Product Story

Akira Natsume, Yamatomichi Founder

In 2012, I was hiking in New Zealand for over one month and testing the MINI. During that hike, I used the first prototype of the Stuff Pack XL to add some extra capacity to my MINI.

When my MINI was slightly too small but the framed ONE was a little too big, I attached this Stuff Pack to the MINI for additional capacity. (Please note, THREE was not yet released at this time.)

The added capacity was, of course, great, but I also noticed other advantages of the water-resistant and externally-attachable Stuff Pack: I was able to stow my wet tent, tarp, and groundsheet in the Stuff Pack XL after packing everything else under the tent or tarp, allowing me a smooth departure from the campsite without the inside of my MINI being soaked. Also, it was perfect to keep dirty clothes or a wet towel separated from other items after taking a dip in a hot spring.

Initially, the Stuff Pack XL was made solely for our staff, but we had many inquiries from customers who wanted to buy it and I also noticed that there were no products like this in the same category with a 9-liter capacity, that could be easily strapped on the top of a UL lidless backpack so we decided to add this to our regular lineup.

Form and Function

Secure attachment

The Stuff Pack XL is equipped with a 5-loop daisy chain on the side to be strapped on the top, side, or bottom of your backpack for secure and stress-free attachment to your backpack.

The sack is equipped with an internal flap to keep water and dust out.

Packing example

The Stuff Pack XL is perfect for stowing something you want to quickly access, such as food, change of clothes, or rainwear.

When you leave the campsite, you can pack your items under your tent or tarp. Lastly, stow the wet tent or tarp in the external Stuff Pack XL so that the main compartment of the backpack is kept dry.

The external Stuff Pack XL also allows for quick access to a wet tent, tarp, and sleeping bag and it is easy to take them out to dry should the sun come out during your hike.

山と道MINIとの使用例/新穂高~西穂高~ジャンダルム~奥穂高~槍ヶ岳~新穂高(2泊3日)(この部分は英語不要)

一般ルートでは日本最難関とも言われるトレイルでのハイキングで、岩場での体の動かしやすさを重視してバックパックにMINIを選択しました。

このハイキングでは全身用のスリーピングマットを携行しようと思ったのですが、クライミングがメインとなるこのトレイルでは外付けするとマットが岩場に干渉して危険が予想されました。175cmのマットを4つ折りにしてパック内部に収納すると、メインコンパートメントの大半が埋まってしまい、MINIでは容量が足りません。そこで、入りきらない装備や2泊3日分の食料等をStuff Pack XLに収納することにしました。

実際のハイキングでも、Stuff Pack XLは(パッキングにもよりますが)MINIに非常にかっちりと装着することができるので、クライミング時も問題なく行動することができました。
