All-in-one hiking backpack is what Sierra Designs Flex Capacitor can be described as. It features a unique pending gusset system that allows you to pack fast and expand the pack from 40 to 60 liters with a few strap adjustments. The backpack doesn’t expand up as others do – rather, its perimeter expands, which provides you with quick and easy access to your load. This means that you can pick up or lose gear as you go.

There are side zippers for you to make use of when on the go as well as side pockets with adjustable volume. Stuff them with your hiking essentials like a water bottle, snacks and sunglasses. The hip-belt is made from EVA foam, and so are the shoulder straps – the manufacturer ensured your ultimate comfort when designing the backpack.

The compression straps along with the belt stabilizer and load lifter straps are of big help when loading your backpack with lots of things that have to be worn for long hours. The trip works together to help you stabilize the load and distribute it proportionately.
