Hyperlite Mountain Gear had hardcore alpinists in mind when he expanded their alpine backpack line to include a fully woven Dyneema®/Cuben Fiber hybrid version. Streamlined, minimalist and practically indestructible, this ultralight backpack is perfect for light and hard, fast alpine ascents—a 4000-foot new ice and mixed route in the Karakoram or a Teton’s Grand Traverse-style link up. Given a four-star review in Rock & Ice magazine’s 2013 Photo Annual issue, this pack offers exactly what you need and nothing more (i.e. no frills, gizmos or fancy “extras”).
The Dyneema® 2400 Ice Pack is made with fully woven Dyneema, the strongest material which HMG offer. This is most durable and abrasion resistant material.
Use this backpack with HMG stuff sacks for a nearly perfect waterproof kit.
