$79.95 -- Alloy BigStik™ - 55 inch. The strongest aluminum hiking pole you can buy because it's made with 3/4" anodized 7075-T9 Easton aluminum tubing. No bending with all your weight on it. Lifetime breakage warranty. The top three sections are hollow so you can divert water from a stream or seep into your bottle. Also, you can leave one Section at home to make a 6 ounce 38" tall traditional walking cane. Slide/Lock Foam Grip you can position anywhere. The patented joints have no wiggle and cannot slip or collapse and are stronger than the tubing. Includes three hollow 14" sections, and one 14" Epoxy/Glass filled Tip section, and a rubber top cap. Packs down to 18" long. Weighs 9.0 ounces (255gm). All the accessories below will fit. Free Shipping to 50 States. Scroll down to add international postage.

$94.95 -- Alloy BigStik™ - 69 inch. We add one 14" Section to the 55" Alloy BigStik above. If you do the Texas Toothpick swap it will be 66" long.

$9.00-- Alloy Texas Toothpick Swap - We swap out one of the standard 14" Sections for a 10" Texas Toothpick Section so the packed length is still under 18". (This makes your Stik 4" shorter.) You can jam the Toothpick into the dirt for a camera monopod, or shelter pole. Great for self-defense too. The point is not sharp like a knife... it's smooth polished aluminum. The toothpick has a notch that enables you to break 2 inches off the pointy tip if by mistake you take it to the airport and don't want it confiscated.

$149.95 -- 55 inch Carbon BigStik™. The hand feel and secure grip on this carbon staff is amazing -- high friction plus it never feels hot or cold. This four piece staff weighs 9oz (255gm) using three Carbon Sections (two 15" and one 11") and a 14" Aluminum tip with an Epoxy/Glass fill at the bottom for great grip on all trails. Accessories include a Slide/Lock Handstrap, a moveable Foam Grip, and a rubber top cap. You can flip the BigStik upside down to use the rubber cap for quiet walking on pavement.

$10.00-- Carbon Texas Toothpick Swap - We swap out one of the standard 15" Sections for a 11" Texas Toothpick Section (so the packed length is still under 18"). This makes your Stik 4" shorter. You can jam the Toothpick into the dirt for a camera monopod, or shelter pole. Great for self-defense too. The point is not sharp like a knife... it's smooth polished aluminum. The toothpick has a notch that enables you to break 2" off the pointy tip if by mistake you take it to the airport and don't want it confiscated.
$50.00-- Double Wall Upgrade - When we build your Carbon BigStik, we insert and bond the entire length of each Carbon Section with the same aluminum tube used in the Alloy BigStik. The Double Wall construction makes this BigStik stronger than any other hiking pole, even a heavy oak stick. Usable as a Bo Staff for martial arts battles. Or do chin ups. Need a strong tent stake??... You can drive the Double Wall Texas Toothpick into the ground with a hammer or big rock. The BigStik is still hollow all the way through for water diversion and storing the plastic vials listed above. The 55" BigStik will weigh 15 ounces. Free USA shipping... scroll down to add international postage.
$25 -- International Shipping. USPS Priority Air Mail postage for one BigStik to Canada, Europe, and most other countries.
$40 -- UPS 2nd Day Air to 50 States for one or two BigStiks.

The BigStik is the ideal staff for weekend walks or a PCT thruhike. The BigStik won't fail you in the middle of nowhere. LifeTime Breakage Warranty because this is not a new, unproven product; we sold the first BigStik 11 years ago. All aspects of the design have been tested and proven... and the patented joints really work. The grip on rocks is surprising because we add special fillers to the aluminum/epoxy tip... Jay Gourley (6/27/2019) wrote: "The 2500 miles were 80 to 90 percent rocky stone trails. The kind Id expect would most shorten a tips life. And by the way, Ive always been impressed from the start with how well such a hard epoxy surface grabs a rock face. Obviously not Vibram, but much better than I would have expected from any verbal description."

Change the grip height of your BigStik every few seconds on rocky up and down trail sections. The Slide/Lock Hand Strap uses a Prussik knot that slides easily when you push up or down where the cord encircles the staff, but grips instantly and never slips with downward pressure on the hand loop.

