4400 Southwest

$390.00 $312.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 146 reviews
Our preferred pack for backpacking in dense, heavily wooded trails in the roughest, toughest climates.
OUR CLOSE QUARTERS TRAIL PACK

If you’ve got a four-season trail habit, the 4400 Southwest has the volume needed for cold weather gear, food and fuel for a week, or additional travel tools like a packraft. Ideal for weekend, section, or thru hikes where resupply points are less frequent and/or bulkier equipment is required.

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.

    The one

    I never believed i could get so excited about a backpack. It truly is amazing. The comfort, the weight handling, the huge side and back pockets, the weight of the pack….the fit to my back…its just perfect!!! I have been in several hikes with it since it arrived to me in Berlin, Germany…and everyday im just looking at it and thinking of my next adventure with it.

    But not only weekend hikes…i have a few longer hikes planned for 2022, one of them in Norway. I truly cannot wait.

    My Southwest 4400 and I will have many km of stories to tell.

    As its a roll top I went for the larger version to be safe if future hikes needed more load space.

    Thanks HMG for this great product.

    durable, versatile, and comfortable (and lightweight)

    I am not into ultralight backpacking equipment because of durability issues, in addition to comfort. The 4400 Southwest backpack was recommended by an avid backpacking friend because of its durability, versatility, and comfort, perhaps more durable than any backpack he has ever owned. With my now one backpack trip using the 4400 Southwest, I can only agree with my friends assessment. Versatility includes using this pack as a day pack, as well as for a week plus backpack. I'm impressed.
