Our 55-liter hiking packs are designed to help you hike, climb, packraft, and bike more efficiently, with less fatigue and pain, using gear that is so light and simple it becomes an afterthought. Our award-winning made-in-the-USA backpacks are all built with virtually waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabrics and rigorously tested by some of the most acclaimed explorers in the world.

The 3400 volume size is ideal for weekend, section, or thru hikes where resupply points are less frequent, or for a trip that needs flexibility. When the extra volume is not in use, the 3400’s top can roll down enough to make the overall size of the pack similar to the 2400, but that additional space can come in pretty handy when you need it.

The Windrider’s mesh pockets make it an excellent choice for quickly finding gear you’ll want to access throughout the day, or to dry wet gear as you hike. Choose the Southwest for added abrasion protection in rockier environments where scrambling, bouldering, or navigating narrow crevasses are likely, or you just want to keep pocket contents hidden. Both of our packs are also great for travel. Click on a backpack below to get more details on each 55L pack in our line.
