DAY IN, DAY OUT. THIS IS THE PACK FOR THE LONGEST TRAILS

There is simply no better way to measure the effectiveness of a pack design than to send it out on thru hikes. Over the course of 2,000+ miles and an average of five to six months, day in, day out, loaded, unloaded, jostled, dragged, exposed to water, sweat, sun, and dirt, one of these long walks is going to tell you the truth. So, that’s what we went after, and the Unbound 40 is the honest to goodness result. Every carefully considered feature fought for its right to remain, leaving only the essentials required for an efficient, comfortable, adaptable, and dependable travel companion. Thru hiking is hard enough. Let the Unbound 40 carry some of the weight.

Best Ultralight backpack I’ve used.

I was a little skeptical of how well this would carry the weight of my gear only having one frame stay, but much to my amazement it carried it the best out of every ultralight backpack I’ve used. Also impressed with how comfortably it sat on my back. The unbound 40 is hands down the most comfortable ultralight backpack I have used. Another thing I really liked was how durable the back and bottom pockets are, they are also tight enough to keep everything in them close to the rest of the pack but not so tight you can’t fit anything in them. You could actually put quite a bit it the outside pockets. One thing that I did find to be a slight issue, the hip belt straps would slip loose after tightening them to where I needed it to adjust to. But I just tightened it to where I wanted then with the excess straps tied two over hand knots and it worked wonderful after that. If I had pick one pack to use for the rest of my life this would be it. I would highly recommend anyone to give this pack a try.
