This women’s pack has all the smart design hallmarks Arc’teryx is known for, but two features make it particularly suited to desert treks, with their frequent side-to-side, up-and-down movement over uneven terrain. Its pear shape hugs the body, making the load feel lighter than it is, and a feature called the Load Transfer Disc on the hipbelt lets the whole package pivot as you step, leaving the hips to freely do their thing. $449
