You did a lot of bushwacking as an unexpected downpour descended on your weekend hiking trip. Luckily the Macpac Esprit 55 Packs weatherproof, durable fabric kept your gear dry, and the womens-specific fit felt comfortable as you battled through mile after mile of dense brush. The Esprit 55 backpacks long, flared hip-belt slides smoothly over your hipbones and frees up your glutes so you can harness more energy from those buns of steel. Macpac placed the narrow shoulder straps close together, and added soft foam pads and a high sternum strap to alleviate chest pressure when you have the Esprit 55 locked down. A high back pivot point helps maintain this packs stability as your hips move, and outer pockets hold a water bottle and a small digital camera.
