See available overnight packs


A streamlined pack for fast and light alpine ascents. Black Diamond's ergoACTIV suspension uses an innovative ball-joint that provides unparalleled freedom of movement for technical rock and ice routes. When weight is at a premium, you can strip off the padded hipbelt, frame, framesheet, interior foam bivy pad and top lid to make to an ultralight summit bag. The 40L capacity suits done-in-a-day peak bagging and judiciously packed overnighters.

  • Main fabric is ripstop nylon with higher denier reinforcements in key areas
  • ergoACTIV hipbelt moves with you to allow comfort and mobility in all directions
  • Top-loading design with removable floating lid, spindrift collar and tuck-away rope strap
  • Ice tool pick pockets
