A Design for Every Backpacker

A Design for Every Backpacker


We have honed in the original design and believe the Summit bum™ series is the most versatile fanny/chest pack around.
The series is at the apex of functional, lightweight durability.

We’ve been making the Summit Bum™ series for over two years now and what we have learned is that, as with backpacks, there is some variety in what hikers need.

So, we expanded our selection!

And those aren’t all of them,
we have a few other options in the shop as well!

The major differences in each model are capacity and style of belt-attachment.

If you plan to carry something heavy and dense, like a large camera or other electronic equipment, you will be happier with a style that has an affixed belt.

So, yeah, we have a lot of designs. . .
However, because we make each pack as they are ordered, we can also modify your pack!
We either stock or can easily acquire most types of hardware or fabric you would like.
So, if you would like to modify a standard pack or combine elements from a different packs, contact us and we will be happy to walk you through it!

Skunk Ape’s favorite is still the Summit Bum™ - Classic
”it’s on my hip and in my heart.”
