Whether you're doing some minimalist packing magic for a few days of backpacking or just escaping the rigors of daily life for the weekend, the ultralight ExPed Women's Lightning 45 Backpack ensures you have a comfortable, secure means of carrying your gear. The single-stay frame offers outstanding load support, and the single compartment offers a snug center of gravity for outstanding load control.
The T-Rex suspension consists of a single, adjustable aluminum stay. The back length ranges from 16.5 inches to 22.5 inches, so that most women will find the perfect fit. This breed of aluminum offers a high strength-to-density ratio so your pack won't wilt when you reach the 53-pound maximum capacity. Likewise, you won't wither from barely-there pack weight of a mere 2.3 pounds. The dual-density foam hipbelt molds to fit your specific shape. The roll-top access protects your gear from the elements like a dry bag. For small items you want to find quickly, or for your hydration bladder, there's a zip pocket inside the pack.
Crafted from 210D nylon and coated with a layer of polyurethane, the fabric on this pack is almost as tough as you. Two elastane stretch pockets on the outside hold water bottles or long-limbed items such as tent stakes. Two ice axe loops and two trekking pole loops let you accessorize, and four base loops can be used to hold your rain coat or deflated sleeping pad. The M-style compression straps on the sides snug down your stuff to keep mass centered for a balanced approach up and down the trail. A vertical compression strap up top ensures the roll-top stays shut, compresses pack contents from above, and can do double-duty as rope holder.
Offering a women's-specific design, Exped's Lightning 45 is lightweight and compact for comfort on the long haul.
