The Montane Yupik 50 is a lightweight and fully featured rucksack with an adjustable ZephyrAD ventilation back system, ideal for multi day trekking and hiking.
With a full feature set and weighing an incredible 1.5kg the Yupik 50 has been designed to give you everything you need and nothing you don’t. From the fantastic load transfer and carrying comfort of the height adjustable, ventilated ZephyrAD back system, to the double lid closure, multiple storage solutions, including the iconic double front zipped mesh pockets and base compartment, no compromise has been made. The Yupik 50 allows you to travel lighter and move faster in absolute freedom, ideal for long weekends or super-light trips in the wild.

Montane's Yupik 50 Litre Rucksack replaces the Grand Tour 55. Now you might just expect a few updates considering it's still designed for multi-day trekking but really it's a whole new pack, and a better one at that!
At first we were disappointed to find that it's actually heavier than the Grand Tour 55 but the fact Montane have changed the materials to a tougher, more durable fabric, added a boat load of useful features including a new adjustable ZephyrAD ventilation back system, and of course the fact it can carry 10 times it own weight, makes us think it's not a bad trade off.
It's not for those people who are obsessed with weight reduction rather its for those who want a well designed and well featured pack that's also tough enough to survive weeks on the trail without demanding too much by way of careful use.
The feature list is long so I won`t repeat it here - just to say that we especially like the horizontal zipped base compartment opening and internal zip divider as it makes it easier to separate gear while also offering improved access.
