Start moving in the right direction when you scale down your kit with Coleman.
Explore more freely and cover more ground when you dramatically reduce the weight of your hiking kit with the ultralight Glacier Basin backpack from Coleman. Whether you are an experienced hiker, a weekend warrior or a novice chomping at the bit, understanding the importance of the right kit is something Coleman takes very seriously.
Combining the newest edition to the Coleman backpack range with their failsafe tips to scale down your hiking kit, the Glacier Basin backpacks are the ultimate lightweight backpacking and hiking companion. Keeping you adventure-ready, the Glacier Basin backpack is available in three different sizes, ranging from 15-30L, and in two colour options, vivid tennis ball green and grey with yellow.
1. Reduce pack weight
Made from a lightweight yet durable rip-stop polyester fabric, the Glacier Basin weighs just 630g (30L model), helping you to reduce your pack’s weight without compromising on other essential items. Combined with padded waist and shoulder straps, the Glacier Basin backpack offers optimised comfort for an enhanced outdoor experience. A force of three to six times your body weight is exerted on your knee with every step. When you factor in the weight of a backpack, saving weight on your back will in turn save your knees. By simply reducing pack weight you can easily reduce the stress on your back and joints that is traditionally caused by carrying heavy weights over long distances. Hiking and camping with a lighter load will allow your body to go further.
2. Stay hydrated
The Glacier Basin is hydration system compatible and the mesh side pockets will easily accommodate a standard-sized water bottle to keep you adequately hydrated on the move. Staying hydrated is one of the most important rules of any physical activity and will help you maintain your energy levels when on a hike. The body can lose more than two litres of water and electrolytes per hour if the hike is strenuous and in the sun. Making sure you are correctly hydrated before you embark on your adventure and using a map to plan trail refill stops is as important as planning the journey itself.
3. Plan your pack and carry only what you need
Coleman’s philosophy behind the design of the Glacier Basin range is less is more. The spacious, top-loading main compartment and front and side pockets maximise the pack’s practicality and versatility. The Glacier Basin backpack has both bungee straps and daisy chain to keep essentials close to hand for easy access.
Planning exactly what you are going to take and how you are going to take it will help to avoid taking impulse items and adding unnecessary weight.
