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.

    My Go To Pack for Camping and Backpacking
    I love this thing! For how minimalist it is, it is very comfortable and the perfect size for the trips I take. I've done 20+ mile days in the mountains of Montana loaded with around 30lbs and have no complaints. Definitely recommend!

    Comfy and Oh So Light!!
    My friend convinced me to buy this bag based on the lightweight feature. It took a little convincing as it's just changing your mindset to a giant stuff sack vs a pack with a million pockets and features - that ultimately add weight! Used it for the first time on a 5 day backpack and fell in love. I honestly had MANY people ask me during that trip about the pack - I raved about it. Thank you!

    Perfection
    I love my Windrider. The pack is comfortable, durable, and lightweight. The mesh is surprisingly durable and convenient. On top of loving my pack, Hyperlite went above and beyond in making sure my order arrived in time for my planned weekend excursion.

    Great lightweight pack.

    I really like the weight and durability of this pack. It would be great to have more up front pockets to be able to reach food, gear. It also sits on a previously broken collar bone a bit painfully which I can't adjust as there is little room to adjust the top strap. It would be good to be able to slide this strap up and down a bit more and cinch it in a bit tighter.

    Ultra-lite but tough enough for bishwhacking

    Dyneema makes this both an ultra-lte, water proof / resistant and durable pack. While bushwhacking is rarely built into my hiking plans, I feel confident this pack would hold up to the abuse if I needed to.
