Dragon 20

Share Review this product

Redefining pack design, the Dragon 20 has been created to meet the needs of mountain ‘fast packing’ endurance enthusiasts. The MONTANE® Freelight Chassis is a revolution in load carrying comfort, allowing the user to achieve a completely even weight balance through a stretch form-fitting body harness. The Dragon 20 pack itself is constructed from super light RAPTOR Hydroseal fabric and is fully taped to provide the highest possible weather protection. With the capacity to carry two bottles and a water bladder it serves not only as a hydration platform, but is also large enough to provide multi day kit carrying potential.

Dragon on the RogueCustomer Rating

I used the Dragon 20 this weekend for a fastpack of the Rogue River Trail in Oregon (USA). I had not used a vest pack before and was impressed how secure and stable it was for running and fast hiking. It is tough, light, and has well thought out features. The 20 liter capacity was enough for me to easily carry 2 days worth of supplies. I would caution against the use of anything but ultralight gear as the minimal straps will dig into your arms if you carry too much weight. Also, be careful what you put in the front pocket as it sits close to your body and will get wet from sweat. This is a great pack!
