Whether it's a multi-day trek above treeline or a long weekend getaway to your favorite alpine meadow, shoulder the Lowe Alpine Women's Cerro Torre ND 60:80 Backpack before starting up the trail. The adjustable women's specific Axiom 7 Back System suspension allows you to comfortably pack up to 70 pounds of gear, and the extendable top lid allows you to cram a few extras in to keep you going on a longer expedition. Lowe designed the hip belt to pivot with your hips for more comfortable walking, and it added padded, adjustable straps to help keep your shoulders from suffering.
It's tough to stay organized during an extended trip, but the Cerro Torre makes life a little easier with a zip-out divider in the main compartment and a series of pockets, including two on the hip belt. There are special loops to carry ice axes, trekking poles, and extra gear on the outside of the pack, and an included raincover. The Cerro Torre's party piece, though, is the removable hydration pack, which has room for a reservoir, food, and a layer to help you travel efficiently on short trips away from base camp.
