A tried and tested pack, sized for backpacking and gear-intensive multi-sport weekends. The Response A3 suspension adapts to your body and maintains your centre of gravity through shifting terrain for a smooth, comfortable stride. Multi-density foam in the hipbelt and shoulder straps place padding exactly where you need it, and removable lumbar foam lets you adjust the contour of the back panel. The ventilated back helps you keep your cool, while the removable rain cover protects your gear when the clouds move in. When you’ve set up camp, remove the integrated hydration bag and use it as an ultralight daypack for summit bids and scrambles.