The anodized aluminum tip has epoxy/glass fill at the bottom that sticks on rocks better than the standard tiny carbide bump, and lasts 2,000+ miles. And the fat tip does not damage tree roots and trails like those tiny pointy carbide tips. For paved roads, sidewalks and airports simply flip the BigStik upside down when you hit pavement to use the quiet rubber tip. All the carbon sections are hollow... airport security can see right through. Or, the BigStik becomes a long pipe to collect water from hard to reach streams or seeps. Packs down to 18" long to fit easily in your pack or suitcase.



Calorie Burn Information: Want to carry less food and not get hungry?... hike with ONE BigStik. Want to burn more calories to lose weight?... then buy two BigStiks. In the Feb 19, 2013 issue at www.gizmag.com: "According to the American Nordic Walking Association walking with two poles burns more that 40 percent more calories per hour and works more muscles than normal walking." If you are a long distance hiker, then use one BigStik and, on easy trail sections, swing it horizontally in your hand for the most efficient natural stride... allowing you to carry less food weight.
$50 -- 9" Monster Carbide Tip. This hunk of carbide will last for 100,000+ miles and sticks on any trail surface. We epoxy a 3/8" diameter 4 flute solid carbide milling machine bit into the aluminum tip. Lifetime guarantee... if you ever break it or wear it down to nothing we'll send you a new one free. Weighs 3 oz.
$55 -- 14" Monster Carbide Tip. We epoxy a 3/8" diameter 4 flute solid carbide milling machine bit into a 14" long aluminum tip. Easy for you to saw the top of the 14" aluminum tube shorter if you need a staff of a certain length. Weighs 3.8 oz.

The neoTrekk DuoCook and SimpleStove



$69.50 - DuoCook™ Stove - Two campers can cook and eat, but weighs less than 1 pound. Includes the SimpleStove described below plus two 16 oz cups and a koozie insulated quart mug for heating rehydrated or wet meals. You can make two different hot drinks at the same time. The SimpleStove jar that fits inside the big mug will hold 10 ounces of alchohol, enough to cook 20 meals.

The DuoCook method captures maximum BTUs so it uses less fuel and less of your time than any other cooking system...
1) Put a folded MRE, or a Compleat Entree dish (wet shelf-stable food), or re-hydrated dried food zip bag into the stainless steel cup, then fill the cup half full with water.
2) Sit the cup on one saturated SimpleStove Bar and light. Heat for one minute after the water starts boiling. Set the other cup upside down over the bar to extinguish it.
3) Lift your MRE or zip food bag out of the hot water cup and slide it into the tall koozie insulated mug, then pour all the hot water from the cup into the mug.
4) Slide the SS cup down over the koozie mug to trap heat.
5) ...now put up your tent, take some pictures, etc, while the hot water totally heat soaks your food... about 10 minutes.
6) Pull the SS cup off, open/cut your food bag and eat out of the insulated Koozy with a long handle spoon. The hot water is still keeping your food warm.
7) Make hot cocoa with the boiled/purified water or let it cool and drink it.
$22 - International Postage for DuoCook™ mailed to Europe, Japan, Australia and most other countries.
The SimpleStove delivers all the benefits of the classic coke-can alcohol stove... small, lightweight, cheap, multifuel. But SimpleStove adds cooking talents that work for solo hikers AND for big groups. It is fast, easy, and reliable... and SIMPLE... soak, light, cook, packup.


You need three coke-can stoves to match the power of the SimpleStove.

Makes an EasyMac supper easy with no wasted fuel.

Use three bars for fast cooking with big pots that won't tip over.

Boil a gallon in 12 minutes.

Put bars vertical for max BTUs.

Put bars horizontal for average BTUs.

Put bars flat for minimum BTUs.

bars are cool 10 seconds after flameout.

roast marchmallows

Use the SlowCap for solo meals

Stove with fuel in jar = 1 lb

...power outage at home... use on stove top

pick up with stick in hole

includes windscreen and ground plate

all parts fit into the jar

both weigh 18oz,
both will boil 15 liters

$27 - SimpleStove™ Three Bars with Windscreen, Ground Plate, SlowCap, and Jar. Free USA shipping.
$12 - International Postage for SimpleStove™ mailed to Europe, Japan, Australia and most other countries.

