The Quest is one of three full-suspension backpacking, trekking, and mountaineering packs in GoLite’s Venture Series. The Venture packs (Pursuit, Quest, and Odyssey) feature internal frame sheets that can accommodate 40-, 50-, and 60-pound loads and are all 3-liter hydration-compatible.
The Quest is designed for all-season backpacking, mountaineering, alpinism, and adventure travel, and hauls 60 pounds comfortably, while weighing just three. It features two side hydration openings and an internal hydration sleeve; a front pocket to hold a shovel, shovel handle, skins, or probe; a removable lid with welded watertight zipper for the top pocket; two angled side mesh pockets; the ability to carry skis, snowboards, or snowshoes using side compression straps; a frame sheet with two adjustable aluminum stays; a shaped back panel and hip wings with padding to contour the back and hips; and contoured, compression molded hip wings that cushion and cup the hips.
The Quest uses GoLite’s ComPacktor system, which lets you reduce the pack’s volume through two fixed compression anchor clips that convert a multi-day pack into a day-tripper.
