Hyperlite Mountain Gear is not about bells and whistles, non-essential features or the latest trending colors. We build stripped down, high performance, outdoor gear that’s designed to meet, in as minimalist a manner as possible, the exacting requirements of the goal-oriented adventurers who use it. Our goal is simple—to arrive at the ideal balance of strength, weight and performance to create gear that’s bombproof and foolproof with modern, high-tech, waterproof materials with a minimalist design philosophy.
Ditch the bells and whistles, and optimize your backcountry experience. We’ve got exactly what you need (and nothing more)—ultra-durable, ultralight backpacks designed to function perfectly and become a seamless extension of the adventurers who use them. We’ve overthought our gear so you don’t have to. Our streamlined designs mean our lightweight packs won’t get in your way when you’re in that Zen adventure moment. And the bombproof, foolproof and waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber) we use stops rips, slows down wear and tear common with other, lesser materials, and makes our packs water resistant. Thru hike your 2000 miles, bag those peaks and climb big alpine ice lines; we guarantee you’ll do it faster, safer and more efficiently with our ultralight packs.
