    Chimera 18L Backpack

    When you're moving fast and light on day hikes in the mountains, reach for The North Face Chimera 18L Backpack to carry your necessities. As part of The North Face's Dynamic Series, the Chimera 18L features a Dyno Cinch compression system that enables on-the-fly load stabilization and compression without taking the pack off. These one-touch lower and upper compression bungees snug the load close to your body to keep you moving unencumbered through the miles while allowing the pack to shed grams from traditional compression systems that weight down other leading day packs of a similar style. When you're moving fast on strenuous ascents, the FlashDry technology and breathable back panel keep you cool and comfortable. Gear loops and multiple pockets intuitively store your gear while a hydration sleeve and side water bottle pockets keep you refreshed throughout your hike.