You get the Storage Jar with Windscreen, Ground Plate, SlowCap and the three Foam Bars inside. The SimpleStove can't spill, can't explode, never flames out, can't be crushed, can't melt, doesn't stink, leaves no soot, floats, boilover water won't extinguish the flames, and the bars are OK for carryon. No 'correct procedures' to follow; no warmup time. Cooks faster than all other alcohol stoves because the flame is much bigger. Or, use the SlowCap to cook solo meals with the least fuel. Boils more water per ounce of pack weight than any other stove. One bar with two ounces of ethanol will boil one liter in 5 minutes and continue boiling to 10 minutes.

1.5 oz (40gm) - 3 bars dry.
4.0 oz (115gm) - 3 bars + jar + windscreen/plate + SlowCap
6.0 oz (170gm) - 3 bars saturated.
8.0 oz (225gm) - 3 bars saturated + storage jar.
18 oz (500gm) - 3 bars + jar + screen, full of alcohol.

The 3 bars and the storage jar filled with alcohol will boil 4 gallons (15 liters!) of water. A Pocket Rocket stove plus two small gas canisters also weighs 18oz, same as the full SimpleStove, and will also boil 15 liters. The SimpleStove packs smaller and has no empty cartridges to carry out and dispose of.

Ultralight backpackers can boil 2 cups of water in 5 minutes using one bar under the cup. That will use 1/2 ounce of the alcohol absorbed inside the bar. And there is never any wasted or spilled fuel. If water boils over it will not put out the fire. When you lift the boiling cup off the bar, to put out the fire, just set another cup or pot upside down over the bar. After 10 seconds the bar is totally cool and can be put back into the storage jar. The 3 bars can absorb 4+ ounces of alcohol... that means you can boil your 2 cups every night for a week with fuel left over. The SimpleStove plus fuel for a week is only 8 ounces in your thruhiker pack.

The strongest wind will not blow out the flame... but your water will take a lot longer to boil. The aluminum ground plate and windscreen we include rolls up and stores inside the fuel jar. You don't need to use the ground plate but it keeps the bars clean. Just brush away leaves and smooth the dirt and set the bars on the ground or on a rock. Since your pot is only one inch off the ground, the risk of tipping over is way less than a typical tall stove. Poke a stick or tent stake into the hole to pick up a flaming bar.

Use one or two or three bars for small, medium, and large pots. A saturated bar will burn for 15 minutes. Roast marshmellows, warm your hands, or boil a liter with one bar. All three saturated bars will boil a gallon of water in 20 minutes with flames for an hour. Lay the bars flat for long slow cooking, lay on edge for medium speed cooking, set vertical for really fast cooking. The ceramic foam bars will absorb any kind of alcohol, or use acetone nail polish remover. Ethanol 95% makes no soot, isopropyl 99% burns very clean and is cheap. The storage jar holds 14 ounces of alcohol plus the three bars. The jar is 4 inch diameter by 3 inch tall and seals pressure tight for backpacking. Free shipping to USA addresses. $12 international postage.









The StackPack 'OneKG' Pak-Flat
External Frame Backpack

(Pictures below show some options and accessories.)


We make custom Barrel Bags...
this one from recycled cat food bags.

$329 - StackPack 'OneKG' 66liter External Frame Backpack with 3 Barrel Bags and Hook Belt - 2.2lbs. 20th Anniversary Special: We include a free SitPad and Mesh Back Panels. Yes, this pack is 35 ounces... lighter than any other 66 liter pack you can buy. Weighs a pound less than all the popular packs with half the capacity. And you can take the frame apart to fit into a 16" pizza box or a small tent bag for airline carryon... but we ship your StackPack fully assembled. This configuration has plenty of room for all your ultralight gear and food and water for a week long trek. The frame top section is a slider that telescopes up and down to fit any torso length, guy or gal, from kid to basketball player. Add the Front Pack for even more capacity and optimum center of gravity balance. Free USA shipping. Scroll down for international shipping buttons.


[Maybe you are thinking the StackPack is the only backpack using an external frame with a shelf, and it telescopes to fit anyone? Well, take a look at the new Mystery Ranch Terraframe 3-Zip 50 Pack. This pack holds only 50 liters, it weighs 5 lbs, and the price is $400.


