Hiking long trails to the summit is a lot comfier with Salewa's Ascent 26 Backpack. Its Air Fit suspension system places cushy mesh everywhere your body touches for a highly breathable ride through summer's warmer weather. The Ascent is a traditional top loader with the straps tucked securely in the side pockets so they don't snag on any branches. Salewa equipped the Ascent 32 with everything hikers want for convenience on the trail, and even a few features for random ice climbing days. There's a hydration port for your reservoir's hose to slide through, and the rain cover protects your gear in case some wet weather passes overhead. The Ascent also features attachments for trekking poles or ice axes, and there are multiple pockets for versatile organization.
