Sierra Designs Herald 30 Backpack:
With a super-size-me front pocket, hipbelt snap-or-snack pockets, radio/GPS attachment points, and a multitude of access points, the Sierra Designs Herald 30 Backpack parallels other backcountry packs in terms of features... it's just a tad more compact. In other words, it's ready to hold everything the minimalist in you needs for your weekend, or weeklong, backpacking trip. Trekking pole loops allow for liberated hands when a scramble is neccessary, and a thermo-molded pre-curved waistbelt keeps things comfortable where the weight should be sitting... on those hips. Side and load compression straps, along with lash tabs, give you the ability to cinch jackets and strap down sleeping pads with ease.
