Advanced Composite Construction
Advanced Composite Construction features an innovative weatherproof
bondable fabric, custom molded components and a compact suspension
system. These packs are constructed with ACT420, a unique airtight
420-denier fabric laminate that enables components to be fused
directly to its surface. Leveraging these bondable properties, a
foam, plastic and aluminum tri-laminate structure forms a Monoframe
backpanel to create a direct link between spine, suspension and bag.
These packs are seam-sealed and combined with a roll top closure
to provide total weatherproof protection.
Adjustable GridLock Suspension System
Bonded to the Monoframe is ArcTeryx's GridLock shoulder strap adjustment system, which allows fast fine-tuning to ensure the optimal fit and ultimate comfort.
