Why We Like The PCT 70L Backpack

We load up our essentials into the PCT 70L Backpack for a summer on the trail. The lightweight frame transfers our heavy load to our hips where the pivoting hip belt keeps it centered as we trek over rolling, technical terrain. We feel cool mountain breezes flow through the body-hugging back panel, making our sweltering afternoon miles more bearable. When we happen upon a side trail, we dump the weight and take the detachable daypack out for a little road-less-traveled exploration.
