    Details

    Styled for sandstone.

    Hike down dry river beds, bushwhack through scrub, and explore slot canyons with Hyperlite Mountain Gear's ultralight 2400 Southwest 40L Backpack storing everything you need for a minimalist overnighter. Despite its ultralight weight, the Southwest is surprisingly comfortable and durable enough for long hikes. Its Dyneema Hardline suspension system includes spacer mesh foam at the shoulder straps and waist belt, and there are supportive aluminum stays that you can remove for even less weight.

    Hyperlite Mountain Gear made this pack out of the same Dyneema rope fabric used to catch climbers when they fall, so you know it will last for seasons. The Southwest also has a roll-top closure and taped seams for reliable protection in wet weather. There's an internal sleeve styled for hydration reservoirs (not included), and a loop designed for ice axes. The Southwest also has external, snag-free pockets, zippered waist belt pockets for valuables, and top and side compression straps for a secure load.

    Versatile but loud

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Excellent build quality, great versatility--outside pocket is actually large enough to be useful, waistband pockets also functional (unlike some which are useless once the strap is cinched tight). Exceptionally lightweight, and good size for travelling (small enough to be carry-on luggage for international flights).
    My only complaint is that it's noisy--the roll-top closure has a velcro closure at the opening, so every time you open the pack you get the velcro detaching noise. Unsuitable for red-eye flights, wildlife photography, or anywhere else you want to be quiet. The Dyneema itself is a little "crinkly" noisy, but not nearly as bad as the velcro.

    Ultimate packs for, everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    HMG packs are incredibly lightweight and durable. I've never had a pack stand up to so much abuse. The 2400 series is the perfect size for skiing/snowboarding/backpacking/hiking/bikepacking/you name it. The most versatile backpacks i have ever used!
