ULTRALIGHT BACKPACKS

Ultralight Backpacks

No matter how you travel outside, where you're traveling to, or what kind of adventure you've got in mind, the backpack is the piece of gear that unites us all. You can get into specifics about the best way to carry equipment for different pursuits, and luckily for you, we have.

UNBOUND

There is simply no better way to measure the effectiveness of a pack design than to send it out on thru hikes. Every carefully considered feature fought for its right to remain, leaving only the essentials required for an efficient, comfortable, adaptable, and dependable travel companion. Thru hiking is hard enough. Let the Unbound 40 carry some of the weight.

Born from and for the most transformative journeys, the Unbound 40 is built to go above and beyond the rigors of thru hiking.

IDEAL USES:

  • Thru Hiking
  • Established Long Trails
  • National Scenic Trails

The Southwest

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.