NEW: Our patented Pak-Flat frame can be taken apart and packed down flat for flying or biking. The entire pack... frame, belt, bags fits into a 16" pizza box. The frame uses no screws or bolts... precision machined joints fit with no wiggle and do not work loose while hiking. The frame with shoulder straps weighs only 16 ounces and can be used without the Hook Belt for small loads. We make the StackPacks in Lake Jackson, Texas. The aluminum frame is cut, machined, and assembled in our shop from Easton tubing. The Barrel Bags are cut and sewn in our sewing room using American made racing sailboat fabrics.

The Hook Belt will fit a 24 to 40 inch waist (optional larger size below). The frame shelf holds your gear weight down low creating a stable center of gravity with no towering pack catching on low branches or rock overhangs. The base configuration will be very comfortable if your BMI is near average. You should look at some of the options below if you are very tall, or thin, or overweight, or have old injuries, or need to carry more weight for longer distances, or travel by jetplane or motorcycle or bicycle.



(If you want to investigate more technical details, please scroll down. If you want to really enjoy your next adventure, click the above 'Add to Cart' button now and place your order right now.)

The fabric is shiny black triple layer racing sail fabric that does not get hot in the sun... and dirt does not stick to the shiny surface. You don't carry a raincover because the StackPack is totally waterproof and absorbs no rainwater (where most packs gain 1-2 lbs when the fabric gets rain soaked.)

The three Barrel Bags will hold 66 liters of gear... plenty of room for a hiker carrying a deluxe set of ultralight gear. You might ask why we use round bags, not rectangular... that is because any fabric bag stuffed tight will end up round. And all pack bags should be stuffed full to keep the load stable and quiet. With three Bags, every piece of your gear is easy to reach in a few seconds via the full width velcro openings. No zippers to jam or rip open or leak. If you need even more room you can add the optional BigLoad Tube and carry four or five Barrel Bags.

The standard endcap fabric on the Barrel Bags is a gray grid pattern. You can add a clear vinyl pocket to hold your phone or snacks. Barrel Bag seams are waterproofed... you can lay the frame down on the water and float it across a steam and nothing inside will get wet. You can add the Front Pack and other accessories listed below to best fit your style and mission.

The StackPack does not squeeze your back like an internal frame pack... it floats an inch or two away from your spine. You can wear a down parka and it will not get compressed. The Mesh Back Panels allow you to tighten up the shoulder straps and keep the pack tight against your back if you are running/jumping a trail section. The SitPad shown in the top photo creates an instant high back trail chair and protects the bottom Barrel Bag if you set your pack down in thorns or knarly rocks.
Lifetime Warranty, 30 Day Free Trial, and Free USA Shipping (scroll down for international shipping) If the StackPack does not work for you, just send it back for a full refund.


Hello Bruce,
"We bought two 'scratch and dent' Luxurylite packs from you years ago....
-- Debbie Kramer -2018
P.S. It's still the most comfortable pack either of us have worn. And since I herniated L5-S1 a few years ago, the ONLY pack I will wear. I'm so grateful that it exists :)"

>>>Download the StackPack User Guide (1.5 meg MSWord file)


$20 - StackPack SitPad/Shelf - The SitPad/Shelf folds out to make the StackPack into a cushioned high back lounge chair. You can set the pack frame to any lean angle from straight up... or way back to take a nap. When hiking it wraps over the bottom Barrel Bag to stop wear and tear when you set the pack down on rocks or thorns or sharp junk in the truck. You can attach another SitPad so it sits on top of a bear canister so the Barrel Bag will not get worn against the sharp edges of the canister. Or you can add a SitPad at the top to make it fast and easy to attach/detach your foam pad.
$17 - Add one End Pocket to a Barrel Bag - The pocket is made with clear vinyl made for sail windows with a 3-1/2" hole in the middle so you can see what you stuffed in there (not the mesh pocket shown in the pack photos). Any cellphone will slip in, or snacks, or Swiss Army knife, etc. Or print an ad for your business and slip it inside. Drain hole at the bottom.

$15 - Upgrade to XL Hook Belt - Longer webbing strap fits 35" to 55" waistlines.


When you hike with the StackPack there is no more:
• adjusting dozens of straps,
• fixing jammed zippers, (none)
• packing stuff sacks,
• sweaty back in summer, (full ventilation)
• cold back in winter, (no compression of jacket down)
• unpacking everything to find one thing on the bottom
• stopping to put on the rain cover, (rainproof)
• fighting the bear canister, (totally visible)
• clicking/unclicking a sternum strap, (none)
• pack tipping over into the mud, (stands on its own)
• walking hunched over to balance your load,
• picking thorns out of your waist belt,
• wiping mud off your waist belt,
• carrying a little rucksack for side trips,
• re-organizing all your stuff inside your tent,
• leaving your pack on at the rest stop.



