Weight: 6.25 lb
Length: 10.00 in
Width: 12.00 in
Height: 29.50 in
Dimensional Volume: 3540.00 in3
Dimensional Volume (DV) is NOT the number used by manufacturers to denote capacity. To get a cubic inch number that you can use to compare to what you're accustomed to, multiply DV by 1.5 as a rule of thumb. Bigger packs can use an even bigger multiplier - up to 1.7.

The qui-Ya is the big brother to the Ute and is identical in many ways. With the same heavy duty chassis as the Ute, it will carry as much weight as you can handle but with all the nimbleness of an internal frame pack. However, the qui-Ya has a taller frame and much larger internal volume which makes it quite light for its capacity and a great choice for a dedicated multiday pack.

  • ~5500+ ci capacity
  • 6.25lb
  • Price includes Prairie Belt. When ordering, be sure to add a Prairie Belt in your choice of sizes and colors and then use the coupon code "utebelt" to remove the price of the Prairie Belt from your purchase.

  • $5 of the proceeds from every qui-Ya pack sold goes to the Ute Tribal Scholarship Fund

Just got your new pack? Here's how to get it properly fitted.

Edward Curtis Canyon De Chelly
When humans first set foot in a new continent, they came in small groups under their own power, bringing only the gear they needed. Most simply called themselves The People. Over time, those who chose the rougher freer life of the up country came to think of themselves as the Hill People.
