Top of the mountain.
Mountainsmith made the Women's Apex 60 Backpack to be the leader of the pack, queen of the mountain, mistress of her domain, and the best for weekend journeys on long thru-hiking trails. This pack's heavy-duty Cordura fabric is more than equipped to withstand abrasive rock surfaces, snags on branches, and bursting through underbrush. It boasts a women-specific Anvil Airway ridged EVA backpanel padding to keep your back cool, dry, and well-cushioned.
A PE framesheet, aluminum stays at an X-configuration, and a horizontal stabilizer bar prevent your back from breaking only a day into your trip. The adjustable TuningFork waistbelt framesheet forms to your hipbones for a downright plush, stable ride. A hydration reservoir and side-canted water bottle pockets ensure that quick refreshment is always close at hand, and there's a bottom compartment that fits a compressed sleeping bags. Generous lash points and compression gear straps carry along extra gear on the exterior, and the reflective cord gives you extra visibility when you're on the trail after dark.
