For a gear-intensive day hike up to that high-mountain lake or a quick weekend venture, The North Face Solaris 40 Backpack holds your necessities easily. The North Face's open-air mesh panel down the back of the Solaris 40 Backpack allows airflow between the pack and your back, so you don't end up with an uncomfortable, sweat-soaked shirt as you push through your quick peak-bagging trek.


Built with backpackers in mind The North Face Solaris 40 is well suited for long day trips or quick overnights. The adjustable suspension system features dual-density shoulder straps and a three-point adjustable hipbelt which make for a stable and comfortable load. Stretched across the back, the open-air trampoline mesh Verti-cool backpanel lets air circulate between back and pack. The bottom zippered compartment features a trampoline divider to separate gear from your sleeping bag. This panel loading pack can be accessed through the top or through the bottom sleeping bag compartment and has enough exterior pockets to keep all your gear organized and easily accessible.
