KATABATIC Onni LiteSkin - 65L ultralight backpack with hipbelt pockets included.
The Onni LiteSkin would certainly be your favorite piece of gear. It represents a great combination of a durable, waterproof, lightweight pack that is highly comfortable with heavy loads as well. The pack is completely waterproof, including the Cordura bottom.
Side compression cords worked well when you need to stash your trekking poles and ice-axe. The side pockets and hipbelt pockets are easy to access, so you don't need to stop to take off your pack to eat, drink or pick something out. The hip belt pockets have a nice amount of stretch and plenty of room for phone or snacks. Roll top closure with added feature of tiny magnets is quick to close and won’t snag your clothes. It is also easy to compress your load by rolling down the top and minimize the volume of the pack if not totally full.
"Ultralight and comfortable, with loads of convenient options? Yep. This is the kind of pack you’ll forget you’re carrying. You’ll be so jazzed with all the features and customizable options, you’ll be skipping down the trail with your new Onni."
