Customers who received the 1st shipment of ICONS are giving the new bags and suspension incredible reviews. Pre-sales sold us out of our 1st shipment, but we receive another later this week and will be filling orders ASAP. If any of you have a hunt in August please let us know so we can make sure we get your gear to you in advance.
I have been receiving many of the same pack questions and thought answering them below for everyone may be helpful.
I really feel like we nailed this frame by increasing vertical stiffness for load carrying while still maintaining flexion horizontally for an incredibly comfortable wearing pack.
To do this, the Patent Pending 2012 frame is using a new Toray 12K Carbon Fiber and resin formula plus a new Patent Pending production technique. We also made several design improvements that simplify adjustments, eliminate noise and increase durability.
The final production weights of the suspension and bags enclosed below:
ICON Pack Weights: Frame & Suspension 3 lbs 1 oz
5000 Bag 3 lbs 3 oz
7000 Bag 3 lbs 6 oz
By request I shot 2 short videos of the inside of the bag to show the pocketing and storage set-up on Video #1 and how to remove the frame from the bag from the frame on video #2. Let me know what other video’s you want to see on the new packs.
If you are interested in a new ICON please call customer service to order an place a pre-order. We do not charge your card until we ship.
