Take 48 liters of essentials with you on the trail, comfortably, with the women's emerald Catalyst 46 Backpack from Kelty. Shaped specifically for a woman, the PerfectFIT suspension system adjusts to your torso quickly by pulling on a couple of straps. A HDPE framesheet with dual hollow aluminum stays keep the back rigid even under a heavy load. The HDPE reinforcement continues into the waist belt so it won't twist as you scramble up the next hill. Two layer padding on the belt and shoulder straps comfortable, while load lifter straps let you control how the weight is distributed on your shoulders. Belt stabilizer straps adjust fit and weight distribution and lumbar support ensure undue pressure isn't placed on your lower back.
The pack has a top-loading design with spindrift collar lets you over-stuff the pack. A zipper provides convenient access to help minimize searches. Stretch mesh pockets on the belt hold small items at your fingertips so you're not fumbling for them as you hike. You can choose your hydration method, as the bag is compatible with a hydration bladder and has dual stretch mesh pockets for bottle on the exterior. Also on the exterior, tool loops provide a place to attach ice axes or trekking poles. A front pocket keeps oft-needed items handy. An integrated key fob ensures your keys stay where you left them.
