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.

How To Fit Black Diamond Packs


Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hiking Pack Love this pack! It was just what I was looking for. The side stash pockets on the outside of the pack was exactly what I needed in a pack. I like to hike at a quicker pace and to be able to reach back and grab my H2O bottle is easier than stopping and unzipping my pack. Lots of extra pockets to store other gear. Love the pocket on the hip strap to store my phone. Comfortable, holds a good amount and very sturdy. August 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by very comfy. more pockets for 5th star The shoulder straps do move with you, but stops at a point so it doesn't make the pack unstable. Call me silly, but I carry a lot of water, and I strap snowshoes etc on the outside. So along with my shoulder injury, hip straps are essential even on a small pack. I had only a few packs to pick from under 25L (Gregory, Osprey, MEC, etc.). But even out of 100 packs, I'm sure I'd picked this one as the fit was perfect (5'2" with a long torso). Extremely comfortable. The weight distributes evenly on the hip strap, and nothing digs in with light summer clothes or winter layers. The shoulder straps, caused concerns initially due to its narrowness, are comfortable and gives me the "I'm strapped into my pack" feel that I like. Only had it for a few weeks, so the durability I can't speak about. Repels rain ok (treated after purchase), but I use a rain cover. I'd really wish it had many more pockets - at least one more. Things like **epi pen** that I'd like to keep very handy in bee season can't fit into either the hip pocket or the top pocket. I will have to attach some pockets and equipment loops, but I'm having trouble finding reinforced spots for them. (though I wonder if this pack was designed for the super light-weight niche? Then why the hip strap?) Got it directly from black Diamond on sale, so the price was a steal. I like how it doesn't come with hydration pack so I can put the one I Like. Overall a great pack. More pockets for the 5th star. December 23, 2013
