Mountain Hardware's super-light and ultra-stable, this is the pack for covering long distances over difficult terrain.
Traversing high, narrow goat paths are no fun with a floppy pack, so Mountain Hardwear built the Fluid 48 Backpack with an On-The-Fly compression system to crank the CoolWave Plus suspension tightly onto your back. The padded mesh that covers the back panel, shoulder straps, and waist belt helps keep your body cool as you take the trail up and over jagged peaks.
Super-light and ultra-stable, the Fluid 48 from Mountain Hardwear is a pack designed for covering long distances over difficult terrain. With On-The-Fly compression, you can adjust load stability while wearing the pack without restricting motion - keeping you fast and nimble on the trail.
