WHY ACTIVE suspension?

WHY ACTIVE suspension?

Black Diamond packs built with our award-winning active suspension systems—ergoACTIV, ergoACTIV XP, reACTIV and reACTIV XP—are unparalleled in comfort, efficiency and load transfer. Because the shoulder straps and hipbelt move with you, friction and hot spots are eliminated. The pack’s load stays perfectly balanced at all times—without adjustment—and allows your body to move naturally in any direction. This results in a more efficient, comfortable, longer stride—meaning you can cover more ground, more quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect pack for my needs I can't say enough good things about this pack. This is the 4th backpack I've owned and I'm pretty sure I'll never buy anything other than a Black Diamond pack again. When it arrived I packed all my winter hiking gear in it, I was thrilled with the comfort. I then added what I usually carry for water and attached both ice axes. I have never had so much weight feel so comfortable. I am a "peak-bagger"/"day-hiker". I do most of my hiking with my girlfriend, and because of an old injury it's difficult for her to carry a pack. Therefore I carry my gear and her's. This pack carries it all with ease. January 16, 2015
