MARL is a 42 Liter ultralight hiking backpack using high-end material X-Pac VX21 (VX42 for bottom panel). The main compartment is 42L (39L for torso S, and 47L for torso XL) and there are additional 3 mesh pockets on the outside. With the roll top closure, two side compression straps, and one top compression strap, it is easy to adjust the packing volume of MARL to suit all types of trips.
The roll top closure also increases the ability of weatherproofness.
The front big mesh pocket provides an easy access space for storing personal stuff. It is ideal for placing wet gear or raincoats. It would help dry your stuff at the same time keep your main compartment clean. There are two side pockets for water bottles or your maps.
Hip belt pockets in place for small snacks or small camera.
