This updated pack delivers comfort, performance and user-friendly features in a size that accommodates everything from 10-day wilderness expeditions to weekend jaunts requiring extra gear.


  • Precurved shoulder straps and hipbelt comfortably match your anatomy from day one; hipbelt webbing system adjusts with a forward pull in an ergonomic motion
  • Sculpted back panel has multiple peaks and valleys to reduce contact areas and allow sweat vapor to escape; soft foam conforms to your back for a stable fit
  • Silky-smooth Dri-Lex® fabric lines all body contact areas for chafe-free comfort
  • Hybrid frame blends external-frame comfort and load transfer with internal-frame stability; X-Brace crossed stays stabilize the hipbelt against unwanted sag
  • Sleeve in the main compartment accommodates most hydration systems; ports allow for routing the bite valve over either shoulder (reservoir sold separately)
  • Front pocket arrangement provides 2 zippered pockets on top of a stretch-woven stash pocket, allowing access to your gear without interference from the other pockets
  • Floating lid can be removed and stowed; secure key pocket is inside lid; double top collar allows you to vary the pack's capacity
  • Dual side-zip access allows easy retrieval of items buried deep in the pack; bottom sleeping bag compartment features a smooth curved zipper
  • Quick-release straps on the bottom of the pack body provide an easy attachment point for sleep pad or tent
  • Lash points on the hipbelt make it easy to keep camera and GPS pouches within easy reach; attachment points on the pack body feature TipGrips to keep trekking poles in place
  • Hipbelt pocket provides handy storage for items needed on the hike; drawcorded water bottle pockets hold bottles vertically for easy access or horizontally for extra security
  • Sew-free construction at lash points provides a lighter-weight alternative to sewn constructions without sacrificing strength
  • Tough Cordura® nylon offers superior abrasion resistance and tear strength; water-repellent zippers eliminate the need for zip flaps and provide quick access
