It may weigh in at least than three pounds, but it's equipped with everything you need for long day tours, and it's highly packable so you can even tote it along as a second pack for multi day trips.

The thermo molded back panel and ergonomic shoulder straps offer comfort when you're logging serious miles with your own two feet. The insulated hydration sleeve prevents your water supply from freezing up in the frozen wilderness. Multiple gear loops and dual ice axe loops keep important gear close at hand. Top and side compression straps help you manage large loads, and the top lid is removable for when you're trying to shave every possible ounce. A helmet holder stores your brain bucket on long approaches, and hip belt pockets offer easy access to snacks and gels when you're on the go.
