    From car to remote wilderness camp.

    Move from the trailhead to remote wilderness camps with the Thule Guidepost 65 Backpack. This full-featured pack is designed to carry all the gear you need for a weekend in the wilds while sporting a four-way adjustable fit to optimize comfort for the trail. An internal spring steel frame and aluminum stay supports heavy loads, and a padded back panel with pivoting hip belt maintains top-shelf comfort whether you're packing light on a quick overnight trip or weighed down with gear for a four day stay.

    Access to gear is made easy through either the top load access point or the j-zip side panel access point where you can access gear packed at the bottom of the pack without having to spill everything else out on the trail. Unique to Thule packs is the removable lid, which can be converted into a fully functioning 24L summit pack with shoulder straps. Multiple gear loops allow either trekking poles or an ice axe to be secured to the front of the pack, and with a hydration compatible design, you can have easy access to water while you hike.

    Great showing from Thule's new venture

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pack is absolutely incredible. I like packs that are accessible and full of features without being overly heavy. In the end, I was looking at this pack against the Osprey Atmos AG, and a couple of Fjallravens higher end packs (which honestly was in part because of the brand). I ended up going with this pack because it had pretty much every feature I wanted in a pack and weighed less than Fjallraven. It also does a few things better than any other brand. The lid that converts into a summit pack is absolute genius in design. It takes a little bit of work to set up, but I've always believed that doing things right is better than doing things easy.
    Probably the biggest selling point on this pack is the pivoting hipbelt. Again, absolute genius. If you've ever tried moving with a regular pack and felt the way it stays put as you move, and been frustrated with that, then you should buy this pack as well. The hipbelt makes doing almost everything easier while wearing the pack (including walking - which you'll do a lot of).
    The team at Thule thought of it all. Everything right down to the placement of the water bottle pockets on this pack has impressed me. Accessible, organized, and not ridiculously heavy.


    This video is from Thule and shows the key features (in order): Pivoting hip belt for freedom of movement, Transhub suspension (with adjustment for shoulder width and profile, torso length, waist size), J style zipper for access to top and lower side of pack, angled bottle holder, gearloop with small hole stitched to hold trekking poles, Lid-to-Summit top pocket.

    NOTE: This pack comes with a Men?s Medium waist belt (31"-37")
