2400 Southwest

Starting at $349.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 202 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.

Bomber UL backpack!

This bag is a game changer when it comes to UL traveling in the backcountry! I love how bomber the material is and that it is water resistant. No need to worry about a pack cover. The pack's room capacity is surprisingly big for a 40L. I feel like I'm not even wearing a backpack sometimes! 10/10 would recommend and looking forward to using it on a future thru-hike!

It would be neat to have a pouch on the bottom of the bag for quick access to snacks. Also, I wish the belt straps were situated the other direction so you could pull them towards yourself instead of away. I think it would make it easier to tighten the bag to your hips/waist.

I'm 5'2" and the small fits my torso perfectly.

Top Notch Pack

Picked up this 2400 Southwest for the majority of trips here in California. It’s perfect for stretches along the PCT/HST/JMT and what I love about this pack is its availing to haul loads comfortably without fear of overloading it. I’ve used Hyperlite packs exclusively the past few years and haven’t looked anywhere else.

Perfect....

This is my second pack from HMG. I have worn many packs as a thru hiker and for me there are no others that feel amazing right out of the box.

Thanks for making awesome packs and accessories!!
