"Do nothing in haste," wrote Edward Whymper after his first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1868, "look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end." We took Mr. Whymper's words to heart as we designed this pack: simple and well thought out - much like the ones we see him wearing in old engravings from the Golden Age of Mountaineering.
The generous top-flap buckles over the pack's ample opening; cordlock and drawstring cinch out spindrift and alpine blasts. Comfortably wide web shoulder straps plus a large grab loop complete the pared-down elegance of the Knapsack. Now you're ready to follow in Whymper's footsteps, or simply carry one of his books down to the coffee shop. 16"x 16"x 4".
