      Great pack

      I absolutely love this pack. I own the 3400, it was not quite big enough for this hike with all my winter gear. The 4400 exceeded my expectations.

      Ends all debates about best pack.

      This pack (Windrider 4400) is amazing. It blows away all 3 of my previous long range packs...it's not even close. The weight alone savings is the main thing, but when you add in the water proof capability all debate ends. I have used this pack in extreme cold and it met and exceeded my expectations.

      Chicago Basin 37.6mi Trip

      I recently purchased the 4400 Windrider Pack directly from Hyperlite. I bought this pack to replace my old Kelty pack. I took my first climbing/backpacking trip with 4400 Windrider recently to Chicago Basin, Colorado. Due to COVID-19 the normal train route was closed making a normally 14mi hike into an aprox 37.7mi hike. First my impressions of the pack. The pack is extremely well made with not a hint of shoddy craftmanship. Each seam is well stitched - triple stitched and tape seamed. The Dyneema fabric is just simply bullet proof. The fabric will no doubt hold up to the point of a lifetime worth of a abuse I would say. Dyneema is so indestructible that I believe no amount of rock abrasion and abuse of the pack will put a dent into the Dyneema fabric. Further, I don't even see how Dyneema could be torn or become frayed period - its that tough. Every part of the pack exudes the evidence of real world testing before public release of the product. This is a pack well engineered by real world use, but with careful attention taken to keep the pack as light as possible - maybe too light read below. The quality craftmanship of the pack is evidence of this. One can tell that every detail of the pack is not only well crafted, but well tested. POSTIVES: In addition to the craftmanship of the pack, I found that the lumbar support and hip belt systems were exactly matched to my back's natural contour. The fit of the lumbar and belt system is so well done that I didn't even need to use…

      Value for money

      Well worth the investment. Carries the weight easily, running on 15kg for now.

      Worth the investment

      Finally replaced my 10 year old Kelty with this beast. Used it to summit Gannet Peak in Wyoming via the glacier trail.

      I was skeptical of the barebones suspension when I first got it but it remained comfortable for the entire 50 mile trip. Easily held all my gear including, helmet, crampons, ice axe, 5 days of food, etc.

      I also used it as a summit pack with just a few items in it, it rolls down very well to a smaller size.

      Only wish I would have gotten more than two pods.
