The RK50 is our expedition-size roll-top. To manage the extra load-carrying capacity, the RK50 comes with two tubular titanium frame stays as standard, plus a hip-belt whose design is stolen from the venerable AK range. The RK50's side compression system uses a beefy 10mm webbing in combination with a tension lock.
The RK50 will be available in two back lengths: Regular and Long.
Due to have been released in 2016, production has been delayed to early 2017 owing to high demand on the existing AK and RK models.
