  • Shoulder straps and hipbelt feature thoughtfully designed angles and varying padding thickness to accommodate a woman's shoulders, chest and hips

  • Lumbar pad and back panel are covered in spacer mesh for enhanced cushioning and ventilation
  • Peripheral-hoop alloy frame provides a light and flexible structure that effectively transfers load weight to the hipbelt

  • 2 ice axe loops let you lash tools or extra gear on the outside of the pack
