    Ultralight and ultra-reliable.

    Hyperlite Mountain Gear's 2400 Windrider 40L Backpack weighs barely over a pound, yet still has a enough capacity for minimalist overnighters. Despite its ultralight weight, the Windrider is surprisingly comfortable and durable 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 Windrider also has a roll-top closure and taped seams for reliable protection in wet weather. There's an internal sleeve styled for hydration reservoirs, and a loop designed for ice axes. The Windrider also has external mesh pockets, zippered waist belt pockets for valuables, and top and side compression straps for a secure load.

    Lightweight, versatile, and well-built

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My dad introduced me to Hyperlite four or five years ago. He picked up one of the first iterations of the Windrider, and would proudly extol the benefits of Dyneema packs to anyone willing to listen.
    At the time, my mom thought the pack looked a bit like a trash bag, and, I probably wouldn’t have bothered to learn more about ‘dad’s wonder pack’ had he not seized every opportunity to remind me of how much lighter it was than the Osprey that I was lugging around.
    To his credit, he was absolutely right.
    Hyperlite’s bags are the lightest, most durable, and most comfortable packs on the market.
    Dyneema boasts a strength to weight ratio that is nearly 15 times that of steel, and the frame supporting the high-tech-trash bag equalizes/distributes weight better than any other pack I’ve worn.

    not a single complaint

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Simple; superlight; durable; waterproof. This was my pal for numerous training hikes and then an 7 night adventure in the Smoky Mountains. When I crammed 32+ lbs in it the lack of structure started to have a comfort impact. If you are committed to getting light, this will work with/for you.
