Show Description

Float along effortlessly on overnight or multi-day backpacking trips. The Trail Motion™ hipbelt pivots from side to side, up to 12 degrees to stop the pack from swaying and sapping your energy. On complex terrain you can reduce the amount of motion to keep the pack more stable. A slim lumbar pad and a cut-out channel down the back adds ventilation. The lid converts to a waist pack, so you can bring a few items on shorter trips. Thiner tubing for the frame saves weight while still transferring the load effectively to your hips.
