The versatile, mid-sized Fjallraven Kaipak 38 backpack offers the durability and storage (2300+ cubic inches) for light-packing overnight trips or technical day hiking.
The pack is equipped with internal aluminum support stays and contoured backpanel padding to effectively carry weight and cushion the load against your back. The shoulder straps and padded hipbelt are fully adjustable and a sliding sternum strap further enables you to dial in fit and keep weight stabilized.
The pack's G-1000 Eco fabric, a blend of polyester and cotton, is incredibly durable. It's highly abrasion-resistant and UV-protective. NOTE that the application of Fjallraven Greenland Wax (sold separately) can bolster the fabric's weather protection. The wax is easy to apply, allows you to customize the level of protection, and even gives each pack a unique aesthetic over time.
The top-loading pack has a protective lid that is adjustable in height to accommodate additional storage. It also has a large zippered front pocket and zippered storage pockets in the lid and hipbelt offer additional organizational options.
Other features include stretch water bottle pockets, a safety whistle integrated into the sternum strap buckle, trekking pole/ice axe attachments, and an included raincover. An internal sleeve and drinking tube pass-through make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
