The ultimate 26-liter backpack that offers easy access, organization and carry comfort.

The IBEX-26™ is your ultimate 26-liter multi-role backpack, designed to meet all your everyday carry needs. With its innovative "clamshell" opening, this backpack provides lightning-fast access to your equipment while maintaining a low-profile design, perfect for blending into any environment.

The padded main compartment is easily accessible. Lockable YKK zippers with SPARTAN zipper pulls ensure quick entry to your backpack, letting you stay focused on the task at hand. Inside, there are many organizational options. An internal hydration/laptop sleeve features a loop-faced MOLLE-Air front panel for internal expansion. Multiple loop panels and ToughMesh pockets for organization and storage, keeping your gear secure and easily accessible.


Thoughtful design and organization help your stay prepared for everyday challenges.

The IBEX-26™ offers versatile storage options: A 3D top pocket can hold an organizer pouch. The innovative front shock-cord field with Hypalon "Duck Foot" provides support for lightweight gear (like a jacket). Additionally, the bottom tool loops and attachment webbing offer convenient attachment points for trekking poles, axes, tripods, and can be easily tucked away when not in use.

Two 3D side pockets with Hypalon MOLLE-Air panels for accessory attachment. These pockets are ideal for hydration systems, communication devices, and tools. Each side pocket includes an expandable bottom, two lower slip pockets, and an upper loop attachment field for added organization.


Military-grade durability and ergonomic suspension to comfortably carry your everyday essentials.

The IBEX-26™ boasts an internal frame suspension system, allowing you to carry heavy loads with great comfort. Load-adjusters, EVA foam shoulder straps, an ergonomic frame sheet, breathable mesh back, elastic sternum strap, and a padded waist belt ensure a perfect fit and weight distribution.

For the ideal balance of weight and strength, we use ultra-durable CORDURA nylon with DWR (Durable Water Repellent) for all-weather performance, ensuring your everyday essentials stay dry and protected.

The IBEX™ backpack is designed to meet the demands of your dynamic needs. With its superior functionality, durability, and weather-resistant construction, it will always be ready for your next adventure.
