Why We Like It

Achieving fluid motion takes more than counting ounces. The just-launched ultralight Optic 48 combines weight-saving design with exceptional fit and load management to give you a low base pack weight along with mileage-crushing efficiency. Thoughtful trail features, a comfortable carry, and a custom fitted rain cover (see the top pocket) let you focus on the journey, not your backpack.
