Explorer Pack by Cooke Custom Sewing (CCS)
The Explorer pack is an excellent pack for solo tripping. The Hybrid series takes the utility of a traditional canoeing pack and then incorporates all the best comfort features of a backpacking style pack including: a padded foam back, contoured shoulder straps with a sternum strap, a padded hip belt, and load lifters on the shoulder straps and hip belt to snug the load close to your body. Extra grab loops make it easy to lift in and out of a canoe. Short torso models are also available. Will fit into most solo canoes.
