This ALPS Red Tail backpack holds an impressive 4,900 cubic inches of gear while weighing less than six pounds. This backpack is made of ripstop polyester which is lightweight and reinforces threads in a crosshatch pattern to prevent tears in fabric from spreading, allowing for long-lasting durability in extreme conditions. Bottle pockets on each side and a hydration pocket and port provide plenty of water storage. The ALPS Mountaineering backpack includes both side and over-the-top compression straps to secure and stabilize all of the contained gear.
The Red Tail's top pocket adjusts up and down and even detaches to convert into a fanny pack for a quick hike. The top of the Red Tail pack extends with a spindrift collar to allow a little over-packing when necessary. A kangaroo pocket on the front is great for keeping your jacket or fleece without taking up extra space in the pack. The lower door with #10 zippers, along with an internal horizontal divider, provides great storage utilization.
This ALPS backpack includes a rain cover, stored in the bottom of the pack, to protect against all types of weather. For emergency situations, a rescue whistle buckle is included on the sternum strap.
