Multi-day packs (55 - 75l)
How to choose a multi-day pack
Built for multi-day hikes in the backcountry and taking on some of the longest trails in the world, multi-day packs (55-75L) are big enough to carry all your essential gear in the comfiest way possible. These packs prioritize organization, durability and minimizing body strain.
Before picking your new pack, it’s important to consider features like capacity, fit and any extra features you may want in a pack:
Capacity: Multi-day packs are typically 55-75L, one step under expedition packs which are 75-100L, making them extra spacious; the duration of your hike can help you choose how big your pack should be, as more days means bigger pack.
Fit and adjustability: Getting your pack fitted is crucial to your comfort on all your trips to come, while you can fit a pack at home using a sizing guide, it’s hard to beat getting your pack fitted professionally (bonus: some stores have weights to put in your pack so you know exactly how it feels when it has some weight stacked on).
What else to consider: Things like pocket organization to quickly locate items like first aid kits, compression straps to stabilize your load and reduce bulkiness and hydration compatibility for easy access to your hydration bladder are all specs you might want to look out for.
