 2002 and we know it is so reliable, we offer a Lifetime Warranty. (see the Home Page for details).
