Carrying four nights’ food and lodging for myself and others means an inevitably heavy pack. The Gear of the Year–winning Xenith was spacious enough (5,400 cu. in.) and—most important—perfectly fitting, with heat-moldable hipbelts and easy on-the-fly load adjustment. Especially handy in the thirsty heat was the externally accessed hydration sleeve, for quick refills. $349.
