The North Face Terra 35 is a journey pack ideal for light overnights or considerable day hikes. A mesh channel on the back helps ventilate air on hot days and cushy shoulder straps make hauling your load more comfortable. 

A whistle on the buckle is an added safety feature for wilderness hiking. Compression straps throughout the pack help hold the weight closer to your body - dispersing the weight from your shoulders to your hips. A comfortable bag for long wear that’s durable for the trail or a tour through Europe. Side pockets store water bottles and are accessible and easy to reach - the North Face Terra is also water bladder compatible.
