Seek Outside Divide

Seek Outside Divide is designed for the ultralight backpacker and backcountry adventurer who needs both light weight and comfort under serious loads, the Divide bridges the gap between traditional ultralight backpacking and load hauling external frames.

Other 2.5 pound packs do well with 20 – 25 pounds, and struggle above.  The Divide thrives with 30-50 pound loads and is capable over 100 pounds.

With a proven feature set tailored for lightweight backpackers, packrafters, and backcountry skiers, the Divide also delivers on ultralight backpack hunting trips where weight is of utmost importance.

Please note that hip belt is sold separately.

Handmade in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.

Seek Outside Backpacks all feature

  • Seek Outside Suspension – all our backpacks use the same frame, hipbelt, & shoulder harness (save money by adding packbags down the road instead of buying a whole backpack).
  • Patent Pending Articulating Frame.  Our suspension will comfortably carry anything you can.
  • Adjustable Frame Height – 24″ -26″ – 28″ – Frame Extensions allow you to dial your pack height to your torso length or expected load weight.

Frame Size

The frame is 24″ on delivery, but it can be adjusted with a frame extension to 26″ (2″ extension) or 28″ (4″ extension). Frame extensions are used if you are going to carry a lot of weight, but also if you have a longer upper body. See table below for information if you need to add extensions to your order.

For more information on how to measure your torso length, see Seek Outside’s article “Which Frame Height is Right for me?“.

Example: If you have a torso length of 45 cm and plan to carry 15 kilos in the backpack, you should extend the frame with 2″ extensions so you get a frame of 26”.

Torso length Carrying weight up to 13 kg Carrying weight 13-23 kg Carrying weight above 23 kg
15″-16″ (38-41 cm) 24″ 24″ 24″ eller 26″ (add 2″ extensions)
17″-19″ (42-48 cm) 24″ or 26″ (add 2″ extensions) 26″ (add 2″ extensions) 26″ eller 28″ (add 2″ and/or 4″ extensions)
