The Scorpion Pack isn’t just your average hip sack; it’s a beast of a bag that combines comfort with versatile carry options. Its removable waist belt, which stabilizes the 4.5L pack, features 2 rows of M.O.L.L.E. for attaching extra pouches or water bottle holders. When you need a change, simply detach the waist belt and deploy the hidden clips to convert it into a shoulder bag using the included strap. The top handle, built with sturdy three-layer webbing, lets you grab and go with ease.

On the pack’s lid, you’ll find a zippered pouch perfect for stashing smaller items, while the stretch pockets on each side are ideal for small water bottles or other essentials. The bottom compartment houses a load compressor, allowing you to secure bulky items like extra layers on the exterior.

Open the Horseshoe Zipper a Little or A Lot Depending on Your Needs

The main compartment features a horseshoe zippered opening, providing top-only or full-access to the inside. Inside, two mesh pockets keep your gear organized and visible, and a Velcro® loop field along the back lets you attach additional pouches and accessories. The front of the pack also boasts a double row of MOLLE for even more storage options.

A Bulky Item Attachment in the Bottom Allows for Exterior Storage Options

The Scorpion Pack is a full-service bag, designed to offer multiple carry and organization solutions for the gear junkie on the go.
