The Kobuk 42 bag has a total volume capacity of 4200 cubic inches.  It attaches easily to the Kobuk Frame. The bag and integrated, adjustable load shelf are primarily made of 500D Nylon and features a 10" expandable, drawstring top made of lightweight ripstop.  Excluding the expanding top, the bag measures 9" x 14" x 24".   The Kobuk 42 is best suited for 1-2 day trips and can be compressed to a lower profile while not utilizing the full capacity of the bag.

Each side has 4 lash points that can be quickly disconnected or adjusted with auto-locking buckles.  Having 4 lash points per side is critical for ensuring that difficult or awkward loads are secured.  Two 22" waterproof zippers make access to the main bag simple, even with a load.  An additional basement zipper opens to a built in pouch that is great for storing small items that require quick access such as additional straps and hardware.   Dual water bottle pockets are built in, one on each side. Laser cut panels on the back of the bag and nylon webbing loops allow for nearly unlimited lashing combinations and attachment points for customizing the pack to fit your needs for any given situation.  The double layered, 500D load shelf can be deployed and adjusted for carrying extra large loads or for carrying quarters/meat.  This keeps the bulk of the weight near the frame while keeping your gear and the inside of the bag clean.

Inside the bag there are internal loops along each vertical zipper allow for connection of Stash Pouches which can be used for organization.  There is also a hydration sleeve that will accommodate up to a 3L bladder and has an ambidextrous hose port for hose routing to the shoulder harness.

The Kobuk Frame is the foundation of Alaska Guide Creations' Kobuk Backpack Line.  The frame consists of 4 solid carbon rods, custom 3D printed yoke supports (top, middle, and bottom), and is enclosed in 500D Nylon.  The fully adjustable harness and belt is constructed of closed cell, cross linked PE foam for comfort and longevity and is included with each frame.
