Incorporating excellent organization, pack access, streamlined capacity (1460 cubic inches) and load carry (up to 30 pounds), the lightweight Granite Gear Athabasca 29 backpack is equally at home on day hikes or 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 Athabasca 24 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 main compartment, a sizable front pocket with integrated organizational features and a stretch pocket on the face of the pack to keep jackets and other items readily available. 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 Athabasca 24 hydration compatible (hydration system not included) and doubles as a laptop pocket. A built-in rain cover provides weather protection.
