Non CM Panel-Dome w/Guide Harness, Q-Bayo Bayonet Panel-Dome with P&G, and Top Loading Panel loader P&G (end of Scroll)


The 'un' top loader, our panel loading Frame Domes make access easy. Climbers don't use panel loaders because of zipper vulnerability but for general hiking they are so handy. We build them with our CM frame system, Non-CM, and Guide Harness Frame system and new for Fall 2007 we build them with a 'P&G Bayonet' system, as well as our 'Q' Bayonet system. Now, even if you are very tall and your McHale Panel loader's frame is 26" long it can shrink down to to a nice and easy 22" or less carry-on size. This is One Trick Pack. The frame can actually be 4 different lengths in one frame. Non-CM models only

All zippers have self locking slides for security. The main zipper is a #10 YKK. The new bayonet panel packs also utilize the vertical and removable 'Roll Top Strap' for added load and zipper security as an option.

Weight: 4lbs., 4 oz. with 420 fabrics.

Even though this pack was made for a tall man and has 26" twin 3/4" stays, large hip belt, a 1000D Cordura bottom and 420 pack cloth upper, internal organizing pockets on the inside of the main panel it comes in at only 4lbs, 4 oz. For a regular size person this pack would easily wiegh under 4 lbs.

The rear pocket size is custom and the client added the daisy chains for snow shoeing.
