Description

Meet The Notch, a compact yet robust thru-hiking pack created to be a resilient companion over thousands of miles of hiking.

The Notch is built on the same core design you know and love in The Mo (the same frame style and hipbelt) but with a few key differences...

  • 40 Litres: A refined size ideal for those with modern UL gear.
  • No Load Lifters: Leave that crutch behind; you don't need them on a pack this size.
  • Webbing Side Compression: Super durable.
  • Extended Daisy Chains: Clip on more gear.

Features

4 inch wide Dual adjustable hipbelt. Removable.
Comes with 4 adjusters that tighten by pulling inwards, allowing you to dial in the perfect fit. 

Lumbar pad
Made with 10mm EVA foam and 3mm thick spacer mesh.

Plastic Frame with removable Alloy stay
Removable frame sheet made of 1mm thick plastic with a sewn-in 12mm / ½" alloy bar.

Padded back panel
Uses shaped 8mm closed cell foam. Can be removed when the pack is empty for a 25g weight reduction.

S-shaped shoulder straps
Sewn using our own laminated 10mm foam, durable 210d Robic Extreema face fabric and breathable, soft 3mm spacer mesh.

Dual shoulder pockets
Super stretchy and big enough to hold most smartphones, a day’s worth of snacks or a 700ml water bottle. The elastic is fixed and, owing to its clever design, does not need a tensioner.

Roll top closure 
The closure has 15mm vertical side compression. The roll top can also be clipped together at the top (dry bag style) and the side compression clipped around the front of the bag to aid carrying snowshoes or maybe a huge pack of chips etc.

Side compression webbing
Great for securing the top of large items in your side pockets: tripods, trekking poles etc.

Bottom pocket
Easy-access bottom pocket with trash port made with Dyneema stretch fabric.

Large front pocket
Made with Dyneema stretch fabric. Can hold 5L, not included in the total volume.

Side pockets
Two 2.5L forward-facing, deep and low side pockets made with 210D Robic Extreema. Each one is big enough to keep 2 x 1L Smartwater bottles steady, yet low enough to reach whilst the pack is worn.

Front zig-zag elastic
Removable and designed to be able to store a folded Z-rest or assist with air drying your clothes.

Sternum Strap
Elasticated and height adjustable. Whistle.

Ice Axe loop
Sewn-in loop to easily connect an ice axe or walking poles.
