This bag makes allot of sense. Throw it in your large duffle, or if you must your wheeled luggage, and when you arrive at your destination you have a handy day pack for day time excursions. At first glance those straps might look uncomfortable but I think the increased air flow would be welcome in the heat.
An excellent accompaniment to a larger pack, the Scrambler compresses and packs into its own 7″ x 6″ x 3″ pocket. Pull it out and pack it with basics for your last leg to the summit or for a jaunt from base camp.
The 1,600 cu. in. capacity fits extra layers and a lunch. Two pockets in the hood let you keep smaller items easily accessible. Shock-cord web on the front of the pack compresses your load and provides external storage. A removable foam back-panel pad supports the pack’s contents and provides a pad for comfort when you’re sitting or belaying.
