Kifaru Unveils Two Weatherproof X-Pac Sailcloth Ultralight Outdoor Backpacks

Since 1978 Kifaru International has been crafting quality outdoor gear, applying decades of real-world backcountry experience to the development of its deep catalog of made-in-America products. And the Colorado company has now once again returned to the drawing board after emerging from the wilderness to deliver on two ultra-hardwearing new rolltop backpack models: the Minikeg; and the Kutthroat.

The first of the two items is a lightweight 45.8L “Reckoning-style” daypack with a snow-collar lid, while the second is a 66.3L top-loading multi-day pack. Both new Kifaru bags feature X-Pac and DWR-coated 500D Cordura construction, built-in hydration sleeves, and the same advanced frame, suspension, and shoulder and belt strap system found on Kifaru’s Duplex range. Both bags are also offered with the buyer’s choice of multiple shoulder strap lengths, belt-sizes, and a trio of stay options (22” on the Minikeg and 26” on the Kutthroat): straight or curved carbon polymer composite, or aluminum alloy — allowing for a precise fit and all-day comfort. Like all Kifaru offerings, the Minikeg and Kutthroat backpacks are made in Colorado and are backed by the company’s limited lifetime warranty. Pricing starts at $350 for the Minikeg and runs up to $425 for the Kutthroat.
