4400 Southwest

$425.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 153 reviews
Our preferred pack for backpacking in dense, heavily wooded trails in the roughest, toughest climates.
OUR CLOSE QUARTERS TRAIL PACK

If you’ve got a four-season trail habit, the 4400 Southwest has the volume needed for cold weather gear, food and fuel for a week, or additional travel tools like a packraft. Ideal for weekend, section, or thru hikes where resupply points are less frequent and/or bulkier equipment is required.

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.

    Love it

    I love this pack. I am surprised that with limited options to fit this specific to my body, somehow or other the fit was just right. I just did a 6 Day, five night backpack and couldn’t have been happier with the feel of the pack. And even though it doesn’t have a “brain” I was able to figure out ways to organize everything that I didn’t miss it at all.

    Very minimal

    very light weight, waterproof, fits well, not a lot of bells and whistles but you don't or won't need them; throw away your 5-6lb osprey or gregory pack and go lite. You'll enjoy your hiking so much more. Only one small thing...I'm not that organized when I hike and this pack is basically one large chamber so be sure to buy plenty of color coded stuff sacks to keep yourself organized.

    Crazy Light

    I knew this would be light but was still blown away. You could easily fit 7-10 days worth and still have room to spare. Also really like the Velcro enclosure for added security. Upgraded from an old NF pack and I’m never looking back.

    Comfortable pack

    I didn't know a backpack could be comfortable, but this one is. I'm up to about 25 pounds in it as I train, and will be curious if it maxes out first, or I do.

    It was well fitted to my torso.
