  • Harness straps are shaped to fit a less curved torso
  • Made with rugged, recycled ripstop nylon that withstands whatever the road throws your way
  • Fabric has a durable water repellent (DWR) finish to shed light rain and stains; for harsher weather, there's a stowable raincover that pops out quickly of the side pocket
  • Lightly padded shoulder straps provide carrying comfort; sternum strap gives extra stability when you're running to a departure gate
  • Foam-padded, ventilated mesh back panel promotes breathability
  • Laptop sleeve can also accommodate a hydration reservoir (reservoir not included)
  • Zip top pocket holds your ID, cash and other stuff you need often on the road
  • Side and top main-pocket access makes it quick and easy to find what you need
  • Hidden daisy chain on the front of the bag lets you lash gear when you need it, and conceals when you don't
  • Access port at the top of the pack accommodates a hydration reservoir tube (reservoir not included)
  • Compression straps keep the weight of the pack close to your back for stability
  • Top handle makes it easy to grab and go
  • Trekking-pole attachments tuck out of the way when not in use
  • Sternum-strap buckle doubles as a survival whistle
  • Lockable zippers keep bag contents secure while traveling (lock not included)
  • This item meets carry-on size restrictions for most airlines (size not to exceed 45 linear inches when adding L+W+H; this is subject to change, so check with your airline)
  • Made to reflect our love for people and the planet through the use of bluesign®-approved materials and recycled materials
  • Recycled materials keep waste out of landfills and bluesign®-approved materials conserve resources and protect the health of the environment, workers and user (you!)
