With its lightweight materials and reversible, double-duty design, the Arete 18 is one of the most versatile packs we make.
When you’re not wearing it, it reverses into an insulated reservoir sleeve - perfect for holding your water supply steady inside a larger pack. Ready for a quick hike? Just flip it inside out, and you’ve got room for snacks, layers, essentials, and 1.5 liters of water.
Its lightweight materials and packable design also make it an excellent travel bag that won’t add bulk to your luggage. We updated this version of the Arête with additional pockets to keep your gear organized, along with a sternum strap and a lightweight back panel to give the bag a little more structure.
