    Weeks in the desert.

    Spend a week trekking around the desert with all the camping gear you need tucked into Hyperlight Mountain Gear's ultralight 4400 Southwest Backpack. 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, back panel, 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 many seasons to come. 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 trail essentials, and top and side compression straps for a secure load.

    Awesome pack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've only taken this pack on one 3.5 day 68.3 mile back packing trip so far. But it was great! Very lightweight, and well made. It fits me very well and was very comfortable with a 28lbs starting pack weight. Im very impressed with the water resistance of the matterial. Had some hard rain on my second day and everything stayed dry. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in an ultra light pack!

    Versatile pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I went with this size because the extra ounces are worth the versatility. I've used this pack on over-night trips in the San Juans (see picture) and week long through hikes in Hell's Canyon. This pack is minimalist, but still has all the necessary bells and whistles (tie downs, great external pockets, torso strap) that I'm not willing to sacrifice. I'm 6' tall, but I have a relatively small torso. I have a medium pack.
