Thule Versant 50L

Feature-Rich Pack

Brand: Thule

Model: Versant 50L


The small details on the Versant stood out during a week in Utah’s Capitol Reef National Park. A waterproof pouch that clicks onto the hipbelt kept our camera accessible and protected, while big zipper pulls were easy to grab on frosty mornings. The 420-denier Cordura resisted scrapes, and the top lid converts into a sling pack for dayhikes. Our tester also praised the pack’s 4.8 inches of torso and 4 inches of hipbelt adjustability. “Dialing in the perfect fit is incredibly easy,” he says. Plus, a sturdy aluminum perimeter frame ably handles loads up to 50 pounds.

One size each for men and women
