Built for comfort and stability on long hauls with large loads, the REI Co-op Traverse 85 pack lets you customize the fit for ideal support and balance, while the mesh back panel keeps you cool.

  • Features

    • REI UpLift™ Compression technology pulls the pack load up and in, closer to your center of gravity, to improve your balance and stability
    • Hybrid trampoline back panel conforms to your body for a comfortable fit, while mesh ventilation helps keep your back cool
    • Adjustable torso and easily adjustable and swappable shoulder straps and hipbelt give you the best fit possible
    • Back panel is tensioned using a buckle at the top, which is easy to access and prevents uncomfortable spots on your back
    • Interchangeable 3D-contoured hipbelt with sculpted foam padding hugs your body for perfect fit and all-day comfort
    • REI ActivMotion technology lets the hipbelt pivot independently from the pack, so your load stays centered and you maintain better balance over uneven terrain
    • Padded mesh shoulder straps have body-mapped ventilation windows with clean bonded construction for all-day comfort and breathability
    • Top-loading access for easy packing when gearing up for a trip; J-zip on front of pack allows easy access to pack contents when you're on the trail
    • 2 long zippered pockets on the front hold gear you need to reach quickly; a stuff-it pouch holds wet gear you don’t want in your pack
    • Updated water bottle pockets have been designed for easy on-the-go access—no more asking your hiking partner to get your bottle for you!
    • Twin tool loops, trekking pole tip grips, and upper tool keepers provide multiple carry options for tools and poles, and the ability to tuck away when not in use
    • Removable top lid turns into a backpack or sling for short trips from camp
    • Recycled 200-denier double ripstop nylon body and 420-denier recycled nylon oxford bottom fabric offer heavy-duty protection and durability 
    • Integrated raincover can be deployed in wet weather to keep the pack dry
    • Hydration-compatible design features a tube holder on the shoulder strap (reservoir not included)
    • Lash points on bottom let you strap additional gear to the outside of the pack
    • Hipbelt pockets let you keep a phone, camera or snacks at your fingertips
