Designed for the multi-sport user, the Bebop and Riff will accommodate a range of contents and uses, like fast hiking, mountain biking, travel, and other pack activities where light weight is a priority. The Bebop is made of lightweight 100 D siliconized Cordura with a heavier 210 D Cordura front pocket and bottom. It features a narrow compression-molded back panel, narrow padded shoulder straps, and removable webbing waist belt. The main compartment is accessed with an across-the-top zipper and includes an internal hydration pocket. The Bebop also includes a large front pocket, small top pocket, and two mesh side pockets.

This is one of the BEST packs I own. I have had my pack for years and used it for class, work, and play. From day hikes to overnight light hauls — this pack has been up 14ers and through some deep canyons at Arches NP.

Over and over again I have been impressed by this pack — especially how long it has lasted (considering how much I have put it through). Rain, snow, wind, sandstone walks of name it, this pack has seen it.

Some of my favorite features:

The front zip pocket is awesome! I stow my beanie, headlamp, gloves and journal for quick grab. 

The top zip pocket — seam sealed zipper (epic!) for my cell phone (of course in a water tight case, you can never really trust anything considered "waterproof") and a Luna bar or some other snacky treat.

Side compression straps — when I don't have water bottles in the side pockets, these are PERFECT for an extra layer, or even sandals. I just strap them in and I'm ready to rock.

I can't say enough good things about this pack. It got me through my last year of undergrad, through grad school, traveled the country, back and front/wet and dry, and I still take on trips.

Fantastic daypack! I replaced my old North Face Hot Shot my dog mangled up with the Bebop. It is lightweight and holds just the right amount of stuff. I like to think the "Axe-S quick release ice axe toggle" is really featured on the pack to be a bottle opener!

I'm a true believer in all Mt. Hardwear!!! Backcountry skiing, mt. runner, mt. biker, kitesurfer & just out for a trek. This back can do it all, comfort, light, easy to get into and find what you need.

For long exposed touring I use a little more beef. But farming the back this is the goods!! Light easy comfort and durable!!
