York 70

HMW Outdoors

The York 70 is a key component of the Youth Adventure Kit, with its 70L of capacity, the YORK 70 meets student, scout and young backpacker requirements for multi-day trips.  The adjustable suspension allows it to grow with its owner, adjusting across a wide range of small to large framed hikers.  Designed for ages 11 and up, and with an adjustable torso between 14" and 21" (This means your student will not out grow our pack).  Our pack can accommodate a first year Scout/backpacker through college.  The YORK 70 by HMW Outdoors is a comfortable, durable, lightweight long hauler made for summer camp, camporees, and extended stays in the backcountry.


We hope the York motivates you, as it does us, to Keep Moving Forward.
