For the committed backcountry hunter willing to work harder and go further to enhance their experience, the Sitk Mountain Hauler opens a world of opportunity for extreme and extended mountain pursuits. The primary bag expands from 65 litres to 80 litres to easily take your meat on the load-hauling shelf, and gear can be separated and stowed internally below the load shelf in the Mountain Hauler Dry Bag.
All load-bearing components are directly secured to the frame for an extremely efficient transfer of energy and 3-layer multi-density hydrophobic foam pads in the hip and shoulders provide cushioning that won’t chafe under a full pack. Components used during a successful harvest are SITKA orange, providing intuitive functionality to assist hunters who may be experiencing fatigue or stress while packing out an animal. Adjustable suspension and medium or large options in both the hip belt and shoulder yoke enable simple custom fitting.
Weighing in at a mere 3kg but rated to comfortably carry +65kgs, the new Mountain Hauler is capable of conquering the most ambitious backcountry hunts.
The frame is constructed from 6061-T6 Aircraft-grade Aluminum, which offers an incredibly high strength-to-weight ratio for a maximum haul with minimal strain.
All load-bearing components are secured directly to the frame to maximize efficient energy transfer, enabling the hunter to carry more and walk easier with less strain and fatigue.
The primary bag expands from 65litres to 80litres to easily place meat on the internal load-hauling shelf without adjusting confusing straps, and gear can be separated and stowed internally below the load shelf in the Mountain Hauler Dry Bag. Total capacity is 102 litres, with 9 litres in the lid and 11.5 litres in the rear pocket.
Two size options in both the shoulder yoke and hip belt enable simple custom fitting, and 3-layer multi-density hydrophobic foam pads in the hip and shoulders provide cushioning that resists moisture from sweat and won’t chafe under the weight of a full pack.
