Show Description

Generations of Canadians have discovered backpacking with the original MEC Brio Packs. We’ve kept their rock-solid value and durability, but updated their look and improved the carrying systems for more comfort and better fit. This style has a sleeping bag compartment, a hydration sleeve, and a front pocket with a drainage port. Designed for women to take backpacking or on multi-day trips.

  • Top and bottom access lets you get your gear without tunnelling.
  • Removable, adjustable top lid has 2 pockets; the underside one has a key clip.
  • Spindrift collar allows weatherproof closure or overloading the pack.
  • Sleeping bag compartment with removable divider panel.
  • Hydration sleeve and hanger (hydration reservoir not included).
  • Glove-friendly zipper pulls.
  • Padded hipbelt has pockets for easy access storage of small items.
  • Stretch mesh side pockets hold water bottles, pack rain covers, etc.
  • Stretch front pocket with mesh drainage bottom keeps a wet jacket or tent fly separate from the main compartment.
  • Bottom webbing loops and bungi cords secure your trekking poles when not needed.
  • Bellowed side pockets are long to hold tent poles or compact tripods.
