This thing swallows gear like a python. It’s a top and side loader with a gigantic sleeping-bag compartment, and a removable top-lid that works as a day pack. It has six exterior pockets for keeping your little things organized. The hip belt can be custom molded to fit you, and it has a pouch for a hydration bladder. The best part, though, is that it’s incredibly comfortable and does a great job distributing weight. For a week-long trip with a ton of extra gear, it made an 80-pound pack feel a lot closer to 50.
