Product Description

Rokk Talkeetna


Jumbo Rokk™ Talkeetna Pack is perfect for those trips when the scenery is so beautiful, you may never come back!

Room for everything but the kitchen sink. Wait... that fits, too. At 6,200 cubic inches, the Talkeetna is just plain huge. It has an extra-long spindrift collar so the pack can be used as a bivouac sack. The slab pocket is removable and attaches by side release buckles - it's perfect for stowing snowshoes or a snow shovel and has an alter ego as a day pack and bladder pocket. It has two of everything: two daisy chains, ice axe holders, stretch cord compression systems, mesh pockets for bottles, and a pair of six-slot accessory strap holders. And, of course, a new built-in rain cover.

User Description

The Talkeetna pack is a comfortable very, very flexible pack. You can pack large for long trips or pack small for just a couple of days and have it all work well and stay balanced.

The detachable lid pack is great as a fanny pack. Simply detach, pull out the straps and click and go.

The detachable exterior small pack has shoulder straps and a waist belt strap to use it as a summit pack or a day pack. It also has a slot in it to use it as a water bladder holder.

The Talkeetna's main compartment has access from the top and from the side. The side zipper is a full length zipper that makes getting into the pack quick and easy.

Lastly I like the waist belt because it is big and wide, so it is very comfortable.
