Gear of the Day: High Sierra

From tents and backpacks, to headlamps, knives, footwear, jackets, and apparel, our “Treasure Hunt: Roanoke” event on July 11th in Roanoke, Va., promises to be one of the biggest gear extravaganzas ever envisioned! From the prize pool, here’s today’s gear pick of the day. . .

Gear of the Day: High Sierra Appalachian 75 Backpack

Why you want to win this gear! The Appalachian 75 backpack costs less than $100 on some websites. But the trail-worthy internal-frame model has the capacity for almost 4,500 cubic inches of gear. It weighs just under 6 pounds empty. It comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects. For the Treasure Hunt, High Sierra is also giving away its Long Trail 90 pack, a 32-inch Expandable Wheeled Duffel, and a Carry-On Wheeled Backpack.
