How do you make the Pacific Crest Trail feel like the Pacific Coast Highway? Let this pack smooth out and speed up the miles. I literally ran the San Juan Mountains’ nine-mile Hope Lake Trail with the Arreba stuffed full. Credit the pre-curved harness, narrow back panel, and Wraptor Stabilizer System, which draws the load to your back. We also liked the quickdraw compression system and offset hipbelt buckle (for one-handed adjustments). Cargo capacity is perfect for fast-and-light overnights. 2,400 cu in, 2.3 lbs; www.gregorypacks.com
Bonus: Silicone-injected nylon shaves ounces.
Bummer: Don’t scrape that thin nylon on rocks.
