Minimize your weekend warrior adventures by hiking the desert with all your camping gear in Hyperlite Mountain Gear's 3400 Southwest Backpack. Despite its ultralight weight, the Southwest is surprisingly comfortable and durable enough for long hikes. Its Dyneema Hardline suspension system includes spacer mesh foam at the shoulder straps and waist belt, and there are supportive aluminum stays that you can remove for even less weight. Hyperlite Mountain Gear made this pack out of the same Dyneema rope fabric used to catch climbers when they fall, so you know it will last for seasons. The Southwest also has a roll-top closure and taped seams for reliable protection in wet weather. There's an internal sleeve styled for hydration reservoirs (not included), and a loop designed for ice axes. The Southwest also has external, snag-free pockets, zippered waist belt pockets for valuables, and top and side compression straps for a secure load.
The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Southwest 3400 is ultralight, watertight, comfortable, gigantic, and can carry up to 40 pounds. As the kids would say: just plain dope.Read Full Gear Review
