Getting to Glacier National Park might be hard, but it's only half the battle—you still have to spend the weekend backpacking. Lowe Alpine designed the Manaslu 65:75 Backpack to handle both the rigors of travel and the demands of life on the trail, so you'll be well equipped whenever you head out on missions far from home. The capacity of the Manaslu can be expanded to over 4500 cubic inches and cinched down to under 4000, so it will work whether you're packing heavy or going light, and the Axiom 5 adjustable back system can be toggled to fit torsos of varying lengths. A pivoting hip belt helps take the pressure off your shoulders, and the pack's tough nylon ripstop fabric resists the endless grabbing of branches, rocks, and brambles.
The Manaslu's comfy to carry, but it can also hold everything you need for a long weekend in the wilderness. Pockets on the hip belt, sides, front, and lid keep everything from bottles to shells to layers accessible, and lash points and compression straps make it easy to add more gear to the outside of your pack. Stowable ice axe loops and trekking pole Tip Grippers keep your tools close when you need your hands free, and the raincover makes sure all your essential gear stays dry when the skies open up, because nothing's worse than getting to camp, pulling on some nice wet layers, and crawling into a soggy sleeping bag.
