So Light - So Comfortable
Great pack, extremely light for its size. So nice to have the room for anything but not the added weight, rolls and cinches down for small loads while having the capability to go big whenever needed! Really comfortable on the back!

Awesome Pack!
Feather light, sure, but also super tough, plenty big, and comfortable on my shoulders. I should have bought this pack, and the pods, years ago.

Simply Clever
Great gear! All I need with minimum weight. That‘s exactly what I was looking for. Several days in the Swiss alps, carrying all my personal staff and food, was fun with the NorthRim.

Awesome pack

This pack is great. I have had 60+ pounds in it and it still maintains good comfort and stability. The outside pocket I do not think I will ever have an issue with wearing out. You can easily rig a brain onto this pack, which makes it that much more enjoyable. Impossible to regret the purchase, and I will feel the same about the next one I am sure.

A bush whacking machine!

I work off track in New Zealand for 30 days at a time and this pack holds up!

The forest in New Zealand is incredibly rough on gear so I opted for the North Rim for its durability but also its generous outer pockets which I love so much.

I can store my sandals, jacket, snacks eyc in the big pocket and heaos of water in the sides. The top rolls down enough that this pack can be used as a 'Carry On' on flights then extended up again when I need it to be. It's also insanely comfortable for such a simple pack. I'm a petite woman of 164cm and wear a Medium. I can carry 20kg happily.

The only improvement would be slightly wider cumfier shoulder straps with pockets up high for phone or camera. All in all an incredible and versitile pack that stands up to abuse!

Thanks Hyperlite!!!

Love this pack!

I look forward to every opportunity to put this pack on and carry it around, which is an urge I have never experienced previously. I bought the NorthRim 70 after trying out a friend's and doing a bit of research to confirm it is the one for me. It is super comfortable and I love the hip pockets. No complaints yet.

Fantastic pack

So far, so good. I've only been packing it around with weight to test it out, but it puts enough weight on the hips to be satisfied with it.

Good Work HME!

Beautifully designed and built.

My measurements would indicate a medium pack size (18" from C7 to iliac), but the large seemed to sit a little better on my hips. I prefer 90+% of a packs weight to be on my hips. With the medium frame size, more weight was on my shoulders than I prefer. The exchange from the medium to the large was very quick and easy. Try the pack, if it doesn't fit well, exchange it for another size. HME makes it really easy to do that as long as the pack is clean and in new condition.
