For your next weekend hunt, you might want to consider what pack you’re bringing along. ALPS offers a new pack, the Commander X Freighter Frame, which aims to make carrying everything you need as easy as possible, while also featuring a removable waist pack.
Every hunter loves a good challenge. And so does ALPS OutdoorZ. When it was time to design and manufacture the best meat hauler on the market, we didn’t take the challenge lightly. And with all the features the Commander X has to offer, you could say that we’ve hit the bull’s-eye with this pack. Now we challenge you to give it a try.
The Commander X is really two packs in one – the frame hauler and the pack bag that attaches to the frame. Let’s start by introducing the pack bag features.
Because hunters are tough on their gear and have to battle rugged terrain, it’s only fitting to use the highest quality fabrics on the market: 1680D Nylon Ballistic and Robic™.
Using the pack bag allows you to pack in everything you need for camp to have a successful hunt. Your rifle or bow, spotting scope, clothing, calls, food and water, sleeping bag, and all the other gadgets you pack will all have the perfect spot to rest in your pack with the numerous pockets the pack bag boasts.
Being able to keep your gear handy and organized can make the difference between being successful or not. After you make it to base camp you can ditch the pack bag because the top lid doubles as a waist pack, which makes it great for scouting and essentials.
So, now you’ve got your eye on the prize, you’re heart’s racing, and as soon as you pull back, you know you’ve got your trophy and it’s time to figure out how to get the meat back to camp. Now is when you’re praising yourself for choosing the Commander X.
The dual aluminum stays with the channeled high density polyethylene frame and adjustable molded suspension make for an extremely durable and comfortable carrying system. Add in the Lycra® shoulder straps and padded waist belt and you’re fit for success.
For a pack, the key to carrying weight comfortably is to have a strong frame and a rock-solid, adjustable suspension, and that’s exactly what the Commander X has, making it one of the most advanced internal-frame packs in the industry!
The Commander X frame features a shelf, as well as, a compressed wing system so whether you’re load is small or large, you can carry it all. Of course there’s extension lashing straps included, so if the load you’re carrying is bulky, it won’t be a problem hauling it along too. There’s no job too big or too small for the Commander X.
The best part of this premium pack combo? Since the pack bag can attach to the frame via the zippers (if you are not using the frame) or via a series of compression straps(if frame is being utilized), you can still have your pack bag attached even after you load up your frame. With all the top-of-the-line components on the Commander X, it’s safe to say that, if your body can handle it, the Commander X can support it.
