KATHMANDU ARCHON 65L BACKPACK v4
If you're new to multi-day hiking, or enjoy tackling the occasional Great Walk, the 65L Archon is the pack for you: sturdy and reliable, made from tough Cordura® fabric, it has everything you need (bottle pockets, pole and bed-roll attachments) and nothing you don't. The easily adjustable RS2 harness has a small to XL range built in to the harness design. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel makes the trek over the Tongariro Crossing more comfortable.
