This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

  • Top-loading pack shaves weight with its lightweight yet tough 210-denier, high-tenacity double-ripstop nylon construction
  • J-zipper panel access on the front of the pack body makes stowing and accessing your gear a breeze, even when it's buried deep in the pack
  • AirScape Suspension uses peripheral rods, a nubbed foam back panel and an internal framesheet
  • Running down the sidewall, the peripheral rods anchor to load lifters and hipbelt, actively transferring load and resisting sag
  • Providing superior load support is the women's IsoForm CM (Custom Moldable) hipbelt, a 3D dual-density foam designed to fit the female hip structure
  • Osprey certified Custom Molding available in most stores—check your local REI store for a custom hipbelt molding oven
  • ErgoPull hipbelt closure provides extra leverage in cinching, drawing tension along top and bottom—not through the center—relieving hipbone pressure
  • IsoForm dual-density foam harness with Spacer Mesh promotes airflow and wicks away moisture during warm weather and intense activity
  • Top pocket can be removed and converted into a lumbar pack; IsoForm hipbelt on pack can be removed and slid onto lumbar pack for comfortable carrying
  • Dual-entry side mesh pockets and a built-in front mesh pocket keep essentials easily accessible
  • Front compression wings let you securely compress the contents of the pack, whether full or nearly empty, without sag or load distortion
  • Ski straps, ice axe tool loops, extendable lid and skirt accommodate a variety of alpine gear
  • Hydration-compatible design features reservoir pocket and dual drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir not included)
  • HDPE framesheet and single aluminum stay protect back from bulky or pointy items and support heavy loads
  • Closeout
