Why We Like It

Achieving fluid motion takes more than counting ounces. The just-launched ultralight Octal 45 combines weight-saving design with exceptional fit and load management to give you a low base pack weight along with mileage-crushing efficiency. Thoughtful trail features, a comfortable carry, and a custom fitted rain cover (see the top pocket) let you focus on the journey, not your backpack.

Features

We think an ultralight pack with proper support and essential features provides a better experience—more efficient and much more enjoyable—than hyper-minimalist stuff sack with zero structure. The difference shows the morning after a 15-mile day, when the Octal 45 proves that comfort is one trail essential you can’t live without.
