The Manaslu 65:75 is an excellent all-rounder trekking pack. It features an Axiom 5 back system which is very comfortable, but also provides the necessary support needed.
The cleverly designed Axiom 5 back system provides you with our simplest ever back-length adjustment technology, while the rotating hipbelt provides stability if the terrain becomes challenging. You will also appreciate the ventilated spacer-mesh back, especially in warmer climates and the high specification foam in lumbar will help support those heavy loads as you carry your gear to a remote mountain camp.
Travelling can be tough going and the rugged ripstop fabric construction will protect the pack from rough campsite grounds or rougher transport baggage holds. The front and lower access to your gear is smart thinking as is the stow- away raincover for that unexpected downpour. With a front stash pocket for easy access to your snacks and maps and strong daisy chain lash points that are perfect for carrying a portable solar panels to keep you charged up and connected; Simply put, you are camp vibes ready with this backpack.
Lowe Alpine's Manaslu 65:75 is an extremely comfortable pack to wear when carrying heavy loads. This is due to two things; The first is it's large rotating hip belt, it moves with your body as you walk, helping reduce pressure and providing extra comfort. The second is it's air mesh aerator back panel which increases ventilation across the back whilst retaining support and stability. To top it off the Axiom 5 back system allows you to adjust the back length easily to fit the individual user by simply pulling the side loop and locking it in place.
The packs constructed from 210D nylon combined with a 6.6 ripstop grid which gives the fabric a high tear resistance and superior durability. With 3 main opening options (top, bottom and front) you can access all the contents off your pack without having to unload and sprawl everything all over the floor. Not only that, but it has a zip out divider for effective load organisation. The lid is expandable allowing you to carry more when you need to, changing the capacity from 65 to 75 (hence the name).
The Manaslu has plenty of extra storage options with a zip pocket on the lid and hipbelt, a large stretch mesh pocket on the front and two on the side. I particularly like that the daisy chain accessory straps aren't hanging off the pack making it likely to catch on other things or people. Instead they are neatly hidden behind two pieces of fabric, ready to pull out when needed. If your wearing thick gloves you may have to take them off to do this though.
