This pack was designed with the thru-hiker in mind. It is an ultralight workhorse capable of carrying loads of up to 35lbs comfortably. This pack comes stock with everything you will need out of a pack while on a long distance hike.
The internal frame features two contoured aluminum stays which are removable and a 1/4" foam back pad which is not removable. It also has a fully padded hip belt and lumbar area. The aluminum stays extend down into the lumbar area of the hip belt right behind where the hip belt wings attach to the pack making for the a very comfortable carry and great load transfer toy our hips.
All of our packs have the same S-shaped shoulder straps which work great for both men and women. Our shoulder straps are about 2.75" wide and are made using high quality 1/2" foam, 1/8'' spacer mesh, and a 420D Robic Nylon. This makes for a very comfortable 5/8" thick shoulder strap. Our shoulder straps and hip belt wings are both reinforced for extended life.

This pack is constructed out of tough 4.8oz VX07 X-Pac material for the main pack body, VX21 for the side pockets and back panel, and VX42 for the bottom of the pack.
This pack is big enough to easily fit a large bear canister inside vertically, while still having plenty of room to store the rest of your gear. It has 50 liters of internal capacity, and 10 liters of external capacity, bringing the total to 60 liters. It also comes with a V-style top strap which makes it possible to carry a bear canister on top of the pack.
This pack is also very modular, and most of the features are removable. When all of the optional items are removed from the pack, it turns into a frameless pack making it perfect for shorter trips where its increased carrying capabilities are unnecessary.
