The Shaka 55 is a lightweight pack that lets you keep the deluxe comfort fit and convenient features you find on heavier models. Fitting into the "overnight-plus" category in terms of volume, the Shaka 55 features a unique aluminum perimeter stay that locks into the hip belt for efficient weight transfer, while still allowing a slight degree of ergonomic pivoting. The aluminum stay is augmented by a HardWave corrugated plastic framesheet, which is rigid horizontally to prevent the contents of the pack from intruding into the back section, but is also flexible vertically so that it can better conform to your back.

  • Customizable suspension with 3in / 8.5cm torso adjustment (hook and loop) plus swappable shoulder straps and Lightweight hipbelt
