A "Gearskin"
is a harness/compression system that acts like a pack.

It is a piece of material that is roughly the size of a ground pad, with compression straps, and harness (shoulder pads, hip belt) attached.

By leaving your ground pad and sleeping bag inside of your shelter...
these can be folded and the gearskin clipped around, with food and other items placed inside the fold.


It has the ability to carry all of your present gear as you would use normally , but with the advantage of the

"powerpac system".

Weighs 1 to 1.5 lb.

Adjusts from 2500-6500 cu. in.

Custom fit shoulder straps and waist belt.

Made from siliconized rip stop or packcloth...your choice.

Other options available.

Here's how it works:

Step 1
Lay the Gearskin open as shown

Gray Jay Testimonial

 

 

 

Here are the photos from my trip to the Catskills.

The photos were taken
while bushwhacking down the Neversink River below Slide Mountain.

 

The "Gearskin"carried great with about 28 lbs. of gear, food & water. I used my Bibler tent on this trip and caught a couple of snags while whacking through the pine trees in search of the source of the river. I repaired the holes easily enough, but think I will use a pack cover in the future when planning to leave the trail.

The load carried very well, even when down climbing rock on my way down the East side of Slide Mountain. I figure I could go as heavy as 35 lbs. if need be, and it would still carry like it was part of me.

I will continue my "Torture Testing" of the "gearskin" until I destroy it, which will probably take quite a while.

Light weight, innovative design, low cost, custom fit, and incredible workmanship ... what more could a person ask for?
