Marmot Freya 35 Backpack
Simply and logically designed, the Freya packs just enough features into its 35-liter frame—ice-ax loops, ski-carry straps, and a gear loop on the hipbelt—to make it our go-to pack for multiple activities. With a removable lid and framesheet, it can also transform into a lighter, less bulky daypack. Bonus: we love the price. 3.4 lbs.
