Our “keep it simple - stupid” canvas day pack built for New Zealand’s rugged conditions. Clean, sturdy construction, minimal seams, C-Canvas for durable water resistance (and less noise in the bush) and that traditional, diamond-in-the-rough feel.

The size, simplicity and all-round toughness make this a popular pack for commuters, walkers, trampers and hunters alike. Also, in a nice (and, it has to be admitted, unplanned) turn of events, the Miklat meets sizing requirements for cabin baggage – another string to this pack’s bow. An extremely versatile Cactus classic.

If you love the no nonsense approach of the Miklat, but need more serious load carrying capacity, check out the BLT. If you love the Miklat but need to carry ice tools and crampons, you could get an attachment added for an extra cost. Email us here or call 0800 122 682 for more info.

  • A generous size main bag, made of C-Canvas for water resistance and that soft but bombproof feel
