With slightly more volume and a cleaner design than our Blaze pack, the Black Diamond EXL is the go-to choice for fast-and-light trail missions, ridge scrambles and all-day hikes. Our extended-range SwingArmTM shoulder straps help the pack move with your body while you're on the go, and the zippered panel access provides access to layers, water and other essentials. We also added side stretch pockets for gels or snacks, and a front compression cord to keep a light jacket at the ready.
- SwingArm™ shoulder straps with extended range and OpenAir backpanel

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.
