The original Grand Tour debuted in the 1990's to help side-country skiers push their boundaries. The vintage rucksack design carried their skis in an A-frame as adventurers hauled their gear across ridges and up steeps. Today, we build on this idea to create a versatile, compact backpack that carries adventures to the mountains, the office, the campus and back. The side access laptop compartment, interior hanging pocket and sunglass holder, multiple accessory pockets, and interior organization easily store your computer, tablet, chargers, smartphone and office essentials while the main compartment packs in a full load of notebooks, jackets, and other gear. The frontpanel bungee attachment, dual side mesh pockets, side compression straps, and D-Ring attachment points offer even more opportunities for hauling office and adventure gear to and from the campsite or campus. These features, combined with the removable 1.5" waist belt and durable CORDURA® fabric also provide a solid set-up for day hikes, side-country or backpacking skiing, and alpine touring.
