Chilcotin 12 Backpack
Day outings in the backcountry require carrying food, water, clothing, and other key items for a successful day. The Chilcotin series is all about load stability and easy access to your kit. The packs wrap around the body, keeping the mass close and stable. Shoulder straps and back panels are ventilated to help with comfort in warm weather.
A versatile hydration pack for multiple pursuits. At 12L (793 in2), it is sized perfectly for daylong hikes and bike rides. Hydration is built in with a 2L custom SOURCE bladder, and the secure wraparound fit minimizes sway and better disperses the load. The mesh back panel and Aeroform™ shoulder strap materials provide superior ventilation, and Wingman™ hip pockets keep small essentials easily accessible.
HYDRATION TO GO
Arc'teryx selected SOURCE™ hydration bladders because they deliver exceptional flow rates, effective capacity, minimal slosh and ease of use. The ergonomic, high flow bite valve delivers water with little effort, an important factor on the move. The valve can be locked closed while not in use to eliminate leakage and dribbling. The BPA free bladder has a maintenance free liner that helps prevent microbial build up without adding a plastic taste. The leakproof wide mouth top makes filling, cleaning and drying exceptionally easy.
STABILITY IN MOTION
The Chilcotin packs are built for motion. They wrap around the body, keeping the mass close and stable, particularly important when balance is critical. This wraparound design also distributes the load more evenly, reducing pressure points and discomfort on long day treks. A polyethylene frame sheet helps maintain pack stability and protects the back from load protrusions.

In the shoulder straps, the lightweight, non-absorbent Aeroform™ monofilament mesh exterior promotes air flow and a Spacermesh™ HD interior provides next to skin comfort. In the back panel, Aeroform™ combines with a reticulated open cell foam for air circulation and comfort.
