Named after the long running Sweet Pea Festival here in Bozeman, this day pack was the first to feature Dana’s unique 3Zip access. The 3Zip design opens really wide for easy access to all your gear. This feature makes loading awkward items (think rack of cams or Pelican case) a breeze. The Futura Ruck frame is ideal for loads less than 30 pounds, but one can easily push this up to 40 pounds with the addition of the Live Wing Waistbelt pads (sold separately). The belt system can be tucked into the sides of the pack for traveling or to stay clear of your harness. If your heading out for a quick trip to a mountain lake, the low profile and compact shape of the Sweet Pea is a perfect companion.
