The S.H.A.D.O. 28L-LF is a US made, apex, full size, day pack that effectively delivers a ruggedized, streamlined, best in class package designed to perform in a multitude of environments and use cases, both off and on the grid. The unique dual clamshell design allows for full storage access to two compartments, and a high degree of user options to organize EDC items. "LF" designates some design considerations that were originally applied to this overall design to accommodate our "FORCE" users in the Law Enforcement and Military communities.

Designed and built from the ground up in California, USA, this day pack has the objective of functioning as an extension of its user in their every day carry needs, to any number of adventures and tasks in the field and backcountry. The pack name itself is an acronym based on the primary, top level design criteria it was built under. S.uspension, H.aul, A.ccess, D.urability, O.rganized.

With an inherent purpose-driven design this pack represents a lifelong, yet constantly evolving core design ethos and aesthetic seen throughout all of our PDW products. The DNA of S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L is born from the classic design and engineering lineage of the core outdoor and alpine sports tradition. Fused with modern capability, ergonomics, practical usability, and ruggedized materials this day pack delivers intelligent and carefully considered versatile performance for today’s discerning user. The choice of performance materials in making the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L gives the user an adventure pack that is robust yet won't weigh you down.

Our flagship day pack is equally at home with both the dedicated recreational user and the professional one. The S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L is designed and built for those whose have chosen to live a life less ordinary and require a class of products that speaks to that calling. From the spontaneous wilderness overnighter, an urban weekend of food trucking in a new city, exploring ancient ruins in a distant land, skinning up and carving down a hidden backcountry bowl, to confidently carrying your EDC essentials to and from work or the range. This day pack will be an extension of you and is as adventurous and versatile as you want to be. Versatile and modular pack accessories are available for you to customize your pack to suit your needs. Available Coyote Brown with Signal Orange Liners.
