VertFlex suspension meets the needs of snowsports 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 framesheet for lightweight, lowprofile load support, while the larger models offer additional stability in the form of a perimeter wire wishbone internal frame with a cross-stay.
