If ultra-lightweight backpacking or long-distance thru-hiking is your jam, then there's no better place to start than with the Mariposa 60 backpack. From Gossamer, you can expect a product that is versatile and accomodating to a breadth of gear. Its stretchy mesh pockets and compartments of varying sizes provide space for items as small as a pocket knife to as wide and tall as a bear canister. You can find these on the front panel, sides, and hipbelt. And the Mariposa isn't gender-specific. It has an ergonomic belt shape and harness that can adjust to the users' specific measurements. The weight then transfers from the shoulders to the internal stay and then to the hipbelt. You can remove the Sitlight Pad covering the back panel when you need a place to rest.

The result is a pack tailor-made for lightfooted excursions and enough pockets to cover every color of the outdoor gear rainbow. Before you max out the 35-pound carry capacity, you'll be well-stocked for the adventures ahead.
