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.

Excellent Ultralight Durable Pack and Comfortable!
What a difference a pack can make on difficult climbs. The Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Southwest is not just tough enough for the rocky canyons of the American Southwest its named after, it can handle the White Mountains in winter. Forget the bells and whistles, this pack doesn't need them to perform flawlessly.

Astonishingly simple

Simplicity is always a good thing and my Southwest 2400 is as simple as they come, I love it. By some sort of magic it fits me much better than my other expensive pack which has a plethora of straps, zippers, load lifters, compartments and buckles and is “fully adjustable”, ha! Thus far I have only used my Southwest on short desert 6-8 mile overnight trips carrying a 20-25 pound load, once I had to haul close to 38 pounds and the Southwest performed perfectly every time. It’s an expensive pack but I think it’s well worth the price if you backpack a lot. Besides, you get what you pay for - this is an extremely well designed and built pack that can comfortably swallow and carry a surprising amount of gear. On the shoulder straps I have the HMG bottle pocket which is excellent for a 700 ml bottle and the HMG shoulder pocket. The shoulder pocket’s outer mesh sleeve is barely wide enough to hold my smaller iPhone 13 which is 2-6/8” or 6.8 cm wide with a thin silicone cover on it. I have a suggestion for HMG. The shoulder strap daisy chains would be much more practical and versatile if the individual ladder sections were shorter, thus providing more options on where to mount the pockets or other gear. I am very satisfied with my Southwest 2400 and should have invested in it some years ago, but better late than never.

Bomber UL backpack!

This bag is a game changer when it comes to UL traveling in the backcountry! I love how bomber the material is and that it is water resistant. No need to worry about a pack cover. The pack's room capacity is surprisingly big for a 40L. I feel like I'm not even wearing a backpack sometimes! 10/10 would recommend and looking forward to using it on a future thru-hike!

It would be neat to have a pouch on the bottom of the bag for quick access to snacks. Also, I wish the belt straps were situated the other direction so you could pull them towards yourself instead of away. I think it would make it easier to tighten the bag to your hips/waist.

I'm 5'2" and the small fits my torso perfectly.
