2400 Windrider

Starting at $349.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 133 reviews
Our preferred pack for backpacking in open, wet and wooded trails.
OUR ORIGINAL BACKPACKING PACK

The 2400 Windrider is the pack that super-efficient thru hikers and backpackers graduate down to when their kits are dialed, and the calories and fuel they need along the way are never too hard to find. Ideal for weekend or section hikes where frequent resupply points are available.

There’s a kind of classic image that comes to mind when you hear the word “hiking.” Dense green and brown forests with meandering rugged root-strewn trails lead to awe-inspiring hill and mountain panoramas, and rivers and streams lull tired explorers to sleep at the end or strenuous but rewarding days. These are the environments where the Windrider takes flight.

Superb Pack

I purchased a Windrider not long after completing a thru-hike of the AT in 2014, having been impressed by what I heard from those carrying the pack on the trail. Since then I've carried the pack on climbing, backpacking, and paddling trips. The pack has held up extremely well, and it is reliably weather resistant. During my latest trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness it sat on the bottom of a canoe and kept my gear dry despite heavy rain and a partial submersion. There was some isolated, minor dampness near the bottom of the pack, which didn't compromise anything and which is fine by me considering the pack wasn't really designed for that use. I've never stopped being amazed by how light the pack is, and how well it carries. I would absolutely recommend this pack.

Hyperlite is great

So far, after only one 4-day hiking trip, I am very hapy with the pack.
