A variant of HMG’s award-winning Windrider pack, the 3400 Southwest is a 55 liter, 31.4 oz. (890 gram) pack featuring durable Spectra Hardline exterior pockets for adventurers who prefer solid exterior pockets instead of mesh.  Designed specifically to avoid snagging in the rough scrub brush and rock crags of the American southwest, this pack is ideal for the hiker, backpacker, or mountaineer needing additional pack volume.  With the extra volume, this 3400 cubic inch version becomes an ideal ultralight pack for thru-hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail or the Continental Divide Trail where re-supply opportunities are less frequent, or for winter adventurers who are carrying more gear.  The 3400 Southwest can also accommodate most bear canisters vertically.  

Constructed from our Cuben/50d Poly hybrid fabric, the 3400 Southwest is lightweight, durable and designed to ride on your back with extreme comfort.  The pack includes a roll-top closure, Y-strap top compression, four side compression straps, an internal mesh hydration sleeve, hydration port, removable internal aluminum stays, sternum strap, and the three external solid hardline pockets for ease of reaching supplies without having to open the pack.

New features for 2014 include fully sealed side seams for improved water resistance, a double-reinforced 150d pack bottom, re-designed hip-belt pockets for improved utility, and extended hip-belt length for better wrap around support and improved weight transfer capability from the shoulders to the hips.

Recommended carrying capacity range of the 3400 Southwest is 20-40lbs and as with all HMG packs, a rain cover is not required, however we highly recommend Cuben fiber stuff sacks to compartmentalize your gear and provide an added layer of water resistant security.
