This suspension is supplemented with padded air mesh straps for plush load stabilization without soaking in perspiration on warmer days. The Ariel AG 75 is a classic top-loading pack, easily stuffing with clothes, outerwear, camp food, and gear. There's a zippered sleeping bag compartment for easy access, as well as removable straps for cinching a sleeping pad to the bottom. For shorter hikes at your destination, the removable top lid conveniently doubles as a small day pack. It externally carries a hydration reservoir for easier refilling on the trail. Trekking and ice tool attachments come in handy for alpine treks and technical ascents.
