Inspired by ski packs built for the urban sprawl.

Mountainsmith first introduced the Grand Tour Backpack for backcountry ski touring nearly thirty years ago, and now it's been updated for touring through metropolitan areas. This casual daypack now features a side-access compartment ideal for large laptops and an internal sleeve for hydration reservoirs. Mountainsmith made this pack out of durable Cordura with EVA padding and breathable Airmesh at the shoulder straps and back panel for comfort. The Grand Tour also features a fleece-lined pocket for sunglasses, dual side pockets for water bottles, a front panel pocket for topo info, and organization slots inside the main compartment.

    Great Bag for Any Use

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I live/work in Europe. I have taken this bag with me for every trip, (for any amount of time between overnighters and 7ish days) and it a versatile bag to say the least. For 19L it fits a pretty solid amount. Whether that's ski gear for a quick day tour, a 4-day weekend vacation to a new city/country, An overnighter on a mountaintop, or just a bag to take your stuff to work every day, this bag is a good choice. Durable material, buckles and straps hold skies nicely, and I really dig the pocket for your shades.

    That being said, I am a minimalist, and can live out of this bag for several days in the backcountry. If you're the type of person that needs to take the kitchen sink with you for overnight backpacking adventures, I suggest looking at a big bigger bag.

    Awesome work/travel pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this pack recently to use while travelling for my job and love it's features and quality construction. Just holding it and pulling stuff in and out, I can tell this pack will stand up to years of use and abuse. The separate side access padded computer sleeve is much nicer to use than having to open up the main compartment. Inside there are plenty of room for jackets/layers as well as organizing pockets for a few smaller items. The hidden hanging pocket makes for a great place to stash keys/money, and the quick access sunglasses pocket keeps your lenses scratch free. I bring this on the plane with me and check my main luggage and have no problem going multiple weeks with this setup.

    GRAND TOUR

    The side access laptop compartment, interior hanging pocket and sunglass holder, multiple accessory pockets, and interior organization easily store your computer, tablet, chargers, smartphone and office essentials while the main compartment packs in a full load of notebooks, jackets, and other gear. The frontpanel bungee attachment, dual side mesh pockets, side compression straps, and D-Ring attachment points offer even more opportunities for hauling office and adventure gear to and from the campsite or campus. These features, combined with the removable 1.5" waist belt and durable CORDURA® fabric also provide a solid set-up for day hikes, side-country or backpacking skiing, and alpine touring.

    GRAND TOUR

    GRAND TOUR

    The original Grand Tour debuted in the 1990's to help side-country skiers push their boundaries. The vintage rucksack design carried their skis in an A-frame as adventurers hauled their gear across ridges and up steeps. In 2016, we built on this idea to create a versatile, compact backpack that carries adventures to the mountains, the office, the campus and back.
