OUR WINTER ENDEAVORS PACK

The Ice Pack 55 is the pack to grab for multi-day Winter excursions, where volume flexibility for extra food and clothing is a critical ingredient to your success. When the extra volume is not in use, the 55’s top can roll down enough to make the overall size of the pack similar to the 40, but that additional space can come in pretty handy when you need it.

For the approach, the climb, and the descent, our Ice Pack is that perfect companion that’s never in the way, yet always right there when needed. Whether the day is spent on cliffs or mountains, concentrate on the climb without the distraction of cumbersome equipment.

    Great Bare Bones Pack
    I'm not into all the frills of some of the other packs out there. This pack has exactly what it needs and nothing more. Super light!

    Best Ice Pack Ever!!!
    Received this pack for my birthday, and just in time for my trip to Ouray. The pack worked flawlessly, both in the Ice Park and in the backcountry. The pack fits wonderfully, and was without unanticipated restrictions. My partner was really impressed. Looks like he'll be getting one soon.

    Favorite "Go To" Alpine Pack
    I've been using the 3400 Ice Pack for three Winter Seasons now and it's hands down my favorite Ice/Alpine pack. I was an initial hard-sell on roll-top packs, I like my separate storage, however this pack has completely converted me. It's been with me on multiple continents and has held up far better than many of my other packs, even though it's a "light-weight" pack. Well done Hyperlite....

    Rainier

    Pretty awesome. Love the minimal aspect. Carried picket, rope, and 30lbs of other stuff on rainier well. Went with it to be able to use as a super light day pack and it’ll be awesome when the New England ice comes in. 1 star off for the bungee. It’s ok but seems overly thick for crampons.

    Worse than I remembered

    I used a Hyperlite Windrider on a few thru-hikes 2016-2018 and I didn't love it, but the fact that I could use it on more than one thru-hike indicates a measure of durability. This is clearly not the case with their bags anymore. It still carries horribly and after a 6 day ski trip, there are so many holes in the side of my brand new bag.

    I got holes on the the bottom of my old bag from general wear and tear, but these holes doesn't even make sense. I was either skiing, skinning, or carrying my skis A-frame in a way that should have covered the place that developed holes, so I really don't get it. The only option is that some tree branches snagged while schwacking, and if this $400 bag can't even withstand some tree branches then what's even the point?

    I'd hoped to use this bag packrafting as well but with all these holes it's pretty much only good as an overpriced drag bag. Order your Alpine Luddites bag now so you'll have it by next season.

    Fast n Light!

    Bought this pack for 2-3day alpine pursuits this climbing season. After a shakedown this has replaced 2of my other packs….extremely versatile if you like moving fast and have flexibility for 1-3+ day pursuits.

    Hyperlite 3400 Ice Pack

    The best thing about this pack is the crampon attachment. I have used this pack for everything, hiking, climbing, mountaineering, backpacking. The ice tool spots are nice too. The gear loop option is helpful when your harness is full or the hip belt might be in the way of your gear. The pack is very light weight and after about 20 miles it does get a little uncomfortable when fully loaded but that is to be expected for such a "minimal" pack. It's also pretty hard to get a water bladder into it, so I just use a water bottle. But this pack is very nice for what it's intended for, Ice climbing. Easy access to your essential gear. It also has a pretty good pocket on the inside for your other things (headlamp, lighter, bandaids, water purification, fire starter, T.P, ect.) it's roll top so getting inside for other things can be a pain sometimes but it's worth the weight reduction. It's also waterproof, I've never had any gear get wet. And the dyneema is very strong, I've slammed it on rocks and the ground and it has never ripped when a normal pack probably would. I've been able to get all the gear I need into this pack even for multiple day trips. Including a camera. Overall, a very nice pack and a great option to have in the stash.
