"Serratus closes doors
In the words of Serratus themselves ... "I regret to inform you that the Serratus factory is closing. Serratus Products will not be available in the future. Therefore a review would not be significant. Thank you for your interest"
Buy them up as they are now collectors items."
This is sad news. I love my Serratus R-60 pack. It's still going strong despite 8 years of heavy use (dayhikes, snowshoes, trail maintenance parties).

I still use as my main pack a Serratus Glacier, bought by my brother 12 years ago. I guess they got squeezed between the high-quality/high price companies like Arc Teryx, and the good and cheap MEC line.

I thought that Serratus was owned by MEC? I guess I was wrong. Anybody know why they are closing? I guess the obvious would be financial reasons, but selling through MEC insures that they must move some product.
