I see a Medium belt is now included and installed. Where can I find a Small and Large belt?

You can order a different size belt here Hipbelt with Pockets

Will a Bear Canister fit inside a Mariposa? 

Yes, all models of bear canisters will fit vertically in this pack! Smaller designs like the Bare Boxer and the Bear Vault 450 will fit horizontally in the main compartment.

How do I attach trekking poles or an ice axe to the backpack? 

We suggest using our Pole Storage Bungee and then running that through one of the many attachment loops provided on the packs exterior. This will insure secure storage.

Still deciding? 

Can I use this backpack without the hip belt?

Yes! But when using this pack without the hip belt you must remove the internal stay.
