When your gear does more, you can carry less. We designed the Chameleon Backpack to make it easier to get outdoors and make your experience more comfortable and enjoyable. 

We all love the feeling of exhausting ourselves on the trail. We should be rewarded for all that hard work and take a load off. The Chameleon lets you sit back and enjoy the beautiful backcountry anytime, anywhere without having to choose between a rock and a hard place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyond just a backpack to chair transformation, the Chameleon can separate to form 2 backpacks. Each Chameleon includes two 16 liter removable stuff sacks that hold all of your gear inside. They can be carried independently as separate drawstring slings or can connect together to form a 32-liter drawstring backpack so you get two for one.

 

Using the Chameleon’s patent-pending Penta-zip technology, simply unzip, arrange the collapsible Sit-System frame, attach the pack to the frame, then sit back and relax.The removable Switch Bags™ that hold all of your gear will drape over the sides of the chair so you can easily access everything you need.

 

 

                

  

 

 

 

Using our patent-pending technology, you’ll be able to sit back, relax and unwind whenever wherever. 

 

 

The ultra-light, aluminum, collapsible Sit-System frame is rated up to 300 pounds. The anchors and seat flap are permanently fastened and secure. 

No matter where life takes you, the Chameleon will be there to carry your load or help you take a load off, keeping you comfortable and prepared at all times.

 

 With our removable Switch Bags, you won’t have to worry about emptying your pack before taking a load off.

 

 The Switch Bags are accessible from the top by drawstring when housed inside the pack, but we designed them with 2 full-length zippers that zip from top to bottom and bottom to top. This gives you easy access to your stuff from any angle, both as a backpack and when lounging in your chair.

The best part about the Switch Bags? They can be used as individual drawstring slings or combined as a 32-liter drawstring backpack. Think of it as two packs in one. Share the load and free up even more space in the Chameleon pack for more essentials on family or group outings.

 

You need a pack that can withstand whatever you throw at it, which is why we made the Chameleon with heavy duty abrasion and water-resistant denier nylon. The interior Switch Bags provide an added layer of protection from the elements.  

 

 

Each Chameleon has 36 liters worth of storage to hold everything from your weekend camping or hiking gear to your school, work, or leisure supplies. We made sure to include water bladder and laptop storage spaces, along with a side cup holder. To take it a step further, we designed the pack with Molle, used in military and tactical bags, that allow you to attach your desired items and increase the capacity to suit your needs. The lashing buckles make it easy to carry larger items like fishing poles, tents, compound hunting bows or anything you can think of.  

 

 

 

The Chameleon isn’t just for hikers, campers, hunters and fishermen. We designed the Chameleon to be useful for all active people, like athletes, parents, students, park goers, tail-gaiters, backyard barbecuers and everyone in between. The best part is that you won’t have to choose function over fashion with the Chameleon’s jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind design. So go show it off wherever you go!

Risks and challenges

All new trails have unknowns, unforeseen risks and challenges. Through our production process and the delivery of our product to you, we recognize that delays or mistakes can happen, through things like factory closures, human error, or equipment malfunction. As outdoors men we know the importance of preparation. We have vetted multiple companies/ facilities to help with production in case of any hang-ups or issues. We have all the confidence in our team and our operations to be able to overcome any stumbling blocks and deliver a great customer experience.
