Macpac Fiord 1.1 40L Pack
Why we made this
Engineered for the weight conscious, the Fiord leverages over four decades of pack building expertise to combine performance with traditional hiking features.
The Fiord 40 1.1 presents lightweight performance that doesn't compromise on durability. Made from hard-wearing nylon and Cordura® fabrics, this pack features an extendable storm throat for greater overload capacity on those longer hiking trips, yet with side and top compression straps you can easily modify the pack for comfort while carrying less gear. Mesh side pockets offer convenient storage for drink bottles, while the front mesh pocket and additional bungee attachments make it easy to shed and stash layers in between rain showers. The HeliumLite™ harness features breathable mesh and is easy to adjust for individual comfort — as is the lightly padded hip belt — making life easy on multi-day hiking trips.

5.0 / 5.0
I can recommend this pack. I have had a Fiord for a couple of years now, but I have only used it much this summer. I have found it big enough for multi-day trips, with a summer-weight sleeping bag. The size makes it light. I could keep my long weekend load down to 9kg including a light tent and water, without feeling I had had to leave anything out. It is very convenient in the bush as it doesn't snag as much as a bigger pack and its easy to get on and off. The harness is light but comfortable and the extras (especially the hip belt pockets) are very convenient.
