We set out to make the perfect hip-pack

We’ve honed in on the original design and believe the Summit Bum™ series is the most versatile fanny/chest pack around.
The series is at the apex of function, weight, and durability.

We’ve been making the Summit Bum™ series for over 2 years now and the design has been improved along the way.
What we have learned during this process is that, as with backpacks, there is some variety in what hikers needed.

So, we expanded on our design selection!

And those aren’t all!
We have a few other options in the shop as well!

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

If you plan to carry something 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 few packs, you can get in touch with us on the form below 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.”
