Best For: The Black Diamond Pulse is best for female day hikers and scramblers who prefer a streamlined, nimble pack.

With a women’s-specific design, the Black Diamond Pulse is made for women looking for an active, technical pack for hiking, scrambling, or other fast-moving pursuits.

The Pulse features a women’s-specific hipbelt and shoulder straps for a better female fit, and Black Diamond’s reACTIV suspension with an OpenAir backpanel lets those straps and hipbelt move with you for less friction.

Access your gear inside the 20-liter Pulse through a zippered front panel, or stow essentials, like a hardshell, in the front stash pocket for quick access.

The Pulse pack is hydration-compatible for drinking on the go. And, while compact, its features include loops for stowing your ice axes or trekking poles, a stash pocket on the hipbelt for snacks and small essentials, and side stretch pockets.

The Pulse is available in two sizes: Small (20 liters / 1,220 cu in and 860 g / 1 lb 14 oz) and Medium (22 liters / 1,340 cu in and 920 g / 2 lb). It’s made from 210d nylon ripstop and 400d nylon twill fabric.

Black Diamond's Nitro pack is the men’s equivalent.

Charge up the trail at full speed thanks to the lightweight Black Diamond Women's Pulse Backpack. This lightweight, streamlined, hydration-compatible pack carries the necessary gear for the day, and features Black Diamond's ultra-comfortable reActiv suspension system to provide optimum fit and comfort.


The Black Diamond Pulse pack offers a low-profile fit perfect for climbs and scrambles. reActive(TM) suspension with OpenAir back panel and soft, breathable 3D mesh on the hipbelt and shoulder straps offers robust support and comfort. SwingArm(TM) shoulder straps move in concert with a hiker's stride or a climber's reach by sliding through the bottom of the pack with a low-friction cable and housing. Shoulder straps are linked to the other by the cable which helps maintain an even, balanced load across the shoulders. Zippered front panel access makes it easy to pack and unpack your gear. Hipbelt pocket, front compression stretch pocket and side stretch pockets provide plenty of accessible storage options for water bottles, snacks and other essentials. Tool loops and compression straps accommodate trekking poles or an ice axe. Internal hydration sleeve holds a reservoir (not included) so you can hydrate on the go. The Black Diamond Pulse pack is constructed of 210-denier ripstop nylon and 400-denier nylon twill for excellent durability and weight savings. Closeout.