$55 - StackPack Air Mail shipping to Japan, Australia, EU, and many other countries.
$35 - USPS shipping to Canada.
$45 - UPS 2nd Day Air shipping option to 50 States for one Stackpack.


"Muchas Gracias mi amigo," Denis (Red Leader) Hazlewood...

"I have been proudly carrying my LuxuryLite backpack since 2003, when Bruce put one together for me at his booth at the ADZPCTKO (Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick Off), at Lake Morena, CA."

"During these fifteen years I estimate I've carried the LuxuryLite on more than fifty five backpack trips, and, several dozen dayhikes. My LuxuryLite has been to the Grand Canyon, the Lost Coast, five National Parks, eight State Parks, and at least a dozen Wilderness Areas."

"In all those years, on solo hikes, and leading trips for our backpacking group, Carrying A Good Thing Too Far, I've only carried one other pack one time, when I loaned my LuxuryLite to a woman who had never carried a backpack before. I wanted to be sure she'd have pleasant memories of her first backpacking experience. (and she bought one right after)"

"All these years on the trail, I've been asked about my unique ["I've never seen a backpack like that before, tell me about it."] LuxuryLite, by uncounted numbers of hikers, and know that I've sold that pack to at least seven hikers, just because I couldn't shut up about how much I LOVE THIS BACKPACK. I've backpacked since 1967, and carried about twenty different backpacks; believe me: This is THE ONE."

"I use the *original* hook-belt model, and have carried as much as fifty five pounds, with no pain, or problems. Also, the LuxuryLite carries one small cylinder, for a day hike, with no problems at all. Most backpacks don't work well without, at least, some kind of load. Not so with the LuxuryLite; a little or a lot, it does the job with style, and in comfort."

"And then there's the personal service you get from Bruce. Got a problem? Call Bruce and get it straightened out, right now. This guy is amazing, and a hoot to *brag and lie* with; after all, he IS from Texas."


$15 - Back Straps. If you really like the hug-tight feel of internal frame packs, you will like this pair of breathable fabric straps that hug your back and add comfort when carrying big loads. But your back is still totally ventilated. Colors may vary. You can tighten up the two shoulder straps to make the pack hug you tight for technical trail sections. Easy to install or remove... just take off the Slider and slip them up off the vertical tubes. 0.8oz.

$20 - Hook Belt Pad Set. If your body type is very thin, or you are under 65 inches tall and normal weight, these pads can let you hike longer and not have sore spots at the end of the day. Also very beneficial if you have a bad back and need to set the shoulder straps loose so there is no weight compressing your spine. You get a neoprene waist wrap that goes under your clothes and two hip pads that can positioned anywhere along the Hook Belt to cushion your hip bones.


$85 - Stackpack BigLoad Package. You get the Frame Riser Shelf that pushes the weight up higher so it feels like the balance of a typical internal frame pack. If you need to carry more gear volume and/or weight, these two Frame Upgrades are a good choice. Carry bulky items like a chainsaw or firewood. Comes with two 3" and two 6" spacer tubes so you can set a shelf spacing of 3, 6, or 9". Add the BigLoad Tube on the Frame Slider to set the shoulder strap height independent of the number of Barrel Bags you are stacking on the top Shelf. The BigLoad Tube is also good if you want to put weight onto the shoulder straps, not just the waist belt... for a feel like traditional internal frame packs.


$15 - StackPack BigLoad Tube. If you won't be needing the added height of the Riser Shelf, you can buy this tube alone. You slide the BigLoadTube onto the Frame Slider. This allows you to set the shoulder strap height independent of the number of Barrel Bags you are stacking on the Frame Shelf. The BigLoadTube makes it easy to put more weight on the shoulder straps and less on the waist belt.



