VertFlex suspension meets the needs of snow sports athletes who require vertical stability for heavy loads in addition to torsional flexibility for free range of motion while skiing, snowshoeing or snowboarding. We design these packs specifically for winter use, sizing them to be worn over cold-weather outerwear and using water-resistant, high-density foam covered by snow-shedding fabric in the backpanel, harness, and hipbelt. The smaller VertFlex packs rely on a flexible HDPE frame sheet for lightweight, low-profile load support, while the larger models offer additional stability in the form of a perimeter wire wishbone internal frame with a cross-stay.

to maintain a balanced and secure load.

TORSIONAL FLEXIBILITY

to accommodate the dynamic movements of skiing and riding.

MOLDED BACKPANEL

with classic Gregory lumbar pad for optimal load transfer to hips.

SNOW SHEDDING DESIGN

reduces absorbed water and keeps you dry.

INCREASED HIPBELT PADDING

in larger packs to accommodate heavier loads.

OPTIMIZED HARNESS PADDING
