Mountainsmith Haze 50 Backpack - 3050-3234cu in - $129.95

If you prefer to travel fast and light in the mountains, load up the minimalist-inspired Mountainsmith Haze 50 Backpack before you start up the trail. Despite a featherlight weight of under two pounds, this pack is still comfortable to carry thanks to the innovative ICS Cup hip-belt and air-mesh foam back panel. Plus, the DWR finish on contact points allows such points, like the hip-belt and back panel, to dry quickly after you work up a sweat on a steep set of switchbacks. - $129.95
