This is a modular type of lumbar - day pack. It comes in two camouflage colors. I purchased the Mossy Oak Break Up Infinity. 

 2 Packs in One!

  • Adjustable shoulder harness
  • Both Big Bear and Little Bear models have optional harness pockets that are compatible 
  • Padded waist belt with easy access pocket
  • 2 side, front, and main pockets.
  • Fanny Pack Extends into Large Day Pack
  • Webbing Loops for Lashing on Extra Gear
  • 800 cu in – Fanny Pack Capacity
  • 1900 cu in – Day Pack Capacity
  • 2700 – cu in – Total Capacity
  • Weight: 2 lbs 5 oz
  • Brushed Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity

The fanny pack has a large main compartment, 2 side pockets, and a front pocket, 800 cubic inches gives you plenty of space to organize your gear. The fanny pack has a large extendable day pack that expands out of the fanny pack to give you an additional 1,900 cubic inches of space.

If you're going on a short hike and only need the capacity of the fanny pack, the expandable day pack section can stow away.

I really like the the fact that this pack can be multi-use for my day hikes, overnight hikes, extended days of hiking, and cold weather hikes.
