Lowe Alpine's Alpamayo 70:90 Backpack might be made to haul large amounts of gear on long treks and multi day backpacking extravaganzas, but that doesn't mean it's a brute. It's slim where it should be and featured in all the right places, so you can put the miles behind you in relative comfort without having to constantly fiddle and fuss with your pack. Lowe's Axiom3 adjustable back system works with the rotating hip belt to provide easy personalization and killer comfort when the pack is on your back, and the TriShield Grid fabric provides a rugged barrier against grabby branches, rocks, and rain there's also a raincover, if the skies really threaten to open up. Getting all your stuff in the Alpamayo is a cinch, since it can hold up to 90L of gear, but it's also easy to find once it's in there, thanks to the dual front and top entries. Side and lid pockets provide convenient places for snacks, maps, and water bottles, and the Tip Grabber pole carrying system gives you a sturdy place for your sticks when they're not in your hand. Various lash points let you add on more gear as needed, and the Alpamayo's ingenious hydration sleeve doubles as a removable hydration pack, so you can stay quenched if you're leaving basecamp behind for a quick adventure.
