For the versatile outdoorsman who’s all about modularity when it comes to their backpacks, the Ruckbug is something we suggest they strongly consider. It’s not every day that a release offers such a unique design for the hiker, camper, or traveler. It’s what makes this all-in-one backpack so adaptable, a highly valued trait for any outdoor-centric pack.
Thanks to the Ruckbug’s innovative design, this backpack is literally two packs in one. It’s all made possible due to a detachable main frame from the bag itself that reveals a carrying system for hailing larger bulky items with ease. Its wooden frame also helps the pack stand on its own and a stretch-over water-repellant closure system with a sealing collar offers added protection from the outdoor elements. There’s also a set of side pockets with straps to enclose and secure larger items such as an ax or pair of shoes and the front lower storage keeps items such as a sleeping bag secure to the pack as well. No word on pricing just yet but the pack looks to become available by fall of 2017. [Purchase]
