Why We Like The Speed 40L Backpack

Black Diamond's updated Speed 40L Backpack is here to give us featherweight performance that'll last. With new extra-tough material and a reinforced front, this pack stays light while holding strong as we push through rugged conditions. Whatever pursuit we get after, the strippable design—removable waist belt, lid, and framesheet—lets us mold this pack into what we need. As we test our grit on the mountain, the new back panel wicks away moisture, while the rebuilt, streamlined shoulder straps give improved load distribution for a comfortable carry.
