Manufacturer's Description

Stability and comfort combine in this svelte women’s-specific mountain biking pack that’s a great fit for any trail—from gentle fire roads to technical singletrack. With high-performing features and a little extra room for a little extra gear, the Salida 12 is the “Goldilocks” of packs you’ll find yourself reaching for to accompany meetups at your local trailhead (and meetups at your local watering hole afterward). The main compartment zippers wide open to reveal pockets for bike tool organization and enough space to stuff a spare tube, an extra layer, and your lunch. An AirScape backpanel offers max ventilation and stability while rolled, soft-edge shoulder straps offer a nice distribution of weight and a no-pinch design. A separate compartment houses an included 2.5-liter reservoir, and zippered hipbelt pockets store things you’ll want easy access to, like trail snacks. A LidLock attachment holds a standard-size helmet on the front of the pack while side compression straps expand to fit a full face helmet as well.
