Read the review from Altrec Outdoors, it is spot on! This pack is awesome until you try to fit your food in for a three day hike. It is very comfortable and durable. Just don't expect to pack the kitchen sink on an overnight trip. I would recommend this pack for minimalist ultralight hikers or those wanting a spacious daypack.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Skareb 40 from The North Face is ideally suited to the outdoor athlete looking to push farther, faster. Incorporating the X-2 suspension system for the weight-saving load support called for in done-in-a-day or overnight adventures, the Scareb uses E-VAP foam that wicks moisture from the back and shoulders.

Go light and fast with The North Face Skareb 40. This Flight Series ultralight pack is a smaller version of the Skareb 55 that is ideal for overnight backpacking or climbing trips when weight is at a premium. The Skareb 40 comes in three sizes for superior fit and its active-cut contour hip-belt and X-2 aluminum suspension system allow you to pick up the pace with ease. As you gain miles and altitude, the split-contoured shoulder harness and back panel's E-VAP technology circulate more air to keep you dry and comfortable. When the storm clouds move in, a rain cover located in the left zip pocket keeps your gear dry, while your hard-shell is within reach in the front mesh pocket. Grab your ice ax from the Skareb's gear loop and make your way to the summit. Catch your breath, take your water bottle from the right zip pocket and enjoy the view.


The Skareb 40 is a mid-capacity pack ideal for that fast-paced 2-3 day trip. This ultralight pack is full-featured and utilizes our lightweight aluminum X-2 Suspension.
