For a day hike up to that high-mountain lake, The North Face Solaris 40 Backpack holds your extra clothes and food. Stuff a compact sleeping bag in the lower zip compartment if a quick overnight might be in order. Load the Solaris Pack from the front, and keep your water bottles accessible in the two outside pockets. The North Faces open-air mesh panel across the back of the Solaris 40 Backpack allows airflow between the pack and your back, so you dont end up with an uncomfortable, sweat-soaked shirt. Adjust the waist-belt and transfer some weight off your tired shoulders. Trekking pole loops free up your hands for quick scenery snapshots or two-hand rock scrambling.
