Super SARC P & G: Spectra X Grid, 500 Cordura, 500 Codura/Spectra Grid (scroll down) $895.00 Base Price


Circumference profile: 42" / 42" / 42" with approximately a 34" tall bag standard with no extension.

Breaking it down: If a $895.00 base price S-Sarc P&G seems pricey, keep in mind you do not have to buy the entire system. Minus the upper Bayonet Frame extension and top pocket the price is $725.00 and could be considered complete in itself. This is a roll-top pack with twin 7075-T6 stays that are adjustable in length, rear kangaroo pocket, a super comfortable hip-belt and back pad, and a Full Spectra rim and bottom that can take almost any abuse you can throw at it. You will be impressed at how the pack can handle 35 - 40 lbs in this simple mode without the P&G frame extension. It will out carry anything in its class.

With all the new fabrics hitting the market, add-on prices for UHMWPE is in flux. We tend to dye these fabrics and that adds dollars, but the prices are now much lower than during our 'Spectra laminated to DCF' days. DCF is 'CubenFiber' or Non-Woven Dyneema. Base price includes all regular fabrics and Spectra 'Grid' fabrics.

Top Load / Panel Loader style LBPs; Add $95.00 to base price for zipper.

S-Sarcs have been in production since the mid-80s and are well tested and established work horses.
