This is the ultimate system to attach an ice axe, bilge pump, paddle or walking stick onto a backpack. This design offers a stable, easy system which attaches to the “daisy chain” webbing sewn on the back of a pack. The adjustable bungee cord system gives you substantial flexibility to handle a variety of shaft sizes. And the unique “lever-latching” system can be locked or disengaged with one hand. This item comes standard on our Aleutian Deck Bag with the intention of a bilge pump holder.
