Fanny Pack fans rejoice! This custom built, purple and grey hip pack from our good friends at Nittany Mountain Works is the perfect companion for your explorations! The largest of the Lizard Hip Sacks, it measures 12" x 6" x 3.5", and easily converts to an over the shoulder sling pack.
Perfectly sized for a days rations on the trail or to keep some essentials on-board when wandering in the city. Large front pocket for quick access to a wallet and other often used items... like your Lizard Maps, which fit perfectly!
What can you carry in this very hip Hip sack? We stuffed it with a pile of things we often bring on a short hike. We put in 4 Lizard maps, a dog leash, a GPS unit, a bandana, an anti-COVID mask and pack of hand sanitizers, a little first aid kit, a Lizard Ditty Bag, some mints, car keys and wallet, a headlamp, and a cell phone. And when we got back we had added a cool turkey feather we found on the trail. (Just to be extra clear - none of this stuff comes with the Lizard Deluxe Hip Sack, you'll have to find your own turkey feather!)
Horizontal daisy chain spans front of pack for attaching things like carabiners or a blinky light for nighttime runs or rides. The elastic keeper loops on the waist strap keep the pack streamlined when in use. Mesh back panel keeps you cool. Made from 1000D Cordura Nylon.
Made in Pennsylvania by real people working in a 100% solar powered building in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, right smack in the middle of the Moshannon-Quehanna Lizard Map! How cool is that? You can check them out here.
The Loyalsock - Worlds End Lizard Map will help you plan all your adventures in and around Loyalsock State Forest from Williamsport to Worlds End State Park. This is one of the most popular 4-season State Parks in Pennsylvania.
"Thank you so much for the latest Loyalsock Lizard Map and the Adventure List :) It has already enabled me to squirm my way into a good little wild trout stream in Lycoming County that I was unable to find a legal way in prior from another direction. I am finding more and more value in your maps primarily because you have updated trails, and have added new trails, that may not show on even the latest USGS topos" -John in PA

"This is one of the most amazing landscapes we have ever mapped. The sheer number of waterfalls and cascades make it a special place, but the remote feeling that these trails offer is really special." Michael Hermann - Lead Cartographer
