Prometheus Design Werx


This pack represents a lifelong, yet constantly evolving core design ethos and aesthetic seen throughout all of our PDW products. The DNA of the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 24L can be traced to the classic design and engineering lineage of the core outdoor and alpine sports tradition.

Built For Every Environment

This day pack has the objective of functioning as an extension of its user in their everyday 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.

Premium Materials

S.H.A.D.O Pack is built with 500 D Invista Cordura as well as 500 D nylon and spandex. This gives the bag a soft, durable, and flexible design to allow for multi-purpose activities. The choice of performance materials in making the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 24L gives the user an adventure pack that is robust yet won't weigh you down.

Versatile Performance

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. 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.


The pack is equipped with a dual pouch design. The first pouch opens as a clamshell with a breathable mesh and a padded laptop compartment. The secondary pouch has an elastic compartment designed for a water bladder that can be connected externally through the top routing port.

Modular in

Built with extensible features, each pack comes complete with Gear Trap™, EDCO Panel™ with removable Admin Panel, 3-Stage ToF Belt™, and Multi-Purpose Frame Sheet. All components that can be added or subtracted depending on your adventure needs.

Great pack

This is an excellent day or EDC pack. Very comfortable and well laid out. I’ve carried it comfortably with up to 30 lbs without even using the hip belt. One thing to be aware of is that it’s pretty 2-dimensional. It doesn’t easily carry anything that isn’t pretty flat because of the 2 separate compartments. I think the separate laptop compartment is generally worth it but I was surprised how flat it is. I’d love to see a compatible smaller pack that could be attached to this (maybe under the beaver tail) and also as a stand alone hip pack on the belt.
