grasshopper

$160

for the backpackers who get confused as dayhikers. this is a school-bag inspired backpack with efficient thru-hiking features like lashing points, side-pockets, and bottom pocket.

my choice for a 3-season appalachian trail hike — where conditions are mild, water carries are short, and towns are frequent.

it is also great for romping around town or out on a dayhike.

  • ultralight water-resistant backpack fabrics
  • water-resistant zippers
  • two stretchy side pockets
  • stretchy bottom pocket
  • minimalist straps with 1/2″ thick foam
  • lashing points
  • weighs about half a pound

to maximize your enjoyment out of this pack when backpacking, i’d recommend a baseweight around 5 pounds and a max carry at around 15 with most of your time spent at or below 10 pounds.

* note that the grey variation has a daisy chain on the straps *
