3 Amazing Features That Make This The Most Versatile Backpack Ever Made!
1. Penta-zip Zipper Design Allows You To Access Your Gear Easily
We call it the penta-zip system because there are 5 zippers that allow you to access your gear from the top, bottom or middle of your pack. This zipper technology also allows the pack to make the transformation to comfortable chair possible without removing any of the gear from your pack.
2. Patented Sit-System Technology
The frame for the chair can collapse and fit in the bottom of your pack. To transform it into the chair, simply unzip your pack and remove the ultra-light, aluminum frame. The frame expands and then you simply place the ends of the frame into the seat anchors attached to the pack. This collapsible Sit-System frame is small but sturdy - rated to support up to 300 pounds.
3. Removable Switch BagsEach Chameleon includes two 16 liter (976 cubic inches) Switch Bags, which are basically stuff sacks that snap into your pack.
The Switch Bags are accessible from the top by drawstring when housed inside the pack, but we designed them with 2 full-length zippers that zip from top to bottom and bottom to top. This gives you easy access to your stuff from any angle, both as a backpack and when lounging in your chair.
The best part about the Switch Bags? They can be used as individual drawstring slings or combined as a 32-liter drawstring backpack. Think of it as two packs in one. Share the load and free up even more space in the Chameleon pack for more essentials on family or group outings.

Will You Help Us Spread the Word?
A: Less than a minute
Q: Does the chair make the pack heavy?
A: No, it doesn’t. The chair frame is made of ultra lightweight aluminum so you can barely tell that it is there. It only weighs between 3.2 lbs or 4.4 lbs (including chair frame and switch bags)
Q: There are cheaper alternatives…why buy a Chameleon?
A: After adding the cost of a nice quality backpack to a nice quality chair you’ll quickly be able to appreciate the value of what the Chameleon has to offer in the convenience of one pack.
Q: A bag is only as good as its zippers… are they sturdy?
A: Yes, we agree… That’s why we use YKK zippers – the best in the market. If a zipper fails, the bag fails so we spared no expense using the best zippers, and if one breaks, we will fix it.
Q: Do you sell compatible hydration packs to the Chameleon?
A: No, but we will soon. The pack is compatible with almost any existing hydration pack. But we are building one that will fit perfectly in the Chameleon to be the most efficient with space.
Q: Can I buy more SwitchBags?
A: Yes, we have SwitchBags available for purchase. We are developing some specialized ones like one designed to hold your camera equipment.
Q: Is it comfortable to carry a chair frame in your pack?
A: Absolutely, not only is the frame ultra-light weight but it also folds down into 6-8 inch poles making it very easy to store in the pack.
