The latest packing innovation designed especially for outdoor adventure lovers has arrived and it’s called the Bootlegger Modular Backpack. Manufactured by the San Francisco-based outdoor gear company Boreas Gear, the Bootlegger brings you the latest modular pack system to meet all your gear needs, regardless of your preferred type of outdoor activity.

The modern shape-shifter which combines modular functionality, patent-pending Super-Tramp Suspension and original design, the Bootlegger allows you to swap the suspension and chose between several different packs depending on your packing needs, target activities or weather conditions. The Triple-Tramp Suspension is the newest modular back panel that lets you swap from pack to pack with a simple tug of a strap to suit your outdoor gear needs best. The system also allows for a better weight distribution as it uses pull-straps to shift the pack’s weight either closer to or farther away from your back, thus ensuring increased stability and greater freedom of movement as you’re enjoying your outdoor adventure.

Together with the Triple-Tramp Suspension, the modular pack also features three interchangeable tops – the Scrimshaw Dry Bag, Hopper Day Pack and the Torpedo Hydration Pack, each of them designed for different purpose and type of activity. For example, if you want to go kayaking, canoeing, snowboarding or simply take a leisurely walk on a really heavy-raining afternoon, you will definitely need a dry-bag. But with Bootlegger, this is not a problem at all – just drop the suspension and turn your modular pack into the fully waterproof and submersible Scrimshaw with roll-top closure, ribcage construction and taped seams. Or, if you are on to commute, climb or hike, simply swap the suspension to the Hopper which features a waterproof top pocket, two full-face stretch-fabric pockets, compression straps and internal laptop pocket to allow you to neatly organize your stuff.

In case of unexpected downpours along the way, you can even drop the Hopper inside the Scrimshaw for ultimate wetness protection. And in case you’re set for a day of running, biking or hiking, switch the pack to the Torpedo which will hold your bare necessities in one ultra-light pack with a zippered top pocket and two-way stretch front panel.

Don’t hesitate to try it out – highly functional, originally designed and extremely versatile, the Bootlegger Modular Backpack may be the last backpack you’ll ever buy.
