Red Fox Odyssey backpacks are for making that long trek to places you’ve never been before. Inevitably that means you need to carry a lot of stuff. Our Odyssey packs give you lots of space to carry everything you need with a suspension system that makes the load easy to bear.
The Odyssey is built around the classic top-loading pack design where the emphasis is on maximizing volume. Thus, the main compartment opens wide, and extends at the top. At the bottom of the main compartment is a partition with a full 20 liters on its own. A #10 YKK zipper gives easy access to this bottom partition from the front of the pack. It can be isolated from the main compartment with a zippered panel, or you can extend the depth of the main by zipping the panel open. If you’re really loading up, webbing loops let you attach an extra bag on the outside, underneath the bottom of the pack.
A detachable lid on top adjusts to let the main compartment expand upward. Plus, the lid transforms into a mid-sized messenger bag or fanny pack for when you get to camp and want a small pack.
Around the periphery there are two chain ladders and loops for strapping on up to four ice axes. Underneath the ladders, a full-length stash sleeve on the front of the pack allows you to have fast access to an extra layer or other items. After you’ve dropped your backpack, side straps compress the pack flat, or when full, let you strap a pair of skis or poles to the side of the pack.
If this all sound like a lot of cargo capacity, you’re right. It is. That’s why the Odyssey is built around a solid suspension system to distribute the load evenly across your back. An aluminum V-shaped skeleton adds structure for carrying big loads. Shoulder pads tie to a bombproof aluminum bracket that slides up or down a metal spine to customize the torso length. The top of the pack has a molded occipital cavity allowing your head to tilt back. Padding on the back leaves open space for venting your back. The padded waist belt has vents, too. Combined with padded shoulder straps this system makes load carrying as comfortable as possible.
