At Exo Mountain Gear we are extremely passionate about backcountry hunting and our goal is to build what we think are the best backcountry mountain hunting packs available. We feel the best designs are not complicated and we design our packs from a lightweight minimalist perspective always keeping simplicity and function in mind. We put just enough pockets on them to keep your gear organized while not adding too much weight. The packs are made right here in Boise, ID USA which allows us to have a very hands on approach to building, testing and developing. Making the packs here in Boise and using the highest quality materials available (like our Titanium frame) requires us to sell direct. In the end the hunter gets a USA made, high quality pack for much less than if it went through normal retail channels.
