New backpack from Arc´teryx launch the market. The Khard Pack
Named after a high mountain pass in the Himalayas, Arc’teryx LEAF draws on its alpine roots of efficient high performance equipment with the distinctive Khard Pack.
A streamlined communications specialist, medic or breacher’s bag, the Khard is a fully padded single compartment pack. Full U-zip closure opens from the top, side or unzips completely to reveal interior composite panels lined with Velcro loops and daisy chains that allow versatile pouch/radio configurations or camera equipment storage.
Available in 30L and 45L sizes, the Khard design includes side pockets with hydration ports that have the capacity to carry 3L of bottled water, in addition to an extended top lid compartment for extra volume items accessible during direct action.
Radically light in weight C2 composite construction suspension system holds load tight and close to the body, avoiding shifts in weight to conserve energy. Velcro One-Wrap cable/hose management system keeps bag streamlined.
Clean form, minimalist technical construction and details are applied with intelligence to the bag’s field applications as an assault pack. Support stays are removable and can be shaped for custom fitting over gear. Available in solid colour premium quality low reflective air-textured 500D Cordura or MultiCam 500D Cordura 6,6 balanced weave textiles that are hard wearing and weatherproof.
Providing a gateway to transfer an Arc’teryx heritage of alpinism, the Khard Pack simplifies storage, protects equipment and introduces a low profile, comfortable weight carry suspension into the field.
