Why we made this
Engineered for the weight conscious, the Fiord 1.1 40L Hiking Pack leverages over four decades of pack building expertise to combine performance with traditional hiking features.
  • Product Description
    The Fiord 40 1.1 presents lightweight performance that doesn't compromise on durability. Made from hard-wearing nylon and Cordura® fabrics, this hiking 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.

Good pack but...
If you are after an 'ultralight' backpack, this pack is worthy of your consideration. I have a traditional 65L and an ultralight frameless 40L roll-top backpacks. Thus, I will using them as references when writing this review. Everything on this pack has been shrunken down. This is both good and bad. The shoulder straps are 'narrow' but it is very well-padded. An interesting feature (intended or otherwise) is the pivoting hip belt, which allows unhindered body movement. It feels quite strange at first as I was expecting a more 'straight-jacket' feeling as I have with my other packs, but the harness is overall incredibly comfortable (the best of the three packs!) and it fits with the ultralight theme of the pack by allowing for freedom of body movement. However, Macpac should consider some improvements in Version2: The front mesh pockets is just too shallow, it should be made bigger in line with designs from many Cottage backpack makers. The side pocket should also be made bigger to accept 2x1L water bottles on each side. The hip-belt pocket can also be made bigger. I consider these spaces to be very important for items that need to be accessed without needing to go into the main compartment during a hike. I would also prefer for the hip-belt to be longer (ie, ~18cm), so it would wrap around by my bony hip, rather than just providing padding on top of the hip bone as it is now. Most of the straps are too narrow and too lightweight and that makes buckling up difficult even with my nimble fingers. Unlike the straps on my frameless pack, the straps on this pack cheapens the feel of the pack. Lastly, I don't understand why Macpac do not include a whistle on the sternum strap. It is just one more thing I got to carry. This pack has many things going for it and it is also well priced. Ultimately, I think it is important to try it fully loaded to see if it is for you.

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.

So is this a 40 or 49L packs
? (with reference to the 9L lid and overload capacity).
Michael L on May 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Found this on the Macpac NZ web site: The bag itself is 40L if just filled to normal height, but if you loaded the full roll top and lid you get an additional 9L.

Kind regards

Can the average person reach the water bottles in the side pockets while wearing the pack?

I’m in my late fifties and not very flexible. I can get the bottle out but need help to put it back

What is the recommended maximum weight for this pack to carry? From both a durability and comfort perspective?
Robin M on Aug 26, 2020

Thanks for your your enquiry.

This would depend on the users comfort levels however we would generally recommend a maximum load weight of around 12kgs.
