REI’s Talus 50 is an internal frame backpack, larger than the REI Talus 35, adequate for weeklong trips. It loads from either the top, through a drawstring with an expansion collar, or from the side through a zipper which runs the length of the backpack. The drawstring at the top is covered with a removable, dual compartment, floatable pouch.



- Large technical top-loading daypack with side zip access features a unique compression flap and strap system for carrying winter gear.

- Fabric flaps and webbing straps hold a snowboard, snowshoes, shovel or other gear--or, flip to the side for securing skis

- Floating top lid has two zippered pockets to keep essentials close at hand and expands to take on increased loads

- Two shear-mounted buckles on front of lid and two straps in back fully adjust to accommodate larger loads and allow secure compression of gear

- Main compartment features a large hydration sleeve (reservoir sold separately) and plenty of room for hiking or alpine gear

- Molded foam back panel features suspension mesh that is cool and comfortable plus it sheds snow and leaves the dirt behind

- Curved, padded shoulder straps with sternum strap, padded hip belt with stabilizer straps

- High-density polyethylene frame sheet curves to fit the shape of your back and protects it from bulky, pointy loads

- Along with the HDPE sheet, providing frame support is an aluminum Y split mono-stay

- Two adjustable ice axe loops, two side tool loops and a daisy chain let you attach an assortment of gear
