Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s 3400 Southwest

When exploring new trails this summer, the last thing you want is clunky and heavy gear weighing you down. Lighten up your load and tackle every hike on your wish list with the 3400 Southwest pack from Hyperlite Mountain Gear. With a 55L capacity and weighing just 2 lbs, this pack can house all the gear you need with no harm to your back. It's large enough for even the most demanding thru-hikes, but can also be rolled down for your shorter excursions — it's the only pack you need.

High Tech

Thanks to the futuristic Dyneema fabric it's made from, as well as its no-frills design, the 3400 Southwest pack offers everything you need and nothing you don't. Dyneema is not only strong and lightweight, but the fabric is also waterproof — keeping your gear dry even during mother nature's worst.


The spacious Hardline with Dyneema exterior center pocket (as well as the side pockets of the same material) offers a robust shield for the gear stashed inside. You can focus on your trek knowing your valuables are safe.


The roll-top of the pack allows you to customize its size, making it the pick for your day-, weekend- and week-long excursions. Plus, add in Hyperlite Mountain Gear's Pods and Stuff Sacks for the ultimate organized kit.

Price: $355
