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 Makes the load feel 1/3 lighter! I am a frequent day hiker and have used many brands and types of packs over the years. This one is in a class by itself. The incredible design actually makes the load feel lighter. The waist belt is streamlined and carries the load easily without restricting movement. It can handle large full winter gear loads and tightens down with the compression straps for smaller loads. Could use another pocket or two for smaller items, but given the incredible comfort, I opted to use a stuff sack or two which solved that issue. Easily, the most comfortable day pack ever.
