Product Highlights

The Marmot Women’s Athena 48 is a versatile, hard-working pack for multi-day backpacking adventures. Easy to use and comfortable, the Athena 48 features no-hassle main body access plus many exterior pockets and attachment points.

Marmot's women's packs incorporate features designed specifically for female users. Anatomically designed, the women’s specific shoulder harness accommodates a woman's curvature while the waistbelt offers finely tuned support and comfort over the hips.

A single, removable aluminum stay and a removable framesheet equip the Athena 48 with lightweight, reliable support that can be left at home if the desire to travel lighter should strike. The Athena 48’s ventilating back panel allows warm air to escape so that you stay cooler while carrying weight. An ergonomic waist belt and shoulder straps with wrap-around padding help to balance loads. The waist belt also features a gear loop and stash pocket for convenient storage. Side compression straps help you to cinch and secure the contents of the Athena 48 for optimal balance and load distribution.

The large main packbag of the Athena 48 is accessed through the large J-shaped zipper. Featuring organizer pockets and a key clip, the adjustable lid is completely removable if it’s not needed for shorter trips. Additional organizational features include an adjustable dual tool attachment system, an external stash pocket for easy access to essentials on the go, lid and front lash points and dual stretch water bottle pockets. A hydration port and clip for a hanging reservoir (not included) make the pack hydration system compatible. Last, but not least, the Athena 48 also includes a free raincover.
