Pitched by Greg McEvilly, founder of Kammok:
We're unveiling Kammok's first lineup of full-featured adventure packs and bags designed to go wherever you roam. We’ve been wanting to design a pack line for years, and I’m proud to say that the wait has been worth it. The Burro Pack line was designed first and foremost for all the ways we spend time outside: at the park, at the crag, or at a train station in Europe—the Burro packs provide incredible all-conditions versatility.
The new pack lineup includes the Burro Zip 18, Burro Roll 26, Burro Duffel 30, and the Burro Hip Pack—an ultralight hip pack or carrying case for the larger Burro 26 and 18 backpacks. All the Burro Packs are equipped with Kammok’s custom Adamas fabric, a lightweight but rugged 70D ripstop nylon with laminate core and PU coating that allows for waterproof seam sealing and a 12,000 mm waterproof rating.
The Burro Zip 18 and Burro Roll 26 backpacks, also have a modular padded back pad that provides structure and support while carrying a load, and doubles as a protective laptop sleeve or removable waterproof camp seat. The packs also feature intelligent placement of exterior stretch pockets, internal organization, watertight zippers, and cushioned 3D Diamond mesh shoulder straps and back panel for all day carrying comfort.
The Burro Duffel 30 is a roomy waterproof duffle bag that rolls with the punches and stows away when you don’t need it. Carry it with your hand, slung over a shoulder, or on your back, the Burro Duffel 30 comes with customizable straps depending on what the situation demands. Unstructured for packability, the duffel features a removable back pad that adds comfort for the long haul, a dry seat for any surface, and protection for your laptop.
