When one of our favorite new pieces of cool, functional adventure gear goes on sale, we’ve just got to to share the news with you. Right now, you can get the trailblazing Paxis Twin Lakes backpack on sale for $60 off at Touch of Modern.
Since its debut at the Outdoor Retailer show in 2015, the Paxis has sent shockwaves throughout the portage industry. Originally designed to give fishermen in the Pacific Northwest quick access to tackle, the innovative Paxis Twin Lakes sports a fanny pack-sized pod on a hinged swingarm that sits below the backpack itself. With a pull of a release lever, the fanny pod arcs around to the wearer’s front side at belt level, providing super-quick top-zip access to essential gear without removing the backpack. It’s ingenious, really.
But something this innovative can’t stay a secret for long, and Paxis is now a favorite among photographers, birdwatchers, hikers, and anyone else who carries gear into the great outdoors. On-the-go parents particularly love the quick access to bottles, snacks, and wipes. There’s even a version designed for wheelchair adventurers.
Born in the rugged Pacific Northwest, Paxis was founded by outdoor enthusiasts who understand the need for quick access to their gear without the hassle of removing your pack. And right now, you can get Paxis’ top-of-the-line Twin Lakes adventure kit for just $304. With this amazing deal, you’ll get the Twin Lakes Pack, a RainShield to protect it from the elements, and Pod Armor, to help organize and divide it for maximum ergonomic storage.
When you’re out exploring or waiting for the perfect photo op, access is key. With the Paxis Twin Lakes, you don’t have to stop what you’re doing to get what you need. Keep your straps on, use one hand to pull the T-handle on the right hand shoulder strap, and your essentials are right in front of you. To lock the pod back into position, swing the pod to the back, gently pull it toward you with both hands, and the fanny pod clicks back into place. it’s a total gamechanger.
Pod Armor lets you divide your pod exactly the way you need it. It’s made with high density aviation foam covered in soft velour fabric for maximum gear protection. And the nylon RainShield will keep the whole rig dry.
