Overview

The Wild Things Racer pack (3000 cubic inches/1.5 pounds), was created specifically for adventure racers who want a pack to last for more than one race. For an average user it should last a lifetime. The reason – the body is 100% Spectra. The price – don’t ask (or look at the bottom of this dispatch).

Wild Things Racer Pack

The body of the Wild Things Racer Pack is 100% Spectra cloth. It has a total of six pockets on the outside. Total volume is 3000 cubic inches and weight is 1.5 pounds.

Features we especially liked are its low weight/high durability Spectra construction, six pockets, and firmly padded shoulder straps and hipbelt.

Wild Things Racer Pack Back

The Racer’s backpanel is an anti-friction wicking fabic. The suspension system is very sturdy for carrying weight.