$25 - Front Pack / Hydration Pack / Rucksack - This unique Front Pack makes your total load feel 10 lbs lighter because the Front Pack hangs out in front counterbalancing the weight inside the backpack. You can snug up the straps to keep it tight against your chest when you going up or down steep/rough trails. The clear pocket on top holds your maps, permits, and you can operate your touch screen phone through the plastic cover. The bottom of the Front Pack has a beaver tail strap that slips behind the pack's waist belt, carrying most of the weight. Each top strap is looped over the top posts on the StackPack frame. Three compartments... in the middle compartment you put snacks, camera, GPS, etc; and the large compartment will hold four 1 liter water bottles.. a whole gallon. A DayPack too... the straps can be buckled on to the bottom to make a little BACKpack for side trips or water refills. Made in China. 600 cuin capacity, weighs 9 oz, 12" x 18" flat with 9x12 clear vinyl window.


"I recently received a luxurylite back pack for fathers day from my kids. They knew I was going to Philmont... and knew that I was getting tired of my old heavy back pack... I love the backpack and it did exceptionally well during our 80 miles at Philmont.
On one occasion, our crew opted to hike down to Cyphers mine with our lunches and eat there. So instead of someone empting their pack, I had already detached my top bag(smellables) and my bottom bag was empty from setting our tents up. So I took the middle bag off, reattached the bottom bag and filled it with all our lunches and I carried it to Cyphers mine. I barely knew it was on my back.
The only thing that would come close to being a problem while on my trek would be occasionally the frame would pop out of the hook. But, I learned that as soon as I put the pack on I immediately adjusted it from side to side to insure myself that it was completely in the hook.
I love the concept of the three external bags. I could separate my equipment and know exactly where each item I was looking for was located. Thank you so much for this exceptional product. I am sure the "wear and tear" is not any different than any other product. I do a lot of backpacking and the Philmont trek was my first to try this pack out. I can't wait to hit the Buffalo River with my new toy." --Scott


$35 - StackPack Airport Wheels - Turns your StackPack into a wheelie bag for airport travel. Plugs into the bottom of the frame in 5 seconds. Then slide the shoulder straps to max length and pull the frame top tube to its full 36 inch height and roll your new luggage on any hard surface, inside or outside. The Airport Wheels split into two pieces that fit inside a Coro-Case or Barrel bag when not in use. The StackPack frame will sit on the Hook Belt with the Airport Wheels still mounted. Weighs 4 ounces. You can use our optional 14" wide Barrel Bags or the CoroCase for a totally legal carryon size for the overhead bin.

$25 - StackPack Umbrella - Hike in the shade all the time! Plugs into the top tube extensions on either side of the StackPack frame. Weighs 5oz. Packs down small so it stores easily in any Barrel Bag or inside the Front Pack. The opened diameter is 36". You can slide your hand up and collapse the umbrella instantly for tight trail sections. The aluminum shaft telescopes so you can set how close it is above your head. Also use it while sitting in the StackPack Lounge Chair to keep the sun off you or to see your phone screen. Or stop the acorns from smacking onto your head.



............s StackPack WildWheels


$125 - StackPack WildWheels - Plugs into the StackPack frame. Can also be used together with the Airport Wheels. Can be stored against the frame behind the Barrel Bags when you want to scramble or climb. For short rough spots, leave the WildWheels attached and hoist the pack onto your back and hike with the wheels hanging below the pack. They will not hit your legs as you walk. Free USA Shipping.
Converts your StackPack into an ultralight Hiking Trailer that will roll over 90% of wilderness trails. The WildWheels connectors slide up into the bottom of the StackPack Frame and are held to the frame with the Shoulder Strap clips. No bolts, or screws, or hinges. It takes only 10 seconds to attach or detach. If you have a pack that weighs 40lbs the wheels will carry about 30lbs leaving only 10lbs on the Hook Belt. Very stable with a 19" width that rolls down narrow trails. Delivers a smooth ride over rocks, gullies, roots, gravel, smoothly rolls up or down building stairways. If the trail gets too knarly or too vertical just lift the StackPack and set it onto the Hook Belt with the WildWheels hanging down. Walk until the next rolling section, then lift off the pack, extend the shoulder straps to full length and drop the top bar into the Hook to roll on down the trail. Heading into a long stretch of climbing/scrambling/snow.... you can pull the wheels out and stow them up high behind the Barrel Bags. They will even roll great in that position like wheeled airport luggage.

