OUR ORIGINAL BACKPACKING PACK

The 2400 Windrider is the pack that super-efficient thru hikers and backpackers graduate down to when their kits are dialed, and the calories and fuel they need along the way are never too hard to find. Ideal for weekend or section hikes where frequent resupply points are available.

There’s a kind of classic image that comes to mind when you hear the word “hiking.” Dense green and brown forests with meandering rugged root-strewn trails lead to awe-inspiring hill and mountain panoramas, and rivers and streams lull tired explorers to sleep at the end or strenuous but rewarding days. These are the environments where the Windrider takes flight.

IDEAL USES
  • DURATION

    1-4 Days

  • TERRAIN

Blown Away

So I have had this bag for almost three years now and it has NEVER given me problems. I thru hiked over 3000 miles with it and the condition it has stayed in is absolutely mind blowing. Yes it’s an expensive bag but ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY. I recently just got a new one and the reason is because the stitching is finally going at the shoulders. Took three years to do that! I’m impressed. Even more impressed at the customer service I received when ordering a new bag. I’m currently thru hiking right now and needed a new bag pronto and HMG sent one on the same day and for free!! I’m not saying this happens all the time but it shows they are a company who cares about their customers and will do anything to satisfy. Do yourself a favor and buy a bag that is gonna last you a couple thru hikes and support a company who supports you.

The best backpack you've come to expect!

I've always wanted it, but I finally got it this time. By using the hardness of the main body, it becomes easier to get used to and use. It is an item that you want to use for a long time.

My favorite pack

Loved the frameless back and how lightweight the pack is. Bought the first one for my girlfriend because she is always complaining about packs hurting her shoulders but after trying it out myself I had to order a second one.

Perfect for those perpetually wet environments

This is as well made and light weight as all the Hyperlite gear, but the 'dry bag' closure for the top makes this perfect for those wet environments that seem to crush other products.
