GOSSAMER GEAR Mariposa 60 backpack - is Gossamer Gear's bestseller with a removable internal frame, load lifters, and 7 built-in pockets, that weighs only 865g. New updated version feature new softer foam padding. 

It provides plenty of storage and roomy pockets for organizing wide range of your gear from bottles to food, tent, clothing and therefore is very popular with hikers who demand lightweight gear that’s highly functional and durable for long-distance treks. There are seven extra pockets - one mesh for wet stuff, two easy-to-reach for water and high-energy snacks, and the rest for whatever else.

It is made of Robic nylon fabric. 100D Robic nylon is used for the main pack and thicker more durable and abrasion-resistant 200D Robic nylon for critical areas - bottom of the pack and the side pockets.
 Robic fabric is waterproof and sheds water well in rain, but the backpack is not completely waterproof and leak at the seams which are not sealed, so we recommend to use waterproof stuff sacks or line the pack with the plastic bag to protect your gear against rain and moisture. 

This though pack has a lightweight frame which provides a very comfortable carry even with overloaded with 15kg of gear. 

The Gossamer Gear Mariposa is a versatile pack with huge carrying capacity and perfect set of features and plenty of storage space in external pockets for backpackers who enjoy multiple options for organizing gear. 

How to Attach Hiking Poles to Your Mariposa? For attaching trekking poles hiking poles, an umbrella or other gear to your pack you can use Lightrek Pack Bungee Attachment (sold separately).
