We channeled Edward Abbey when we designed our best-selling Southwest Pack. Made for desert rats, Alaskan adventurers or any hardcore explorer who spends time in inhospitable environments, this pack is bombproof, foolproof and made of 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabrics (formerly Cuben Fiber). We designed it to function perfectly and become a seamless extension of the individuals who use it. It’s ultralight and ultra-durable, and made of 100% waterproof, ripstop Dyneema® Composite Fabrics (formerly Cuben Fiber).
SectionHiker.com calls our 3400 Southwest, “a bomber multi-day backpack geared for tough adventures that will rip most other ultralight-style pack to shreds. If you’re rough on backpacks, but still want one that only weighs two pounds, the 3400 Southwest pack probably has your name on it."
Thru hiker Cam “Swami” Honan used the Southwest on his recent traverse of Tasmania. “The southwest 2400 pack performed very well through the harshest of conditions. On multiple days the bushwhacking was so bad I could only manage about three miles over the course of an entire hiking day. In some two and a half decades (and 55,000 miles) of doing this sort of stuff around the globe, I can't think of a sterner test for a backpack.”
