Specs / Material

The Silverback is a versatile mid-size pack built for maximum durability and light-as-air, essentials-only travel.

When rough terrain calls, the Silverback 50 answers. Crafted from resilient Extreema fabric and free of exposed mesh, the burly Silverback lets you slip through dense brush snag-free. Eminently hackable, the Silverback lets you choose your carry - use the same belt that fits the Mariposa and the Gorilla. Or remove the frame and use the fast belt.

  • Removable top lid (brain)
  • Spacious rear pocket for gear storage like crampons
  • Trekking pole hardware for storing them outside the pack 
  • Internal hydration sleeve and drinking tube keeper
  • Side lash loop for ice axe
  • Removable internal stay system and removable belt
  • Tough and durable Extreema fabric

The Silverback uses the same hipbelt as the Mariposa and Gorilla so you can use the hipbelt with pockets or the new fast belt will work if you take out the frame!
