2400 Southwest

Starting at $320.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 179 reviews
Our preferred pack for backpacking in dense, heavily wooded trails in the roughest, toughest climates.
OUR CLOSE QUARTERS TRAIL PACK

The 2400 Southwest keeps you honest about packing smart and efficiently on weekend or section hikes where the supplies you may need to replace along the way are never too far out of reach. 

When the route is thick with vegetation, requires the occasional up and over immovable objects, and calls for “suck in your gut and shimmy through” type moves, the Southwest is the backpack you want up-close and personal. This pack family is made specifically for tough adventures that would rip most other ultralight-style packs to shreds.

Fabulous pack!

I absolute love this pack! This is my first Hyperlite and I am in love! I bought this primarily for multi-day use, but am now planning on using it for snowshoeing this winter (thanks to its waterproof quality), and also for my longer day hikes, simply because of how comfortable it is regardless of how much gear you toss in!

I saw a previous review (a rather insulting one) from a pompous reviewer who stated those who only plan to hike shorter distances should “stick with their Ospreys”. I say, forget that jerk. Use whatever pack suits you and your needs best, and whichever one you find the most comfortable! This is a very versatile pack! Not only is there a good amount of compartment space, there are a lot of options for attaching gear to the outside of the pack as well. That being said, this pack also compresses down quite nicely for those times when you don’t have 40+ pounds to haul, yet you want to carry a lighter backpack.

I am excited to put many miles of outdoor happiness into this pack!

Great Design

Hyperlite packs show the amount of thought and experience that goes into their design and construction. Their simplicity is part of their success, but the little details are just as valuable. And no 'convenient' lengthwise zipper to bust - thank you. I'm really impressed, can't wait to try it out!

Great Backpack!

This is a great backpack for the following reasons: First is simplicity. It’s just the basics. There’s not a lot of extra straps hanging all over the place. I’m a firm believer that simpler is better. Second, it’s very well made and the dyneema material seems like it will take a lot of abuse, although I’m easy on my gear, so it should last a very long time. Third, it’s very comfortable and carries well and fourth, with the dyneema pods, I’m very confident my gear won’t get wet. I have other Hyperlite backpacks and they’ve never let me down. What’s not to like?

Best Backpack I Have Owned

I started off with an Osprey 38L and that think felt like I was carrying a person on my back. The 2400 is super light, well designed, and I really enjoy how it feels to carry. I will be adding some extra shoulder padding, but I am still extremely happy with this backpack!!

I used this pack on a 4 day trip in the sawtooths. 35 miles, 5000ft elevation gain, and about 25lbs packed (including food and water). This thing has absolutely no wear on it following it’s first trip and I’m excited to use it again !
