SKU: Women's Glacier
Whether for a weekend, head-clearing trek or a week-long mission, this mid-sized, backpacking pack offers ample space for your essentials – plus some creature comforts. The detachable lid converts into a hip sack for day trips out of basecamp.
Our signature, backpacking pack with all our proven design elements.
With women's-specific harnessing, the Women's GLACIER is ideal for long weekend outings as well as more extended backcountry trips. It’s a top-loading pack with a dual drawcord shroud to increase weather resistance and allow for upward expansion. Our Speedzip™ sleeping bag compartment will accommodate even the warmest, bulkiest bag. This pack is ideal for long weekend outings as well as more extended backcountry trips. The lid has two compartments for Type-A organization.
- The Astral Frame is a robust frame that supports large loads. The mainframe is comprised of four vertical, composite stays, dense foam for flexibility and for torsional rigidity. Through patented features and construction methods, the mainframe transfers the weight of the load into the wings which relay the weight and equalizes the contact around and into the belt. The waist belt cants and conforms over the hips to effectively transfer and distribute the weight and eliminate slippage down over the hips.
- The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
- Top-loading design for easy/secure packing
- Convertible Daypack Lid feature
- Side zip for easy access to main bag without unpacking
- Two, exterior vertical long pockets
- Speedzip™ compartment for easy access to sleeping bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie from 400 and change- not a bruise or a loose threadOriginally bought this pack for an extended trip on the Colorado Plateau but ended up using it for the first 400 and some change miles of the AT when the other trip got canceled. While it was too big for my needs on the AT, I still can’t recommend this pack enough. The hip and shoulder straps never gave me any pain. They feel like they’re made from memory foam. I’ve had bruising in the past from other packs but this I couldn’t even feel a pressure point. Cherry on top was that after 400+ miles in rain, snow, etc. getting tossed around, sliding down rocks, it doesn’t have one loose thread.

Rated 3 out of 5 by run_ski_climb from Might work for some.I spent several days trying to adjust this pack so that the shoulder straps fit properly. It cut into my side boob, and no amount of adjusting the yoke / load lifters / arm straps seemed to make that go away. I returned this pack. I think there is a lot of thought behind this pack, and if it fits you, it would be a great contender. Unfortunately, the fit was wrong for me. My bust is an A ... so it likely didn't have anything to do with the bust size. Additionally, when I loaded it up with the anticipated weight, it put an extreme amount of pressure on my hip flexors. The quality of the pack is very nice. Just a fit / comfort issue for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gtg521r from Finally a pack that fits me - 5'4"I'm 5'4" and love backpacking. Every year I go on at least one 1-2 week long backpacking trip. I've never had a pack that fit me and my gear until now. My first pack strained worryingly, was too narrow to hold a bear barrel and tent side by side, and left me looking (and sounding) like a prospector with gear clanking on the outside of my pack. My second pack was my husband's old pack, held all my stuff, but was so long that I couldn't tilt my head back to look up. Retail stores near me didn't carry women's packs in the volume I needed and store staff seemed baffled that I'd even ask. This pack fits me, fits my stuff, and isn't some heinous shade of pink or purple. I'm training now for a trip to Denali and I feel like an actual athlete with equipment that suits me and takes me seriously. It'll be a few months before I can give it a real field test, but so far this pack has performed well as I've loaded it up with sandbags to haul around the neighborhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irina from Space and Comfort!I am very impressed with the space of this pack. When it's full I carry 50lbs and it was more comfortable on my shoulders than my smaller pack that was only able to carry around 35lbs tops. The waste band is phenomenal! I do wish there were pockets at the waste band so I can quickly grab my phone or snacks but I do see that I can put one on there. Great color, very neutral. I took the top off to go exploring and it fit so many things, very convenient to have. Great pack, I'm looking forward to using it again!
