The Best Backpack of the Year Is on Sale, but There’s a Catch

You can save more than $100 on The North Face’s Griffin 65, if you’re not too picky.


Ever since we got a sneak preview at Outdoor Retailer last year, we’ve been huge fans of The North Face’s Griffin 65 hiking pack. It’s our favorite among a line of four outstanding packs the brand launched in 2019 featuring DynoCarry, an easy-to-adjust load management system that makes carrying as close to a natural walking experience as possible. This pack is so well-designed and user-friendly, it claimed one of our OR Editor’s Choice Awards.

Want to grab one for yourself? You can currently save nearly 37 percent ($109) on this pack at Moosejaw. Use the promo code SOFTPRETZEL to claim the full savings, but like the headline says, there is indeed a catch. Though the Griffin 65 is available in three colors, the only shade with this level of savings is the Asphalt Grey/Tin Grey variety — which to the untrained eye looks a heckuva lot like black and white. Quantities are also quite limited, so if you want one, now’s the time to act.
