Arc’teryx LEAF Drypack 70 Video Is Now Live

A video detailing the Arc’teryx LEAF Drypack 70 has just been released.

DryPack-70-Multicam

Constructed from HT 725D Cordura nylon with polyurethane coating on both sides, the Drypack 70 is a 100% waterproof load carriage pack appropriate for maritime special operations. It features a C² suspension system with a laminate back panel, GridLock shoulder straps that adjust to custom width and height, and removable Load Transfer Disc that rotates freely to stabilize load on uneven terrain. The full alpine backpack carrying system, completely removable, greatly aids the user’s land mobility.

The RollTop closure and TIZIP master seal zipper provides a waterproof seal, and an oral inflation valve controls buoyancy. Top and bottom grab handles and a removable 1m tether makes the bag easy to manipulate and allows for towing, hauling, or carrying options.

Web Dominator webbing management keeps the Drypack streamlined. Two removable side compression enhances load management. The interior features white lining for aid in viewing contents during low light conditions.

Currently available in MultiCam.

    This is amazing.

    It will hold a complete squadrons’ load out of Cloak LT’s!

    As Jungle Recon says, “This thing is as bad ass as my mustache!”.

    Most interesting, thanks. A question, I wonder if anyone at Arc’teryx, or otherwise, could answear this:

    The fabric of this pack is on both sides PU-coated Cordura. I find this a bit strange, as PU coatings on packs (usually just inside) tend to wear-off with time and abrasion. While this isn’t a big problem with normal packs, it would be with an immersion waterproof drypack, as it could cause leakage.

    * Why not use a trilaminate instead? As is common in drysuits. With Cordura face(s).

    The shoulder straps have pull-cord releasable SR buckles for quick release.

    * Are these strong enough? Why not use the usual ‘molle’ QR buckles instead?

    And a couple of comments:

    * Note how badly Multicam works against the water backdrop in the video.
    * To me the tether seems too short for swim-towing the pack. The tether needs to be long enough to keep the pack well away from the flippers.
    * I think a large-volume drybag designed to fit an established load carrier frame, like Duplex by Kifaru or Nice by Mystery Ranch, could be a good idea.

      Another vote for this. Would love to see a large, rugged dry bag – without any shoulder straps or waist belt – that I can mount on my Duplex Frame.
