    So. We got a new family member here since some time back, so it looks like the longer hiking trips will wait for a wile.


    Base weight 4950 gr.

    With that in mind I feel that I can’t justify having my waredrobe full with gear that’s not getting used. So let’s sell some stuff:

    First up is my

    Zpacks Arc Blast 45L Custom


    Backpack in action, compressing side straps can be seen.

    I bought this pack just before Zpacks stopped making custom stuff. And I kind of understand them looking at the length of the mail conversation from my order.

    It’s a green Cuben fiber pack with Dyneema for straps, and load bearing belt.



    It also has V-style webbing on the belt. And mesh on the inside of the straps and belt. As is standard on the Arc Blast now.

    The roll top is made to clip down on the sides to compress the pack better. And it has a key pocket on the inside.

    I have also made some small modifications myself. The main one is that I added a Dyneema flap with buckle on top of the center pocket. I also switched the side cord for yellow.

    The sternum strap is also switched for a wider strap with a whistle buckle. The attachments for this one is not perfect but have worked good so far.

    I’m selling it complete with two Zpacks belt pockets and two KS ultralight shoulder pockets.
    One zipped with mesh on the front and one bottle pocket.

    The Zpacks shoulder pocket seen on the pictures is NOT included!


    KS Shoulder pockets

    Weight for the pack without extra pockets is 640 gr.

    The condition is very good. There are some small holes in the center pocket net, but that is about it.


    Hole in the center pocket.

    I’m looking for 245€ plus shipping for the pack.

    @JonB As a parent who has seen all the stages you are about to go thru' - don't sell your gear in a hurry.
    Especially if it's custom built and not available again in the future.
    You will want time out sometimes, and all too soon you'll be taking the kids out with you.

    Totally agree with @cathyjc. You will be sorry pretty soon, especially if you are happy with the gear that you have got. There will always be possibilities for shorter or longer trips, even if it doesn't seem possible at the moment! Enjoy the time with your son!

    I appreciate your concern. But the plan is to later buy new gear that fits better for the situation. :)

    Is that green softshell a montbell? Always been on the hunt for this shade of green (geeky I know...)

    I guess they compensate for the missing handrails on the bridges further up the river
