Backpackers know what features they need in their camping gear. They often have to search in catalogs, on the Internet and in sporting goods stores to find a model that offers the features they really need. The Alps Mountaineering company decided to seek out the advice from backpackers on what features a new model should have. Without sacrificing quality, ALPS’s designed a backpack with you in mind.
The most interesting of the two new models that came out was the Zion. The Zion includes several pockets that allow a hiker to easily find all their necessary items. The organization goes so far as to allow a backpacker to place his sleeping bag, air pad or other items on the top of the unit where it is most comfortable to carry.
The people who helped us design this backpack really do love it. Features found on the Zion backpack make this pack a top-of-the-line item!
