WUULF Pack 24L - Universal Field Gray
The W.ilderness U.tility U.rban L.ay F.lat design is a modern interpretation of the classic, alpine style, top-loading summit assault pack.
Designed and built for use in the wilderness and backcountry, with features for urban use as well. This pack’s numerous considerations make it a versatile, modern-day tripper for today's backcountry, trails, a bike run to the grocery store, or a day at the office.
The W.U.U.L.F. Pack is built with 500D Cordura, a material that has proven to be a great balance of life-long durability and lesser weight. The W.U.U.L.F. pack was constructed to handle the rigor of the day in and day out use in multiple environments.
The W.U.U.L.F. Pack 24L, like our S.H.A.D.O. Pack 24L, represents a lifelong, yet constantly evolving core design ethos and aesthetic seen throughout all of our PDW products. The DNA of the W.U.U.L.F. Pack 24L can be traced to the classic design and engineering lineage of the core outdoor and alpine sports tradition. Versatile and modular pack accessories are available for you to customize your pack to suit your needs, for your one day 12 miler, a trip to the local crags, snowshoeing, to an evening of food truck crawling, or a day's worth of work stuff.
To address the less durable stretch fabrics used for most packs' water bottle pockets, we introduced a new double-gusseted design using the 500D and adjustable shock cord. And should the cord elastic ever blow out, it is user replaceable.
We chose to use alloy tension hooks for the top lid closure and compression straps at the request of several climbers we know. The rationale was that the main point buckles wouldn't be vulnerable to cracking, like the nylon or acetal type, if stepped on with rock underfoot when the pack was on the ground.
Wilderness Utility Urban Lay Flat
The W.U.U.L.F. Pack 24L gets its name from it’s unique feature of a center front 2-way zipper. This style zipper opening allows a secondary B.E. access/entry point into the main compartment with the top lid closed, and when the top lid is opened and laid flat on any suitable surface, can be fully zipped opened to allow access to nearly 90% of the main compartment.
Characterized by classic looks and possesses numerous modern considerations inside and out.
This is my first backpack of it type where it opens similarly as a Mystery ranch backpack. For its price is fantastic and is packed with features and the high vis orange is very helpful. The only suggestion I would make is to add a beaver tail in next gen, ,similar to the SHADO, and it would make this pack more better than it is. Also a laptop sleeve is an odd choice for a pack if this class, maybe put an EDCO panel instead? Anyhow get this pack you won’t regret it!
So I am impressed, especially for the price. However there is a few issues, my biggest issue is the lid (brain) when the pack is under filled the lid flops down and exposes the snow hood. If it’s snowing or raining the moisture will easily get into the back. If the brain was able to be cinched further down the back or if there was a secondary cinch that went across the snow hood then this would be resolved. Also the way the hip belt attaches to the pack isn’t great, I saw this same way on the SHADO and seen that it was upgraded recently, I with the WUULF had that same upgrade. Good pack, great value, I hope there is a V2 in the future.
Can’t give this an honest review yet because I haven’t taken it out. However fit and finish are superb
