Every ounce certainly counts, but that doesn't mean you have to opt for a hyper-minimalist stuff sack with zero structure. Instead, go with the much more efficient, and definitely more enjoyable, Gregory Women's Octal 45L Backpack. This weekend backpacking pack helps you maintain your desired base pack weight without giving up the space and load support you require on the trail. Constructed with a tough nylon fabric, the Octal provides stable, cool comfort courtesy of an AeroSpan suspension system and EVAP moisture-wicking backpanel that wards off soggy, aching backs, while the FocusForm shoulder harness and extra supportive hipbelt feature targeted comfort zones that let you cruise down the trail on Cloud 9. Then, a LeafSpring lumbar pad in the hipbelt saves your energy to prevent you from tapping out before your first day on the trail is over. The custom fitted rain cover stows in the top pocket for quick access when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and Gregory gave this pack numerous zippered pockets and gear loops to organize and carry your ice axes, trekking poles, helmet, water bottles, and sunglasses.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
