Mountain Hardwear Kanza 55 Backpack
A clean and simple lightweight SilSeal Ripstop Cordura Nylon design, the Kanza 55 Backpack from Mountain Hardwear modifies its alpine suspension to maximize ventilation, while maintaining excellent support and load transfer. Fully featured, this pack uses a glove-friendly Compression Strap System to effectively shrink and minimize volume that tucks away inside the front pocket when not in use. Its top skirt extends to add 375 cu. in. / 6L of carrying capacity on demand, while the Kanza 55's Floating top lid with bungee web is removable to reduce weight. A roomy front pocket provides convenient storage for frequently-used items, ice axe and ski pole attachment straps and convenience, and stretch woven side pockets offer quick storage/access for water bottles, hat/gloves, etc. This Mountain Hardwear backpack is perfect for anyone shaving ounces and moving fast.
