Now Smaller Than Ever – The New Pinnacle 50L Hiking Backpack

Introducing the newest size for our Pinnacle Hiking Backpack… the Pinnacle 50L! Along with our 65L and 80L sizes, this new Pinnacle is the smallest one yet.

We kept the great features of the other sizes to make sure the Pinnacle 50L is just as functional as the larger sizes.

If you’re a light packer or just going on a day hike, this backpack offers ample space for everything you would need. The large main compartment includes a hydration sleeve to hold your reservoir (not included).

The design of the backpack stays true to the other Pinnacle sizes. It still features the adjustable backpack strap and hip belt system so you can make sure your Pinnacle fits snugly on your back. It also has a flow-vent back system and a rain cover to protect your bag from the weather.

EcoGear Travels – Lake Agnes, Banff National Park

Our friend, Jared Gunderson, took our Pinnacle 65L Hiking Backpack to Lake Agnes and Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.
Check out Jared’s video of his trip above! This is what Jared recalls from his time at the beautiful national park:
With the smell of Spring in the air, my sister and I took to the trails in Banff National Park. Our destination? The Lake Agnes Tea House for a post-hike snack. The trail was still covered in snow and ice, and the views through the trees revealed a frozen Lake Louise below. The wind was howling as we reached the tea house, making our extra jackets much needed. Small waves rippled underneath the sheet of ice on the lake, while we enjoyed our cups of soup to keep us warm. Even though the temperature at the bottom of the hike was about 80 degrees, the top felt like a different world.
