Resistant, windproof, generous space and lightweight. These are the main features that make up a great backpack to take on the mountains. Usually, buyers need to choose a trade off between weight and durability, as thicker materials generally make for a stronger piece, but add on to the overall weight.

Epperson Mountaineering Backpack

Measuring 21 x 13 x 8 inches and holding 17 liters of luggage, the Epperson Mountaineering packable backpack brings one of the most balanced weight to wear resistance ratios out there. The outer shell is made from nylon ripstop, posing a high tolerance to wear and tear, while also making up for great windproofing.

Daisy chain webbing of climber-grade, heavy duty zipper and highly finished sutures make for a highly resistant mountaineering accessory. Shoulder straps are padded and designed from breathable material, minimizing sweat accumulation when you’re really putting in the effort over those tricky rocks.
