Light touring and hiking backpack, particularly made for women: the Glacier Point

A lot of women know this problem: Many unisex backpacks do not exactly suit the female anatomy. If this is the case, it is recommended to use a backpack that is particularly made for women. The ladies’ backpack Glacier Point was developed to adapt to the female body and is even adjustable to different back lengths and shoulder shapes.


Plenty of room and still light

With its 40 liters of packing volume the Glacier Point 40 is perfectly suited for hut tours, multi-day hikes and weekend trips. It offers enough space and is still light and comfortable to wear. Especially petite women and those who want to carry as little as possible should have a look at the smaller version Glacier Point 33 LT, which is reduced to the essential details.

Touring backpack with many useful details

The glacier Point 40 convinces with its extensive features.  It is divided in a main and a bottom compartment with separate accesses. Due to a lateral opening, the main compartment is quickly accessible from outside. Additionally the hiking backpack offers further storage space in the mesh pockets on both sides and the front pocket with the integrated helmet attachment.

The Glacier Point is also compatible for hydration systems and contains an integrated waterproof protective sack with a roll-up closure to protect your utensils from moisture and rain. The backpack comes with a supplementary rain cover, to keep the outer fabric nice and dry. And for hiking tours the lateral fixation for hiking poles has proved to be very practical.

High carrying comfort through adaption to female anatomy

The Glacier Point 40 was especially made for women and suits the female anatomy perfectly. The padded shoulder straps are even more S-shaped than the ones of the unisex models and can be adapted individually to narrower and beefier shoulder contours. The weight-reduced X Vent Zero Plus carrying system is light and guarantees optimum ventilation of the back. It is adjustable to various back lengths and therefore suitable for smaller women as well as for taller ones.

Glacier Point was incidentally awarded by the hiking magazine ‘Wandermagazin’ with the quality seal “audited hiking quality” and also the outdoor online magazine airFreshing.com tested this backpack extensively.
