The women's Arc'teryx Altra 62 pack brings comfort and stability to your mid- to long-range adventures. This workhorse combines an advanced, breathable harness with a sturdy frame and light weight. Highly breathable suspension system features a women-specific shape and fit and creates a direct link between spine, suspension and bag.

Anatomically shaped shoulder straps feature a core layer of perforated, air-permeable foam lined with breathable mesh for next-to-the-skin comfort. Shoulder straps adjust both vertically and horizontally for a personalized fit. Rotating Load Transfer Disc(TM) allows the hipbelt to pivot, following your natural movements for agility and stability. Thermoformed, triple-density hipbelt promotes airflow and evaporative cooling. Removable and expandable top lid comes with 2 zippered compartments and a map pocket. Extendable collar with drawcord adds capacity to the main compartment for handling large loads.