The wheels have sealed ball bearings so you can roll through mud, under water, and along a sandy beach with no problems. The solid tires (no flats) will last thousands of miles. And the wheels are easy to replace... held on with a nylock stainless steel nut. Constructed of anodized aluminum tubing with epoxy bonded joints. Never rusts or corrodes. You can strap heavy gear like ammo boxes to the WildWheels frame... or give the kid a ride! Weight is 2lbs.... the StackPack with WildWheels weighs 4.2lbs, less than almost all other wilderness backpacks.

The Frame and padded shoulder straps will fit any torso length, child to adult, guy or gal, no compromise on comfort.

The shoulder strap attachment point can be moved up or down while you are walking to shift weight from waist to shoulders. Bad back?... you cut set the frame and shoulder straps to put all the weight on the Hook Belt and none on your shoulders. The Hook Belt fits waists from 24 to 40 inches (optional large size below).

'Even Flow' Olsen, April 2017 -- "Just ordered a barrel bag for my old original luxurylite external backpack. (2005) Mine was red and you put my trail name on it. Its a great piece of equipment. I have used other backpacks, but always come back to yours. It is the Goldilocks of backpacks - right between the old externals and internals. I carry between 28 and 31 lbs for a week of hiking. Ill be doing a section of the AT late April to late May. Your backpack always creates interest when Im with other hikers. When I show them all the features they are impressed. It has held up well. I did sew a waterproof patch over one hole - easy to do, no leaks. The internal backpackers are jealous because I can get into my stuff easier then they can. They all love that it can be use as a chair."

Touch here to read this entire Review: "I can not recommend this pack enough. As a Scoutmaster for ten years I had an opportunity to try and to see all sorts of external and internal frame packs. This is the best, hands down, in every category. Why do I love this pack Comfortable. No other pack is nearly as comfortable as this. I loaned the pack to my sons girlfriend for her first backpacking trip ever they came back engaged!! At Philmont... " Tom L. September 2014
The StackPack is the lightest 50+ liter 50lb capacity backpack you can buy. Why? Most people think cloth is lighter than aluminum. Not true. To deliver the same amount of structural support, a fabric/foam structure will weigh about four times an aluminum tube frame. And aluminum tubing is lighter than titanium and totally strong enough for a backpack. The breakthrough Hook Belt™ and individual waterproof fabric Barrel Bags makes backpacking much more fun. Your gear stays organized and accessible inside the individual Barrel Bags. You can keep 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 from 20 to 32 inches. You can seup the shoulder straps so there is no compression weight on your spinal column. The StackPack is very comfortable because it is COOL... no insulated pads making your back sweaty and irritated..
"Four or five years ago I got a LuxuryLite pack from you and it has extended my outdoor career far longer than my aging back deserves." Frank Z. 3/2010
All the weight of your gear inside the Barrel Bags rests on the shelf at the bottom of the frame. And, you can set any food canister on that shelf with the Barrel Bags stacked on top. The velcro loops that hold the Barrel Bags to the vertical frame tubes are not weight bearing so we can use ultralight fabric without tearing. The Hook Belt supports all the weight while the shoulder straps keep the pack stable, but loose, comfortable, and cool. The Hook Belt means you can set your pack down anytime, anywhere without the waist belt dragging in the dirt, mud, and poison ivy - and it stands upright and rainproof.

The Barrel Bags can be removed in a few seconds to use inside your shelter like duffle bags. Barrel Bags are made from fabric that is light, tough, and waterproof. You can float this pack across a lake and nothing gets wet. Each Barrel Bag has a full-width Velcro closure (no zippers to jam and leak) that makes access to all gear fast and easy. The frame's vertical side rails extend one inch above the horizontal top tube so you can hang the Front Pack, hiking poles, dog leashes, etc.

You can slide the shoulder straps 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 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. Our Barrel Bags 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.


On the trail since 2005, the StackPack works for overnight trips, national park treks, border-to-border thru-hikes, and any adventure in-between. Yes, it's totally unlike your current pack, like a drone is different from an old RC model airplane.

But you will quickly get used to a pack that you can put on and off in seconds and leaves your torso free to walk and balance naturally. You can configure the StackPack to put no pressure on your shoulders or spine. All the weight can be directed down the aluminum vertical tubes straight to the hip belt and lumbar pad.

The optional Front Pack puts weight out front to correct your center of gravity and make water/maps/GPS/phone instantly handy.

