Anyone know who makes a backpack with an exo-skeleton support system? I saw a sells rep with one when the outdoor retailer show was in SLC this summer, so I'm not even sure if what I'm looking for is on the market.
The one I tried on had a stiff plastic frame with a 360" ball joint at about mid pack. The cargo hangs off a single point above the joint, allowing your hips to hold all the weight but have 100% freedom of motion away from the cargo.
Anyone know who makes this? It looked very boutique, not sure if it was targeted towards cyclists or day hikers.
