The Exped Lightning range of packs are superlight, streamlined packs but featuring an actually comfortable load-bearing carry system. The main body of the pack is made from durable 210D Dyneema with a PU coating for weather resistance.
The main roll top opening is simple, can be clipped back to itself or down the sides of the pack for smaller loads and futher improves the pack's weather resistance. There are two spandex side pockets for a water bottle or maps. The side compression straps go most of the way round the pack so it can be compressed close to your back to help with balance on technical terrain. They also double as external carrys for large items and skis. There are also Ice tool / Trekking pole attachment points.
Where the Lightning pack stands out from competitors in its weight bracket is the carry system. Expeds T-Rex suspension system, consisting of a central aluminium stave, and top stay transfers the weight of the pack onto the comfortable dual density molded foam hip belt. The back length is adjustable to fit a wide range of heights.
