Hyperlite is known for its iconic ultralight backpacks. They are built in Maine and designed for backpacking, the high alpine, adventure racing, paddling, and more. Since they are made of Dyneema, all the packs are waterproof and can take a beating. The Windrider 2400 in particular (40L), is a good size weekend adventures.
Beyond the spacious main compartment, three external mesh pockets offer a place to stash gear you want to have on hand throughout the day or to dry out clothes. As a bonus, it comes in both black and the classic white color. Which will you choose?
