Designed for ultimate accessibility and quick access, our new AZ Vortex Bag System is extremely rugged and able to be carried on the back into the wilderness or in an industrial environment. Made of durable Cordura® nylon, they feature extra protection in high-wear places for exceptional longevity.
The head backpack features end-to-end-zippers for full-length flat opening. One side securely cradles the two head components in custom pockets with protective padding and stows the pin set bag attached by a quick-release strap. The opposite side holds both the 40-foot 8mm tether cord and (3) AZ Hobble Straps and has a molle strip for attaching additional gear.
Padded shoulder and sternum straps can be stowed internally, so that the backpack can be carried gear-bag style with the comfortable side-grip carry handle. The back pad features breathable D3 cloth.
The front panel has an external zipper pocket for the AZ Vortex User’s Manual or other items, and an additional internal pocket for holding pulleys, carabiners and hardware. (AZ Vortex components, pulleys and carabiners sold separately.)
The three leg bags feature hand carry handles and an adjustable padded shoulder sling for easy transport. End-to-end zippers for full-length opening either direction provide easy access, and the oversize bags can carry additional leg components. Two internal padded dividers allow for separated protection of the legs. Compression straps around the girth of the bag cinch tight to keep gear snugly in place.
Each of the two newly designed padded foot sleeves nest inside the leg bags and fasten securely to hold three foot components, either flat or raptor style. This facilitates a quick change of feet, so that carrying both sets is not necessary.
The AZ Vortex Bag System ships with the AZ Vortex or may be purchased as a set to upgrade or replace existing bag sets. Sold as a system.
Sedona Shoulder Harness (sold separately)
A new removable backpack carrying system for AZ Vortex leg bags, the Sedona Shoulder Harness quickly attaches or detaches from the leg bag for extended carries up flights of stairs or in the backcountry. The harness is constructed of high-strength Cordura® nylon with comfortable padded shoulder straps, sternum strap, back panel and waist belt, each lined with breathable cloth. Order one shoulder harness for each leg bag (3) in the set.
