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.

So light and comfortable!

I am heading to the Smokies this Thursday for a 4 day backpacking trip and needed something lighter than my current pack, which was 5#. My daughter had purchased one and really liked it, so I got one also. I have it packed to about 18# and have been taking some hikes to try it out and get a little conditioning in. It is so compact and love not having a lot of pockets for my stuff to get lost in. I still have room for additional gear that I need to carry for the group. I did rig up a way to have a water flask attached to the shoulder strap so I could drink hands free. That would be a great add on for the company to consider as it is hard to reach a bottle and return it in the back/side pocket.

Excellent pack for 2-3 night backcountry travels

This pack performs great in the backcountry, never once had to worry about my gear getting wet in a downpour. Very strong material, was made fun of because it looked rippable and weak but out performed everyone elses heavy packs! thank you hyperlite

Best Pack

I love the way this pack fits and carries the weight. The black and white combo looks sweeeet. Took it on Vermont's Long Trail and about to take it on the PCT. The only thing I don't like is the velcro closure at the opening of the pack, it catches on every little thing and snags gear. I removed it and added snaps. Now it's perf.

Outstanding piece of kit

I have the heavy duty black fabric, I’m really glad I was able to find it in the heavy build. I’m sure the lighter fabric is great too. I have used it primarily for ski touring, and made a few personal tweaks to really dial it in, more on that in a minute. The build quality is great, fabric is tough and fully waterproof which is huge here in the WA Cascades. I love having two belt pockets. The roll top with y-strap is a elegantly simple closure that allows for extras on top if needed. I’m also glad the pack has aluminum frame stays, which make it more stable when loaded than a foam framesheet alone. The mesh pocket inside is perfect for shovel handle, avalanche probe and saw, and I use a hydration bladder occasionally so the tube port is useful.

Changes I made:

I sewed on some webbing tabs to the roll top to make it easier to open with gloves on.

I removed the large center pocket and sewed on vertical daisy chains and axe holsters.

I slightly changed the attachments of the compression straps and added heavier webbing.

After sewing I retaped the stitches from the inside.

I was going to buy a Porter, but I found this pack second hand and decided to do the modifications for carrying skis and tools. Having the side pockets plus the belt pockets is incredible, I can stash gloves and food in there and access it on the move. I’ll eventually be getting a 4400 Porter for bigger outings, and will miss the side pockets, mesh internal pocket, and hydration port.

Great pack, it’s very…
