Indigo Rox 18
Best lightweight backpack ever. Had it for over four…
Price Paid: $80?
Best lightweight backpack ever. Had it for over four years, no problems yet.
The only chance i would not have this bag with me is if what i need for the day doesn't fit. Side separate opening is good for many options, easy reach around while on the go!
I want it with me when i die.

New for 2005 are the Rox top-loader alpine packs by Indigo. The Cafe Pocket hydration system, which was introduced with the Rox 18 and 28, is now incorporated in our new line of alpine packs. The Cafe Pocket holds 2 liters of water and access is now on both sides of the pack. The Rox 40 and 60 also includes the new Envelope closure system, a new harness, shoulder straps and hip belts. To lighten the load, we are using a new 210D high tenacity nylon fabric, with great abrasion qualities.
