TEST CALL TEXT FOR - NEPAL 65 L BACKPACK

Let's give a big welcome to a new manufacturer - Cotopaxi. Three testers will be putting their Nepal packs through winter testing. These are great looking packs with some options that can allow them go from light to even lighter. Tons of features not usually found in packs in this weight range. PLUS - they're out to make a difference in the world. Each pack purchase pays for schooling for a student in Nepal. Cool idea!
