Stone Glacier Sky Archer 6400
New for 2020, we have redesigned our ever-popular Sky Archer to include an internal spotting scope pocket and a more efficient full-length side-zipper that allows access to the main compartment of the bag without having to remove your bow. Perfect for backcountry bowhunters and late-season rifle hunters alike, the Sky Archer is one of our lightest expedition sized packs.
The Sky Archer 6400 is the perfect pack for ultralight mountain bowhunting, weighing 5 lbs 7oz on a Medium Xcurve Frame. The bag is convertible to a 4,000 cubic inch bivy-mode using a unique top compression strap system with integrated storm flap. Topside seams and storm flap are sewn to create the natural folds for compression of excess fabric and complete weather protection when in Bivy Mode. Designed with the backcountry archer in mind, the Sky Archer boasts a 25” panel style side zip allowing access to the main bag without having to remove your bow while strapped to the pack.
Just inside the panel side zip are ¾” tri-slide buckles to attach Swing Out pockets and/or Camp Pockets for added organization. The center compression straps have added length and dual adjust male and female buckles for increased versatility when attaching a bow. The Sky Archer also has two side pockets, the left pocket on the zipped side of the bag is specifically for a tripod or arrow tube, the larger right side pocket is designed for additional storage. With 6,400 cubic inches of volume and 2,500 plus cubic inches of load shelf expansion, this pack can deliver on everything from trips measured in weeks to those measured in hours.

Stone Glacier XCurve Frame
The Xcurve frame is the next step in the evolution of Stone Glacier for heavy loads. Using 4 carbon fiber/titanium composite stays in an “X” configuration, the Xcurve incorporates curvature to match the lumbar and upper back contours for increased weight distribution and comfort under heavy load. The unique “X” stay configuration increases both vertical frame strength and eliminates any lateral shift, especially for loads over 100 pounds.
The Powerlock hip belt has forward assist pull with locking features to eliminate any webbing slip, even under the heaviest of loads. The tighter the belt is adjusted, the tighter the lock on the webbing. The Powerlock hip belt also has adjustable upper and lower tensioners to cup the hips and equalize pressure for the full width of the belt, regardless of body shape. Dual density foam and improved belt shape all combine for more comfort under heavy loads.
The Xcurve shoulder straps offer increased foam density for comfort, increased vertical torso adjustment for shorter torsos, and increased width adjustment to better match the curvature over the shoulders. The Xcurve is compatible with all past and present SG bags and uses the same load shelf features and function that defines all Stone Glacier packs.
The Xcurve was designed to provide the utmost comfort and stability under the heaviest of loads, a perfect blend of lightweight design and heavy load hauler. Xcurve frame weighs 3.13lbs with Medium Belt.
