Back Panel and Hip Belt
The backpack features a contoured, anatomically curved back panel with body-mapped foam for a precise fit with ventilation. The full-zip back panel provides duffel-style access to the pack interior. The articulated Open Range Hip Belt threads behind the compression molded back panel for positive load transfer to the lumbar, providing stability with flexibility. The cut-to-fit hip belt provides a tight wrap on hips and eliminates gaps between body and pack. Dual hip belt stabilizer straps allow the upper and lower section of the hip belt to be adjusted separately for a custom fit.
Contoured Shoulder Straps
The backpack also comes with premium contoured shoulder straps featuring an adjustable sternum strap and hydration hose keeper, load lifter straps allow fine-tuning of weight distribution. The backpack's unique Hoist Compression system pulls pack weight inward and upward for positive load transfer while raising the bottom panel up to secure the load. The cored aluminum perimeter frame, shoulder straps, and hip belt function as a fully integrated suspension system that provides more balance on uneven terrain through a positive load transfer.
Storage and Pockets
The backpack offers top-loading access to the interior with roll-top closure and two side webbing buckle closures that easily adjust with pack volume. The internal 3L hydration bladder pocket with bladder hook, discreet tube routing port, and hose keeper clip on sternum strap, makes it easy to stay hydrated while on the trail. The backpack also features compartmentalized storage which includes: hydration bladder pocket, two stretch mesh side pockets, front quick-stash pocket, and front zip pocket with key keeper.
