The world is full of secluded beaches, hidden hilltop campsites, and solitary desert vistas, but you'll never see any of them if you don't load up the Gregory Stout 35 Backpack and go pay them a visit. The Stout's TrailFlex internal suspension, HDPE framesheet, and pivoting TrailFit hip belt will help keep the weight off your shoulders when you're squeezing between desert boulders and through tight beach side trees. The addition of a stowaway rain cover will make sure your sleeping bag, extra layers, and food don't get soggy when a sudden cloudburst catches you out during your overnighter. Speaking of your sleeping bag, it's easily accessible via the bottom zipper, so there's not a whole pack's worth of gear standing between you and bedtime. Before you lay down, though, you might have to climb some steep scree and fourth class rock, so you'll appreciate the loops for your trekking poles that makes it easy to use your hands for added security on steep slopes, or they can be used to keep an ice axe close at hand. Pockets on the sides hold water bottles, while two stash pockets on the lid are perfect for maps and snacks.
