Gossamer Gear Mariposa 60

Our bestseller. With a removable internal frame, load lifters, and 7 built-in pockets, this is a gear-hauling workhorse that weighs in at just 907 grams.

This award-winning pack’s roomy main pocket holds your shelter, clothing, sleeping pad and food. There are seven extra pockets - one mesh for wet stuff, two easy-to-reach for water and high-energy snacks, and the rest for whatever else.  


A while ago, we mentioned to a well-travelled friend that we hoped to stock Gossamer Gear's tried and proven Mariposa 60 backpack. On hearing this, they pondered and slowly revealed it as their ‘pack crush’. Certainly, the first time we had heard a backpack described in such a way but completely relatable. Their crush proved a worthy one! Our test trialling ambassadors love the 7 extra pockets, overall comfort and balanced load carrying ability.
