Antero 2.0 (Closeout)
The Antero was one of our first entries into the EDC market and is a favorite around the office. From heading to work, jumping on a plane, or hitting the trail, the Antero did a lot of things well. Over the last 7 years we have heard a lot of feedback from our customers and rolled it all into the Antero 2.0.
The Antero 2.0 is made from 500d Cordura and has #8 Aquaguard YKK zippers on the outside. There are two outer pockets and two inner mesh pockets on the panel. The lid pocket has 150 in³ of space with a key hook. The front pocket has 120 in³ of space and works well with our Pullouts or Small possibles pullout. The side pockets were kept from the old Antero and will hold 32oz. Nalgenes, tripods or fishing rod tubes using the side compression straps. There are hydration hose exits at the top of both side panels and elastic hose keepers on both shoulder straps. The back panel is padded with Hydrophobic 7mm spacer mesh that has Apex spacer mesh sewn over top. This provides padding without absorbing and holding onto sweat. There is a pass-through for an EDC belt that will allow you to use our Gunbearer System with this pack. There are beefy grab handles on the top lid and front bottom with a low-profile handle above the shoulder straps for hanging the bag up.
On the inside of the pack, you will find a hydration sleeve that is sized to hold 16″ laptops (18″ Tall x 10″ Wide) and is suspended off the ground. The interior of the bag is fully lined with VX21-S Xpac to help protect your gear from moisture. The frame sheet is made from 1/16″ HDPE and has a single stay with a reinforced sleeve to prevent tear out. The bottom has dual webbing tracks to work with a Sherman or Grab-it. Hanging up top in its usual location is a Xpac chamber pocket. Sized to fit adult torsos, the Antero 2.0 is TSA carry on compliant.
