The lightweight Gregory Women's J53 Backpack carries everything you need for a casual weekend backpacking trip, a day at crag, or a longer ultralight backpacking trip. You can comfortably carry up to 40 pounds of gear in this backpack, which weighs just under three pounds. Gregory made the J53 with high quality ripstop nylon for an excellent strength to weight ratio and outfitted it with the lightweight, supportive CrossFlo suspension system. Gregory's CrossFlo suspension helps to keep your back cool while you hike by bringing air through the material and by wicking moisture as you sweat. Ventilated EVA foam along the hips and shoulders is well padded where most of the weight of the pack is carried, and it is well ventilated for even more comfort. Entry into the pack is made easy through a top access point with a quick draw drawstring. The top lid is floating for when you need additional storing space and can be removed when you're going really light on a quick day hike. An internal hydration sleeve with tube port gives you the option of going with a hydration bladder sold separately, while two mesh side pockets will easily store water bottles for quick access on the trail. Side and bottom compression straps help secure your load, and hideaway ice axetrekking pole loops secure the appropriate tool for the day's objective.
