Show Description

Cool features and thoughtful design details set you up for smooth, efficient hiking. Sized for women, it has narrower shoulder straps, angled to match a woman's torso, and flared hip pads that comfortably transfer weight to your hips. The pack uses MEC's Cross Wind back system: a 4mm steel wire to create a trampoline panel against your back. Lined with airmesh, it channels air into a space between the pack and your back to keep you cool as you ascend steep sections.
