The AX45 is the literally the old 2nd generation AK47 cut from a different cloth. Instead of the AK's famous Kevlar fabric, the AX45 has a lighter Cordura fabric with a 3 mm Dyneema ripstop developed exclusively to our specification. Elsewhere, we switched the full frame to twin tubular stays and downsized all the webbing (which adds a surprising amount of weight to a rucksack).
Although the carrying harness is identical to that of the AK sacks, the AX45 has a new feature – the hip belt can be fully removed, leaving just the webbing to fasten around your waist.
The AX45 comes in a two back lengths – regular (for those up to around 5’11” or 180 cm) and long.
|Fabric||15% Dyneema / 85 % Cordura, 150 g/m²|
|Frame||Two 7.00 mm tubular titanium stays (removable)|
