Home Button On The Trail

WelcomeThank you for visiting the website of Suluk 46. We design and build backcountry gear for the Ultralight Backpacking Community.

The gear you see here may be very different then what you see elsewhere. At Suluk 46, there is a continuous push to create products with the lowest possible weight while still being usable by the experienced ultralight backcountry adventurer. The creations here will literally push the limits of strength/weight ratios. You will find that this truly is the place where engineering meets backcountry equipment. This website was created to document, share, and improve the designs and gear I have been building. However, you'll notice that I also use this website for several other aspects related to the backcountry. Please take the time to browse through the website, learn about the products, read the trip reports, gear lists, and of course check out the R & D section for cutting edge creations.


Vacation is over...for now. Orders being shipped promptly!
