The Initial Ascent Pack System

Made for the backcountry hunter who expects more and never settles.

What other hunters are saying

“Big thanks to Initial Ascent for coming out with such a groundbreaking, essential item for female hunters! I can't tell you what a difference it makes on a packout!"

Kate Small

“By far the best pack I’ve owned. And... I’ve owned a few.”

Troy Huggard

“The term coming out heavy was very real. Hind quarter and the full head. 4 miles, all uphill. I loved my Initial Ascent pack from prior experiences, but am amazed at how it handled the weight. I was definitely over 100lbs on this trip and had zero hot spots the next day. I was stunned, other than usual soreness from the miles and weight, I surprisingly felt great the next day. Buy gear you believe in.”
Chris Young

“This is by far the best pack I have used! It fits my small frame perfectly!”

“..the customer service I have received from my initial inquiry on the pack, to the actual purchase and the sizing service, to checking on me after my purchase, has been amazing."

Josh Jenni

“No pack in the world can do what this pack is capable of. I'm blown away.”

“The pack worked flawlessly and allowed me to carry out a moose in six trips.”
