    Arete Bag 75

    Frame Sold Separately

    Stone Green
    Desolve Veil

    The 75L is designed for full pack-in, backcountry, multi-day excursions. This large pack will carry all the gear needed for a camp setup including your tent, sleeping bag, food, cooker, change of clothes etc. What sets the Arete 75L apart from standard tramping packs is the hunting-focused design. On top of the meat-hauling design, this pack is fitted out for hunters who carry spotting scopes, and camera gear, and want quick access to these. The inbuilt rifle scabbard also means a far more comfortable carry. It sinches down to a low-profile shape when not packed out so it looks and functions like a smaller bag when the extra space isn't required.

    An internal zippered sleeve on the front allows you to quickly pull out or put away optics attached to a tripod when you are in an area where these are needed regularly. When you're moving long distances and don't need access to these as quickly, two large front pockets can accommodate the tripods and optics in a fully covered position. These front pockets cover the front of the pack, and the outside of these is lined with a hard foam, meaning no matter how you are carrying these valuables, there is a grunty protection layer for them when you place your pack down on its front or rub it up against branches and scrub. In addition, two Auto-lock buckles and straps allow you to quickly lock the gear in place.

    The main body pocket has a full-length zip that allows you to access top-to-bottom gear easily without having to fish through everything from the top down. This main compartment includes a large zippered accessory pocket for gear organization and storage of a water bladder. There are also an additional 6 accessory pockets in the two front compartments and two upper pockets on the hood for fast access to any other necessities. Finally, two water bottle pockets are equipped on the lower sides. The extendable top-loading hood design allows you to adjust the capacity and height of the pack easily depending on what you are carrying.

    The pack body has an integrated rifle scabbard that can accommodate almost all hunting rifle lengths sizes and barrel widths up to that of a standard magnum suppressor. The scabbard is located at the back of the pack (closest to the frame / your back) in order to keep the weight closest to your spine and to minimize sway. The benefit of having two free hands in steep and challenging country can make a massive difference and should not be underestimated, particularly in open country when shots are less likely to be close-quarter surprises, and when overhanging branches are less of a hassle. When not in use the scabbard foot can be neatly tucked away back up inside the pack body.

    It's available in two fabric options. First, the Desolve Veil camouflage option is made from Hydrafuse™ StealthSHELL™ fabric which is softer and quieter for more close-quarters hunting scenarios where noise and stealth are priorities. Second, the Stone Green option is made from an extra-durable Cordura® fabric which is 2x more durable, and suited to a rugged open country where stealth is not as important but the ground it will be dumped on is harder and more abrasive.

    A hidden, blaze orange, rain-cover is tucked away in a pocket at the bottom of the pack for when the weather sets in or when you want to be seen.

    The 75L Arete Bag is part of the Arete Pack System. It fits the interchangeable Arete Pack System Frame, this frame is required for use.
