New for 2013! Incorporating excellent organization, pack access, streamlined capacity (1460 cubic inches) and load carry (up to 30 pounds), the lightweight Granite Gear Athabasca 24 pack is equally at home on day hikes and weekday commutes.
Equipped with Granite Gear’s Vapor Daylight suspension system, comprised of a molded/channeled backpanel, a removable, HDPE framesheet and supportive foam padding, the Kahiltna 29 maintains load stability while combatting heat and moisture build-up. Padded shoulder straps and a padded, removable hipbelt provide additional comfort and load support. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps provide fine-tuned fit adjustment.
A panel-loading design includes a large main compartment and a sizable front pocket with integrated organizational features. Dual zippered hipbelt pockets and side stretch pockets offer additional storage options. External compression straps enable you to cinch down the pack to keep contents stable and secure and double as external gear lash points.
Other features include dual ice axe loops, a top-handle haul loop, reflective tabs and stretch mesh shoulder strap pockets (perfect for cell phones or MP3 players). An internal sleeve makes the Kahiltna 29 hydration compatible (hydration system not included) and doubles as a laptop pocket. A built-in rain cover provides weather protection.
