S.H.A.D.O. Gear Trap™


The Gear Trap™ is an alpine pack type beaver tail that stows bulkier loads on the outside of the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L. This accessory features a MOLLE compatible, laser cut loop sheet for expanded mounting options to fit other pouches, admin organizers, and even extra morale patches. A zippered pocket on the reverse stows many of today's tablets for quick access.

The beaver tail type storage panel has been a staple found in many alpine and mountaineering packs. Our Gear Trap™ takes this concept and expands the versatility and capability of this system. Well suited to stash a bulky jacket, bump helmet, snow shovel, rope, or even a skate board. The MOLLE compatible sheet accepts light to medium duty pouches, and is a precise laser cut loop grid laminated to an oxford substrate for extra strength while staying at a reasonable weight to durability ratio. 3/4" webbing with SR buckles attach this accessory seamlessly to the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L and also function as compression straps. When attached to the pack the lower web straps act as additional cinching points for items such as a sleeping pad or bivy for those grab and go overnighters. A handy zipper pocket on the reverse of the MOLLE loop sheet allows quick and easy access for many of today's tablets, other hand held devices, and topo maps. Available in Wolf Gray, OD Green, and Coyote Brown.
