Just flip it right side out, and you’ve got room for 16.5L gear capacity for snacks, layers, essentials and 1.5L/50oz of water.
Its lightweight materials and packable design also make it an excellent travel bag that won’t add bulk to your luggage. We updated this version of the Arete™ 18 with additional pockets to keep your gear organized, along with a removable sternum strap.
With its lightweight materials and reversible, double-duty design, the Arete™ 18 is one of the most versatile packs we make. When you’re not wearing it, it reverses into an insulated reservoir sleeve—perfect for holding your water supply steady inside a larger pack.
