Product Description

Large volume women’s specific pack with wide loading options and an easy to adjust suspension.

Features

•Not just a smaller men's pack, it features a slimmer width and height plus anatomically angled, ergonomic shoulder straps to fit a woman's shape.
•Dual access to pack: top loading plus a horseshoe-zipper front panel opening, like a duffel, gives complete view of contents.
•With a new ''rip-and-stick'' torso adjustment, shoulder strap system easily slides on pack's frame to fit torsos of varying lengths.
•Removable top lid pocket lets you stash some essentials to bring into tent, so pack can stay outside or in vestibule.
•Zippered pocket under lid stores maps and keys, spare batteries and other small essentials.
•Front panel features an oversized zippered pocket protected with a waterproof zipper for storing often-used gear.
•V-pull waistbelt allows you to use a natural pulling motion for quick, easy cinching and precise adjustment.
•EVA Soft Edge shoulder straps move seams away from your body with cushioned edges for non-binding comfort on and off the trail.
•Durable molded foam backpanel has channels for air circulation, increasing ventilation to keep your back cool and dry.
•Pre-curved waistbelt with a Delrin® hoop is designed to cradle hip bones for a more natural fit and distribution of pack weight without sagging.
•Internal sleeping-bag compartment with a zippered divider separates it from gear and clothes in the main compartment.
•Utilizing four buckles, the pack's streamlined compression system lets you cinch and strap down loads for jostle-free carrying.
•Concave head pod at the top of pack gives your head freedom of movement--no more staring at the ground.
•External mesh side pockets hold water bottles, energy bars and other essentials you want close at hand.
•Behind mesh pockets both sides feature zippered accessory pockets that are sized to fit gloves, hat, energy gels and more.
•Hydration-compatible design features an internal reservoir sleeve and dual exit ports for drinking tube.
