Our Alpine Packs are famous for their simplicity, fail-safe ruggedness, and outstanding performance level. They have been used on many Expeditions around the world over the last 30 years and have adapted well to general backpacking. McHale Packs are Custom Made entirely in Seattle Washington.

If you insist on minimum pack weights, McHale Packs offers these ultra-light packs. You may be able to find even lighter packs, but consider the mechanical advantage McHale Packs offer. Our packs comfortably carry more weight per cubic inch of volume and per ounce of weight. People that go out regularly year after year know that pack performance trumps pack weight. These are not fragile packs. They are made from our standard selection of tough US made and quality imported fabrics ( we tear test all of our fabrics to make sure they meet our standards ) and are built to our reliable high standards. Back in the mid 80s we called our climbing rucksack 'rocksac'. This is were the acronym SARC came from: Super Alpine Rocksac

Jim and Mark did the 2nd ascent of the Infinite Spur on Mt. Foraker in 13 days in 1989 with McHale Super Sarcs. Over 20 years later people are still choosing S-Sarcs when they want the ULTIMATE in reliability and performance. Dan McHale photos. Click images.
