The Arc'Teryx Altra 65 is one of two Altra models designed for gear-heavy weekends or light-and-fast day trips. It’s lightweight at only 78 ounces, but it offers over 60L of capacity space. Included is AC2 technology, which combines GridLock adjustable shoulder straps, bonded MonoFrame, and a rotating Load Transfer Disc with lighter materials and more breathable suspension components. This results in greater maximum load control, while not sacrificing on comfort. Additional features include a full-length inverted U-zipper for quick panel-loading access, an internal hydration pocket with a zipper, and a key clip.
