After two years of designing and testing, we’re excited to introduce the Gossamer Gear Texas Collection! This pack series is a nod to our headquarters’ home here in Texas. We’re proud to be based in Austin, and are excited to share a pack series that is as tough, diverse, and hardworking as this Lone Star State.
We’re launching the series with two inaugural packs: the Lonestar 30 and the Ranger 35. And, whether or not you have roots here in Texas, we know you’ll love the uniqueness of these Gossamer Gear Texas Collection packs. They’ve already traveled significantly across the deserts of west Texas and all through Big Bend National Park—some pretty gorgeous lands, in our humble opinion.
But, enough gushing about our Texas pride—let’s get to the good stuff and tell you about these new packs!
Gossamer Gear Texas Collection: Lonestar 30
The Lonestar 30 hauls what you need for epic days on rock, trail, and snow. It’s best used for fast, light summit scrambles and alpine climbing pursuits.
The Lonestar’s “slot-canyon-slim” profile lets you swing freely, and keeps you from snagging on crags. The pack includes a large main compartment, and your rope or skins can ride along under the pack’s lid. The Lonestar’s minimalist internal frame and removable hipbelt make for a comfy carry.
In addition, this pack includes: daisy chains for days, ice axe loops, grab-and-get-it stretch mesh side pockets, and trekking pole attachments. This means you can load up easy on the outside, too.
The Lonestar is made with tough, durable Robic fabrics and clocks in at just 29.49 ounces of weight.
Gossamer Gear Texas Collection: Ranger 35
Have plans for a hut-to-hut trek on the Haute Route? The Ranger 35 from the Gossamer Gear Texas Collection is your pack. This pack is best for international travel, hut-to-hut tours, and long day hikes. It’s a pack of all trades that can go from trail to travel with ease—always looking good while doing it!
Don’t be afraid to load up the Ranger. This pack’s removable polycarbonate frame and padded Airflow hipbelt are built for a comfortable carry. And, the Ranger is totally tricked out with an easy-access panel loading design, gear and ice axe loops, our signature stretch-mesh backside stash pocket, and a streamlined design that’s backcountry worthy and overhead bin friendly. Get psyched. Go somewhere. The Ranger is ready to roam.
Made with lightweight, durable Robic nylon, this member of the Gossamer Gear Texas Collection weighs a mere 33.93 ounces.
