  • Features

    • Removable framesheet, stays and top lid let you create a minimalist configuration for incredible weight savings
    • Minimalist configuration weighs a scant 2 lbs.
    • Precurved hipbelt is designed to cradle your hip bones for a natural fit and evenly distribute load weight without sagging
    • Hipbelt webbing system allows you to use a natural forward pulling motion for quick, easy cinching and precise adjustment
    • Hipbelt has a zippered pocket for on-the-go access to essentials such as snacks and lip balm; lash points on the other side let you attach a camera bag or GPS pouch
    • Precurved, dual-density padded shoulder straps match your anatomy for nonbinding comfort and stability
    • Back panel features mesh-covered, perforated foam for breathability and a fixed suspension system for low weight and easy use
    • Twin aluminum tubular stays and a precurved, perforated HDPE framesheet maximize structure and minimize weight
    • Under the lid, an over-the-top compression strap pulls the load in close to your back and provides a place for lashing on climbing ropes or other bulky items
    • Over-the-top compression strap has a thin storage pocket to stash a few small essentials; includes a key clip and a rip-and-stick closure to secure cash and ID
    • Deep, catch-all front pocket keeps large, often-used items within easy reach
    • 2 mesh pockets on each side hold water bottles and other stowables
    • Water-resistant zippers on top and front pockets and a rip-and-stick closure on the pocket underneath the lid allow you to safely store valuables away from the elements
    • Multiple lash points on the top pocket and front of pack provide attachment points to carry additional gear
    • Quick-release bottom straps accommodate a sleeping pad; side compression straps secure both large and small loads for increased stability
    • Hydration sleeve and hanging clips hold a variety of reservoirs (sold separately); dual exit ports allow you to route a drinking tube over either shoulder
