The comPACKtor™ system makes your pack far more versatile by enabling you to reduce your pack's volume through the use of two fixed compression anchor clips and adjustable side compression straps. With the comPACKtor™ system engaged, your pack is instantly transformed from a lightweight multi-day carrying system into a day-tripper or peak-bagger with smaller profile and volume.

Dyneema® The fabric of choice for our standard-setting UltraLite Series packs, our exclusive Dyneema® Gridstop weave combines 100% nylon base yarn with Dyneema fibers to deliver the strongest, lightest, performance pack fabric ever produced. Dyneema fibers have a strength-to-weight ratio that is 15 times better than high tensile steel, making this fabric incredibly difficult to tear.

What a difference
The adjustability on this pack really makes it easy to use. I am used to packs with a lot of little compartments. I love the compaktor system and the ability to use it for a day pack as well as on multiple day trips. The load lifters work as advertised. For the price how could you possibly beat this pack? GoLite represents significant value in the outdoor gear and clothing market. Keep up the quality GoLite!

Great quality, poor color choices
I ordered this pack and the quality was exactly what I expected. Lightweight, versatile, and strong. I had to return it though unfortunately. Just gotta ask, you call it a "unisex" pack, what's with the horrible colors? The only real acceptable color (for men) is the "grease" color. The other's are either female pack colors, or just outright obnoxious. Bring back the older style and color schemes. Love the 2010 packs.

I just finished the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail this past week with this pack and I cant stop talking about how awesome this pack is. The trip lasted 7 days and my pack weight was around 23 pounds with food and water. The entire time I was hiking I had to keep reminding myself that there was a pack on my back. The hip belt straps on this pack have to be one of the best designs I have seen on a pack. This is the first pack I have owned that I was able to put all the weight on my hips, which is one of the reasons the pack is so comfortable. If you are on the fence about this bag dont be, pick one up! You will love it!
