Pacific Crest 55L is a 55-litre hiking backpack that'll hold everything you need on self-supported backpacking trips, trekking holidays and long-distance footpaths.
Designed to give the essential features for trekking over multiple days with a low starting pack weight so you can carry more kit and less pack. A lightweight foam, carefully selected fabric and removal of unnecessary features seen in some hiking backpacks has kept the weight under 2kg without compromising performance, durability or comfort.
Organising your kit is easy with an array of pockets that can be accessed without removing the pack. Comfort comes from the fully adjustable back system with large air vents for airflow.
Pacific Crest 55L has a durable construction that's reinforced in high wear areas. The waterproof fabric provides a high level of water resistance and separate rain cover stows in the base of the pack.

How It Is Made
We've used a PFC-free durable water repellent (DWR) on the outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment.
Gear you'll love for longer
Increasing the lifespan of your kit reduces its environmental impact. We've use 420D ripstop nylon and 600D reinforced nylon for increased durability

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
