Solid value and durability to make your backpacking goals a reality. With lots of pockets and burly water-resistant fabric, this pack is designed to keep your week’s worth of gear and supplies organized. There are 3 ways to get to what’s inside (so you don’t have to unpack and repack when you’re looking for snacks), and all zippers have glove-friendly pullers. It’s also designed for comfort, with an easy-to-adjust padded hipbelt and a height-adjustable shoulder harness to fine-tune the fit.
