Choose a Color
Black Camo

Mission Workshop The Spar is a lightweight, weatherproof sling pack designed to carry the daily essentials. One of MW most compact bags, it can be worn in either single-strap sling configuration or as a backpack with optional backpack harness.

Please note - The Black Camo version IS NOT delivered with Fidlock like shown in the picture. It comes with the standard buckle.

Additional design features include weatherproof construction, YKK Aquaguard zippers, dual-access 8-litre main compartment with microfleece-lined compartment, zippered front organizational compartment with key clip, padded back panel, and convertible shoulder strap system.

In sling configuration, the Spar can be worn on either the front or back of the body and has the dual-access capability through the top flap or side-zip entry points. The sling strap is equipped with a removable ventilated shoulder pad and can be upgraded with MW quick-adjust messenger shoulder strap assembly. The side-zip allows for access to the main compartment without doffing the pack.

The Spar is Arkiv®-system compatible and can be combined with an R2/R6 or Radian pack to create a versatile travel system.