You won't miss all those tiny pockets on your current pack because with the Hook Belt it takes only 3 seconds to have the pack standing upright on the ground or on a stump. And the pack is on your back again in 5 seconds. And you never had to unclick or adjust the shoulder straps or waist belt. AND you can use to Front Pack to access all your items while walking along.

The Barrel Bags eliminate Hassle #1 while hiking... and that is finding that thing you need fast! You have multiple Barrel Bags with long velcro openings that let you reach to anywhere inside fast so every piece of gear is just seconds away. Nothing gets buried two feet down at the bottom of your pack. Nothing falls out of little pockets you forgot to zip, nothing gets wet from leaky zippers.

The Barrel Bags give you flexible capacity For little trips you can use just one or two Barrel Bags. Gear junkie? Need even more room?... stack four or five Barrel Bags for over 100 liters. Or add the new Wilderness Wheels to make an ultralight wilderness trailer.

Tune the frame to your body. If you adjust the shoulder straps a little loose there is no weight compressing your spine. If you lower the frame slider and tighten the shoulder straps you can share the load between shoulders and hips. The external frame enables hiking with the coolest and warmest pack design.... in the summer no hot sweaty pads press on your back. The pack pumps cooling air as it moves fore and aft a little with each step. In the winter, you put the Hook Belt on first, then your parka. Your jacket's insulation stays fully lofted. You just lift the jacket tail before dropping the frame onto the Hook.

Captain Caveman... "Another thing I love about your pack is its' all-around versatility. I love having one pack system I take on every trip, whether I am going ultralight for a few nights, or backcountry fishing for weeks at a time. When I go on canoe trips with my little pack canoe, or when I go on long fishing trips where I wade a lot, I add a big dry bag to the system. I love how my big dry bag (seal line pro pack 115L) is easily attached to the pack frame. I keep most of my gear in the original cylinders, like stuff sacks, to keep my gear compartmentalized in the "black hole". It does add a few pounds of course, but its worth it sometimes. I have actually floated my pack with the original gear cylinders on water crossings, and was amazed that it kept all my gear dry! But, with the dry bag, my pack actually becomes a life raft. I can lay on it, and paddle right across a pond! I also usually add a go-lite Ion pack as an additional gear cylinder; I keep my essential items in there, and can quickly grab it for short trips away from camp to fish, or gather, or explore, or whatever... Another way I 'customized' the best pack in the world was to add compression/gear attachment straps to the outside. I loop a daisy chain over the top of the frame, or around the vertical posts. I also threaded a nylon strap thru the tube on the outer edge of of the platform. The strap has an adjustable buckle on it. I put a 1oz carabiner on the daisy chain so it slides down to the center, and run the strap thru the biner, clip it into its' buckle, and tighten it down. It makes an X or hourglass shape over all the gear, with the biner roughly in the center. This makes it super easy to stack something else with the cylinders, like sleeping pad, fly rod case, waders, mesh bag of wet stuff, etc... Your Luxury Lite pack really is super light, super strong, and super versatile. A seriously great piece of gear for every trip I take. If I could only take ONE thing with me into the woods, it would certainly NOT be the luxury lite pack. BUT if I could take 2 or more things, the first thing I would grab is my pack!!!!!"

Ultralight with a total weight of 1 kilogram [2.2lbs, 35oz]. Popular packs are about twice the weight... the NorthFace Terra50 and the Osprey Atmos weigh 4lbs, the Arc'teryx Altra 65 and the Kelty Yukon weigh 5lbs. We achieve this level of performance by using artisan construction processes and the optimum materials in our Texas shop. USA sourced 7075-T9 aluminum tubing and fabric are purchased in small batches and quality tested before production. Calibrated milling machines are operated by hand, three different sewing machines are setup and tuned for different fabric components. We make batches of four at a time to insure the best quality and to speed up incorporating new features and improvements.


The modular construction means you can configure a PCT thru-hike pack or an urban travel pack that exactly matches your mission. And, if you lose or break some piece.... strap, frame tube, barrel bag,... that part can be replaced fast, in the field, at a low cost. Want to design your own pack?... you can buy just the Frame with Shoulder Straps and Hook Belt and mount any other bag/bags. The bottom shelf will hold a bear canister, chainsaw, baby seat, etc. See the pictures below for examples.
