The goal was to create the lightest, strongest Terminus 8700 cubic inch alpine hunting backpack for the sheep and goat hunter. The result is the new Terminus 8700, weighing in at 4 lbs. 4 oz. By sewing the bag directly to the frame and incorporating an internal load cell, SG built this alpine workhorse to get your gear into high country. Using proven SG frame geometry and load capability, we built this pack with plenty of room to get that gear—and meat—back out.
To minimize excess leverage and maximize load placement, the 2200 cubic inch internal load cell positions the meat next to the frame and closest to your center of gravity. This design leaves 6500 cubic inches of usable space to load your gear for the pack out. Two drain holes in the bottom of the main bag prevent blood from pooling inside the load cell.
A cutting-edge Stone Glacier ULTRA fabric blend is used for the main bag. This innovative fabric was created in collaboration with Challenge Sailcloth and features ultra high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) – a fiber that is 15x stronger than steel per unit of weight – blended with high-tenacity polyester. The fabric is then laminated with a waterproof film for protection from the elements. The result is a material that offers exceptional abrasion and tear resistance while remaining ultralight – ideal for alpine hunting where every ounce counts. X-Pac® is used for the frame and suspension. Both X-Pac® and SG/Challenge Sailcloth ULTRA are waterproof fabrics, though pack seams are not sealed.
SG designed the internal load cell to carry the boned-out meat of medium-sized game. For those who prefer to carry out meat bone-in or wish to change to different bags on a frame, the SG Krux and Xcurve might be better options.FEATURES & SPECS:
