$195 - StackPack OneKG - 66liter External Frame Pack with 3 Barrel Bags and Hook Belt - 2.2lbs. This configuration works great for most hikers doing weekend treks carrying about 30lbs. Plenty of room for all your ultralight equipment. The frame will be very comfortable if your body type is near average. Fits any torso length. The Hook Belt fits 24 to 40 inch waist. You carry the weight down low, a good center of gravity and no catching on low branches or rock overhangs. 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 you should look at some of the options below. The black fabric does not get hot in the sun... the shiny surface reflects sunlight and dirt doesn't stick. No rain cover needed because the StackPack is totally waterproof and absorbs no rainwater, where most packs gain 1-2 lbs when soaking wet.

The three Barrel Bags will hold 66 liters of gear... plenty of room for a hiker carrying a deluxe set of ultralight gear. And every piece of gear is easy to reach in a few seconds with the full width velcro openings. If you need more room you can add one or two more Barrel Bags when you add the BigLoad Tube.

The color of the fabric on the Barrel Bag endcaps will vary from the pictures... your pack will be a little different from any other pack we sold. Barrel Bags are waterproof... lay the frame down on the water and you can float it across a stream and nothing inside will get wet. You can add the Front Pack and other accessories listed below. If you order options when you order your Pack, we will install all of them. But all the options are easy to install or remove at any time. Free Shipping, Lifetime Warranty, and 30 Day Free Trial. If the StackPack does not work for you, just send it back for a full refund.

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

$60 - UPS 2nd Day Air shipping option to 50 States for one Stackpack.
$75 - Air Mail shipping to Japan, Australia, EU, and most countries.
$45 - Air Mail shipping to Canada.



$25 - FlatPack Frame Option - The only difference from the standard frame is the ability to slide out the vertical tubes from the shelf so you can pack it down to 14x22x1 inch. Mesh Back Panels shown in photo are not included.

$15 - Mesh Back Panels. If you like the huggy feel of internal frame packs, you will like this pair of mesh fabric panels that hug your back and add comfort when carrying big loads. Width is 2.5" and colors may vary. You can tighten up the shoulder straps to make the pack fit tight and snug for technical trail sections... but still be totally ventilated. Easy to install or remove... just slide them up off the vertical tubes. 0.8oz.

$25 - 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. Comes with two 3" and two 6" spacer tubes so you can set a rise 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 Frame Shelf. The BigLoad Tube is good if you want to put weight on the shoulder straps, not just the waist belt... 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.

$15 - StackPack SitPad- This SitPad serves two purposes... protects the bottom Bag from wear and tear when you set the pack down on rocks or thorns or sharp junk in the trunk. And the SitPad slides 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.


$30 - 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 Umbrella - Hike in the shade all the time! Plugs into the top tube extensions on either side of the StackPack frame. Weighs 7oz.

You can slide your hand up and collapse the umbrella instantly for tight trail sections. The umbrella 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 to see your phone screen. Or stop the acorns from smacking onto your head.

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.


$95 - StackPack Frame with Shoulder Straps. Make your own custom pack. This telescoping aluminum frame fits any torso length, child to adult, guy or gal, no compromise on comfort. Mount any bag or container you want to use. The maximum height of 36 inches gives you the room for any pack bag.

$35 - Standard Hook Belt fits 24 - 40 inch waist. Will work on any LuxuryLite pack frame made since 2002. Weighs 8oz. This new version makes it easy to lock the belt's Hook to the frame tube using a loop of velcro for hikers into running and jumping down the trail.

The Frame and padded shoulder straps will fit any torso length, child to adult, guy or gal, no compromise on comfort. No sternum strap needed because you can slide the shoulder straps along the top bar. 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. Iíll be doing a section of the AT late April to late May. Your backpack always creates interest when Iím 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 Ė Comfortable. No other pack is nearly as comfortable as this. I loaned the pack to my sonís girlfriend for her first backpacking trip ever Ė 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.


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,
• don't want to wrestle the pack off/on at a rest stop.

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.
