Low-profile silhouette and ingenious organization.
With the same unique 270° zipper access as the Beartooth, the SAWTOOTH 45’s low-profile silhouette and ingenious organization hits the mark for backcountry hunters. Built on our Guide Light MT Frame™ utilizing burly yet lightweight fabrications, it incorporates the patented OVERLOAD® feature with the a newly designed, quick-attach frame capture for easier access to the shelf for packing out your harvest. It’s roomy enough for a fast and light overnighter as well as being perfectly suited for dawn ‘til dusk hunts where coming out by headlamp is the norm.
The new GUIDE LIGHT MT FRAME™ (Mystery Tech) continues the load carriage tradition of the tried- and-true GUIDE LIGHT FRAME™ and its rigid yet dynamic frame system, but with a few discrete changes. Utilizing custom-developed SJ Autolock buckles throughout, this new hardware collection provides the perfect blend of strength and weight. The 500D Light Plus fabric delivers high tensile and tear resistance, key characteristics for a robust, purpose-driven hunting frame.
OVERLOAD® feature provides functional expandability via a load sling between the pack and the frame, allowing you to put the bulk of the weight closest to your back for optimal comfort.
The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame. The five-point waist belt incorporates the highly functional Redirect system and delivers solid weight distribution and eliminates slippage over your hips, regardless of the load.

The key to a comfortable pack load is the properly fitting backpack. We've designed a more custom fit into our packs with simple sizing based off two measurements. To find the appropriate size waist and yoke for your pack, collect the following two measurements, then reference the sizing chart below.
Measure around your waist just above the top of your hip bones (roughly two fingers below your belly button).
Use a tailors tape measure or string and have a friend measure between the bony bump at the base of your neck (C7 vertebra) to the spot on your spine that is just behind your belly button.
