4400 Southwest

From $425.00

SKU: 3-10270-1

Our preferred pack for backpacking in dense, heavily wooded trails in the roughest, toughest climates.

70L PACK, IDEAL FOR

  • Backpacking

OUR CLOSE QUARTERS TRAIL PACK

If you’ve got a four-season trail habit, the 4400 Southwest has the volume needed for cold weather gear, food and fuel for a week, or additional travel tools like a packraft. Ideal for weekend, section, or thru hikes where resupply points are less frequent and/or bulkier equipment is required.

When the route is thick with vegetation, requires the occasional up and over immovable objects, and calls for “suck in your gut and shimmy through” type moves, the Southwest is the backpack you want up-close and personal. This pack family is made specifically for tough adventures that would rip most other ultralight-style packs to shreds.

    Crazy Light
    I knew this would be light but was still blown away. You could easily fit 7-10 days worth and still have room to spare. Also really like the Velcro enclosure for added security. Upgraded from an old pack and I’m never looking back.

    Same Great Quality
    These packs never disappoint me. The balance of weight and functionality are unrivaled. I have used a lot of packs over the years and always use my Hyperlite packs as the measure of quality.

    Rear pack

    Super light compared to my osprey atmos 65 and mystery ranch bridger 65, comfortable to wear and has plenty of room for the size gear I have. The pack feels like its constructed well and feels durable

    Does everything pack.

    I took my southwest 4400 touring into a mountain hut. The pack handed all my gear. On day trip from the hut it held my avalanche gear in more of a day of pack size as you just roll down the top to the desired size. Waist belt pockets are awesome for snacks. My wife borrowed the pack and liked that she could find stump in the pack as the white version lets light in. Pack does force you to be organized as it only has one in/out. The outside pockets are great for when layers need to come off and you don’t want to access the main compartment.
