  • Patent-pending, double-helix shaped spring steel frame is attached to the back panel, ensuring a free range of motion for hips and shoulders while preserving full load support
  • Double-helix design offers more freedom of movement than pivoting hip belts and allows your torso to flex, stretch and turn freely without loss of stability
  • Carrying system is so innovative it recently won the OutDoor Industry Award, a honor bestowed at an outdoor industry gathering in Friedrichshafen, Germany
  • Top-loading design features front-panel access and a lower sleeping bag compartment; detachable lid sits atop a spindrift collar and over-the-top compression strap
  • Organize and access often-used gear with a front pocket, side pockets and water-bottle pocket
  • Compression straps take up extra volume; sleeping pad straps and attachment points for tools and poles make it easy to secure gear to the outside of the pack body
  • The Bergans of Norway Glittertind 55 pack is made with YKK® zippers and 210- and 420-denier ripstop nylon for durability
