2020 AWARD : Exodus Backpack #1
Top 10 Ultralight Backpacks of 2020
“The Exodus is exactly what I need. Perfect size, perfect fit; good grief I can’t believe it took me 5 Thru-Hikes to FINALLY find my perfect pack. Wow! Thru-Hike number 6 coming up and I’m ready to roll!” – THRU HIKING LEGEND LINT
The Exodus made two full thru-hikes with Triple, Triple Crowner Lint Bunting before he downsized to an MLD Burn (which joined him on his next three thru-hikes!) What makes this UL pack so darn tough?
Strategic design, multiple cutting-edge details, quality UL hardware, and superb MLD craftsmanship. All our seams are double or triple stitched, and each pack has over 50 strategic strength bartacks. Every detail is painstakingly thought out.
NOTE: Hip belt pockets, shoulder strap pockets, and pack lids are available in Stealth Grey ONLY – regardless of pack color.
EXODUS VS PROPHET:
The main pack bag and outside pockets are the same size. The Exodus has a 5″ taller extension collar. Everything else is the same. The Exodus weighs about 1 oz more. The Exodus is offered in the M, L and XL torso sizes only. Choose the Exodus if you are a larger person (think XL synthetic jacket or XL Quilt) or plan on using it often in colder temps below about freezing where you may need a bit of extra volume for low weight but bulkier clothing or sleep gear. Over 6’2″ = Exodus. Over 200lbs = Exodus. Bulky Synthetic quilts + hooded jacket + insulated pants = Exodus.
• One of the most supportive and cushioned hip belts in any sub 20oz frameless pack. Padded SuperWick Mesh lined waist belt wings with 1″ webbing and buckle. Girth adjusts from 30″ to 45″.
• S-shaped, comfort shoulder straps: 3″ wide X .8″ thick, SuperWick Mesh lined with full length highest quality 1/2″ thick EVA foam padding. Our shoulder straps are thicker and wider than most all other lightweight packs. Shoulder strap lower pack attachments are isolated from the hip belt for move comfort. Yes: Comfort is in the details.
• Curved, SuperWick Mesh lined ergonomically shaped shoulder straps with full-length daisy chains to mount water bottle and accessory pouches. These are very comfortable shoulder straps and are super tough.
• Curved Side Panels: A slight curve from the waist to the shoulders moves the load closer to the upper back for more comfort. This also creates a slightly larger main compartment higher in the pack that helps load control by moving the heavier and higher packed gear higher to reduces shoulder stress.
• Hybrid Mesh/DX 210D Ripstop Side and Rear Pockets. DX 210D Ripstop elastic top sleeves for long term Durability and elastic replacement. Slanted side mesh pockets are deep enough for a 2L Platy.Pocket adjusts by pulling the bungee closed through the cord lock. Many lower priced packs simply bind over the top of the raw mesh with regular garment type elastic that loses it’s stretch in a few years and doesn’t stretch in deep cold weather.

• Dual ice axe/trek pole loops.
• The main bag is large enough for a solo bear canister vertical or horizontal depending on how you pack your sleep pad.
