GGG Caving Packs

GGG pack designs are a byproduct of our having done lots of caving with other packs and being disappointed by their performance. GGG packs are made from either 18 oz. PVC-coated polyester or double thick Cordura (11 oz. lined with PVC-coated 8 oz. pack cloth). They come in two basic styles: side loading or top loading. The top loading packs close much like a river bag does: the two sides Velcro together, the top rolls down, and the ends clip together with a side release buckle. The side loading packs have a zipper that runs two whole length of the pack to allow complete access to the contents of the pack. The zipper is a #10 tooth-in-box zipper (the kind that closes wetsuits) that is protected by a flap of web. The medium and large packs have compression straps so that you'll never have a case of "limp pack syndrome." All our packs have very large drain holes so there's no waiting around for the water to empty out.

Sideloading pack

PVC or Cordura? PVC cloth comes in red, yellow or black. It will not absorb any water and it's very easy to clean up since the mud just falls off when it dries. Cordura is supple but very rugged. It's available in red, blue, tan, or black. Other colors available upon request.
