Lighten your load with the High Sierra Lightning 30 Backpacking Pack. Offering enough space for an overnight hike or a multiday trip into the wilderness, this internal frame offers only 30 liters of space, forcing you to bring only the necessities, but trust us, you'll be much better off with a lighter pack. With aluminum stays hugging the contours of your frame, padded shoulder straps, a padded hipbelt and the open-air stretch mesh back panel keeping your back cool and dry, you'll log long, happy days on the trail. An internal hydration sleeve keeps your water handy and multiple pockets help you organize the little stuff. With ice axe / trekking pole loops and a camera pocket right up front, you'll be ready for anything Mother Nature throws your way when you're carrying the High Sierra Lightning 30 Pack.
