Product Details

An ultralight 3-in-1 packrafting bow bag that seamlessly integrates with your expedition backpack for additional storage, while tripling up as a bow bag on your boat and a minimalist daypack for quick side missions on the river.

Designed to fit seamlessly on any pack with side compression straps and buckles. The side compression straps slide through the bow bag daisy chain for a clean and simple connection.

The bag is not waterproof - it has a mesh bottom that drains water instantly, while saving a bunch of weight and money over fully sealed options.

From a functional perspective, things like water, sunscreen, and hand pump I keep in the bow bag, and it doesn't matter if they are waterproofed or not. A small lightweight dry bag takes care of the rest, and still saves a chunk of weight. It's easy to keep wet stuff wet and dry stuff dry.

The other advantage of a pass-through bag (learned from technical canyoneering with Imlay Canyon Gear) is the outside bag will take all the damage, and you don't have to worry as much about abrasion ruining the waterproof barrier.


Made to order in Ultragrid 200d UHMWPE gridstop with a 3.5oz/yd mesh for a savings of 1.3 ounces over an Ecopak build.

#5 YKK Vislon Zipper. The Vislon molded tooth zipper outperforms typical coil zippers in wet and muddy environments.

Modular configurations. Seamlessly integrates with any expedition backpack with side compression straps with buckles. Can also be worn as a day pack with the optional minimalist backpack straps (adds 1.2 oz).

Perimeter daisy chain allows for near-universal fit with many different boats. Daisy chain also allows for additional items to be attached to the outside of the bag.

Attachment to the boat is by four 1/2 inch webbing straps that are girth hitched onto the boat and then looped through the daisy chain and tensioned. Small profile minimizes entanglement hazards.

Paddle Pocket: Optional mesh pocket that allows the bow bag to hold 4 piece paddles securely between the bow bag and the main pack body. Adds .7 oz
