The Manaslu is a great all rounder, suitable for a fully equipped back packing trip into the countryside or a gap year round the world adventure.
It all starts with the back system, the Axiom 5, a super simple system for adjusting to your ideal back length. The rotating hip-belt allows the load to remain stable as you power across rough ground, saving you energy, as it helps you to maintain your balance. To keep you cool the back panel is vented creating a through flow of air, just what you want if you're planning on packing a heavy load over long distances.
To cope with the knocks and scrapes of wilderness adventure the pack is made from a tough ripstop material.
With two main access points into the main body of the pack to quickly and easily locate your gear. For smaller items like maps there's a slash pocket on the outside and trail snacks find a convenient location in the waist belt pockets.
If the weather turns against you there is a rain cover stashed away, that will encapsulate the pack keeping your gear dry.
