Marmot Kompressor 18L Backpack

$41.21 (25% off, was $54.95)

The Kompressor makes for an excellent summit pack—its 18 liters are spacious enough for food, water, extra layers, and some gear, while still small enough to allow free range of motion while climbing. The name “Kompressor” is also quite literal here, as it packs down into its own pocket for easy storage and travel. The nylon and polyester fabrics are durable yet lightweight, with the entire pack weighing just 10.2oz.
