Rocky Mountain Underground, or RMU for short, is a ski company, but its BRFCS is a contender in the realm of adventure travel bags. The BRFCS — fill in the vowels for pronunciation — was the Colorado brand’s second foray into outdoor and travel and builds on the success of its Core Pack, an all-purpose backcountry adventure backpack.
The BRFCS is a carry-on compatible bag with a 35-liter base capacity that expands to 50 liters. RMU outfitted its interior with compartmentalized storage for clothing, (there’s enough room for ski boots), and smaller zip pockets for necessities and essentials; there’s also a false bottom. The BRFCS also features a padded laptop sleeve and a removable compression strap with hardware that doubles as a bottle opener. It can be carried like its namesake, with backpack straps and a stow-away hipbelt or as a shoulder bag.
The BRFCS is currently available at a discount of 15% off at Huckberry.
