When you're headed for a long trail you want our Makalu. It's made especially for extended trips with only a tent for a roof and room enough to carry all your essentials, food, and clothing for a decadent weekend or a spartan week.

Chose your size, 65 liters for a 3-day weekend in comfort, or the 85 liter for an extended trip with the bare necessities.

Not that carrying 85 liters of anything but air is easy, but with the Makalu pack we make carrying a weeks worth of gear and food on your back more comfortable than you would imagine .


Our IBC suspension system adjusts to your torso length and rests comfortably on your hips. Two aluminum stays inside distribute the load evenly over your hips.


The hip belt is contoured not only around your hips, but is cupped to hug your illiac crest. There are two removable, zippered pockets on the hip belt for snacks or other small items.


Stretchy side and front panel stash pockets plus 3x  compression straps to hold gear or reduce pack volume.


Multiple lash points: Ice axe loops, ladder chains, elastic cord ties, bottom straps, and 3x compression straps.

Shoulder straps have plenty of dense padding, with a sternum strap that adjusts up or down and has an emergency whistle on the buckle.

The main pack has a huge, top-loading main compartment with an extendable lid. There is a partition on the bottom that can be accessed from the frontside via a huge #10 YKK zipper with dual-sliders.

Webbing straps along the bottom let you add things like a rolled up sleeping pad or tent.

Hydration ready with two exit ports on either side, and a sleeve against the back panel to hang a water bladder within. Plus tons of other features.

Excellent pants!

I'm an avid backpacker who backpacks in the USA and in other countries. I love these pants! They're moisture-wicking, lightweight and comfortable. They're also attractive. I can hike for the day, and then come back to the city I'm visiting and fit in with the business crowd. Very nice! These pants are of high-quality and keeps you cool in the summer. I highly recommend these pants!


Warm and comfortable baselayer. It could be used as a mid layer at cold temperatures. I really like the power stretch things. Regarding sizes, I am 6’0’’ and fit, I got L52 , it fits perfect

The price is so high. Bang for the buck! The price must come down to $70.00.

Great buy

Great durable bag

great pack

I bought this 3 years ago, it's been all over the world with me. Very happy with it! It's still looking pretty new after 3 years. The many compartments are very useful and convenient for finding your stuff. the hard back is great for carrying my laptop and external keyboard and there is separate pocket for them as well which helps the main compartment be more organized. The only downside is that the water bottle pockets on the side don't security hold a big water bottle, for me it would be better if they were taller, the strap above the pockets can lock in a taller water bottle but it doesn't work perfectly, sometimes the bottle falls out. Nevertheless very satisfied with this pack and recommend it.
