Marmot designed the Eiger 48 Backpack to be a versatile, do-nearly-anything pack for day and overnight trips in the summer and winter. The 2980cu inch volume lets you head out for the weekend if you pack light, and it easily carries all you need for a ski tour or day or cragging. Marmot added an A-frame ski-carry system for use on pow days, and integrated gear loops help you carry your rack on an alpine climb.

Great Pack

I have many backpacks. This one is the one I use on 2 or 3 day trips. I am 6'1" 217lb and it fits perfect. I like to eat well on the trail. That means lots of food. I have a jetboil and a Primus classic stove with pots and pans. That means a big kitchen. I like to have extra cloths and things to do in camp. I am not a go lite backpacker and for 2 or 3 days I get all my luxuries and gear in this pack. It rides like a dream.

In this picture the pack is loaded up with all of my winter clothes, a 2p tent, a sleeping pad, a winter sleeping bag, 3.5 days worth of food, a cooking pot with the stove inside, fuel, and a few small winter essentials.

I could sleep with this thing on.

Short Version: The pack has a simple design that makes it durable and light. My favorite part of this pack is the insanely comfortable back pack panel that feels like an extension of the body.

Long Version: Wow do I love this backpack. Let me repeat that again so that this review doesn’t look like a generic “I love my gear because I own it”. WOW DO I LOVE THIS BACKPACK. Out of the five packs that I have owned none of them make me as happy as this one does. The shape of the back panel is PERFECT. The material is light and malleable yet thick enough to survive an epic bushwacking extravaganza. The design is simple and durable because there are no major pack height adjustments or movable hip belts. On the same note, the simple design has lots of “why didn’t I think of that?” features (like the little loops that marmot uses at the end of every strap to keep them from flailing around). I bought this pack because I was given a price that I couldn’t pass up but I never foresaw it becoming the only backpack that I use. It is capable of comfortably carrying 3 days worth of winter gear/food/fuel. It is also capable of carrying 3 days worth of winter gear/food/fuel along with climbing shoes, a chalk bag, and a GIANT crash pad strapped to the back of it!

2 night pack

This is my 2 night summer pack. Its light, has some breathability in the back panel and has good support for its weight. I keep my packweight below 40lbs and wouldn't want more in a pack like this. It could probably handle more weight, but I would rather move to a more supportive large pack. I keep this pack in the garage ready to go on a whim's notice. Adrian Ballinger used this pack while guiding everest.

i'm looking for a 2-4 day camping and climbing pack for use in SE alaska (i pack very light) do you think this will work. do people have any suggestions i'm 5 ft 6 in and 130 lb

Responded on

2-4 with a Partner should work, sharing the kit and such.

If you have a low base weight then you should be fine.

As far as suggestions Osprey's carry very well, Black Diamond's are beast(Quantum 55), Golite & Granite Gear may fit with your very light mantra.

My other pack is an Arcteryx Acrux which is 70-80 liters so I was looking for something smaller for day and weekend trips. After a lot of research I decided on the Eiger 48. What an awesome pack. Streamlined design but still has a lot of very cool and usable features, whether you are in the mountains or hiking through the woods this is a great all around pack. I mean except for the lid being fixed and that there is not a feature specifically designed to hold a shovel I can't find a reason to complain. Very solid, very practical. It is all you ever hoped for in a pack.

u think i could fit a sleeping bag in tent in stuff for over niters

Responded on

You sure could. I would recommend strapping the tent to the outside, that is usually a lot more useful in terms of utilizing all of inside space.

Responded on

Yes, I've done over-nighters with bags smaller than this. As long as you pack relatively light, you can easily get away with it.
