One of the (very) few drawbacks of the amazing X3-600 pack is that gear on the bottom of the top loader can be hard to access. Well now CAMP has enabled you to go in through the back door. A secret zippered panel has been installed on the back for more direct access to that important stuff you accidentally packed first. And since the designers were already adding a few grams, they went ahead and used a more durable fabric, making the X3 Backdoor a hard-wearing pack for daily touring.
All the other features on the pack are what you’d expect from a CAMP skimo pack. The ski carry system can be used without taking off your pack. Mesh pockets on the sides are great for stashing skins, water bottles, gloves, what have you. The hip belt pocket holds fuel and ice axe loops carry your pick. This could be the new go-to pack for longer tours when you still want to move fast.
