OUR ORIGINAL BACKPACKING PACK

The 3400 Windrider has made a name for itself as the ideal Appalachian Trail thru hiking pack with its massive mesh pockets that help to dry wet gear on the move, and its adaptable carrying capacity as supplies accumulate and dwindle along the route. Ideal for weekend, section, or thru hikes where resupply points are less frequent and/or for equipment 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.

    Puts my 'back' back into 'backpacking'! So comfortable....

    I am returning to backpacking as a mom with my 17-year-old son. As an older hiker with some back issues (scoliosis), I have had problems with frame packs in the past. The fit of this pack, along with its lightweight, allowed me to return to backpacking after many years. We section hiked the Appalachian Trail this Fall, and I had ZERO issues with back and neck pain while carrying about 17-20 pounds of gear. The straps are in the right places; I ordered a small pack and am a petite 5'4" frame. For females, the top strap is well positioned on your chest. It is durable and effortless to pack and load. The outside pouches are easily accessible, and I highly recommend the waist pockets for holding your phone, lip balm, a small snack, or whatever you need quick access to while on the trail. The wide top makes it easy to rearrange your load or access your gear without having to dig around blindly. I would have returned to the trail much sooner if I had known this pack existed! The way it sits on my back allows me to arrange my gear inside to conform with my spine's contours, if that makes sense! Thank you, Hyperlite, for creating memories with my family

    Great Pack

    So far I’ve only done a handful of training hikes with my pack, but it’s awesome in every way. It is definitely light weight. I’m coming from a 7lb back so this thing is like hiking with air. I’ve filed it up with 30lbs of gear and it rides great. The pack is able to be adjusted to put the carrier weight right where you want it. Really looking forward to some longer distances with my new pack.
