Product Details

For women looking for a simple and effective backpacking solution, this Lariat 55 backpack is it. Designed specifically for a women’s body, this pack is ideal for extended trail or urban backpacking treks. The roll-top lid closure makes this a versatile option, as it packs well with a full or a light load. Further improving the convenience of the Lariat, the outer pocket is a detachable day pack with shoulder straps for short trips from camp and summit assaults. The U-shaped zipper on the front provides easy access and makes this ideal for urban travel when you need to retrieve gear in tight places like trains or hostels. The use of CORDURA® fabric will ensure that this pack will last for years to come.

A plethora of additional features make this an easy bag to live out of, including a torso ladder sizing system, easy forward-pull waist belt, lightweight aluminum suspension, smartphone-sized waist belt pockets, side canted water bottle pocket, pocket pass-through compressions straps, ridged EVA back panel padding, and generous lash points for tools.

To bring you peace of mind for your backcountry investment, Mountainsmith offers a lifetime warranty on their products. If your backpacking trip might include some urban travel, then this is the backpack for you.
