No reason to get a different pack for each adventure, the Arc'teryx Kata 45 Backpack is a versatile carry-all for any adventure – from a sunny afternoon at Smith Rock to a day-long ski tour into the Sisters Wilderness. Whether you're on the go at home or in a distant land, this Arcteryx backpack has a multitude of pockets to keep your gear organized and a hydration-compatible design to keep the liquids comin' when you're out on the trail. The two removable aluminum V-stays distribute the load between the anatomical shoulder straps and the padded hipbelt, while the Arc'on™ suspension reduces load sway to keep you balanced and moving easily over any terrain. The Kata pack is a top-loader with an extendable collar for more capacity and side compression straps to snug it up when you're traveling light. From brushes with tuff to squeezes between snowy conifers, you don't need to worry about the Kata making it home in one piece, Arcteryx made this daypack with tough 420-denier Cordura and reinforced the high wear areas.
