A well designed, lightweight pack that makes load-carrying easy
A really comfortable pack with plenty of space for extra kit. Itís got lightweight, flexible and padded hip fins and shoulder straps, and the load is distributed easily across the hips. Itís also got a suspended mesh back system with padded lumbar support so that load-carrying is comfortable and sweat-free. The main compartment is really big, with a zipped panel on the front so you can rummage inside without undoing the lid. Thereís also a really useful expansion pocket on the front, and mesh pockets on each hip fin. Comes with a rain cover, but it isnít connected to the pack Ė I nearly lost mine in the wind! Thereís a pocket for your hydration system, and two large pockets on the lid.

Perfect for technical routes or longer trips. Auto fit harness system, with airflow across back. All access front zip. Side and bottom compression. Quick access waistbelt pockets. Built in rain cover.
Ranging from larger daypacks for light and fast overnights to small packs for a quick outing, the JetStream DTS line has a pack suited for you. Although for carrying less weight, the suspension can handle up to 30 pounds with ease. A curved steel bar held in tension with the framesheet starts flexing the more you load up the pack, effectively transferring the weight directly to the lumbar pad and onto your hips.
Thanks to the well padded lumbar pad, there is also minimal slippage when scrambling across terrain, so the pack stays centred and balanced on your back.
