    OVERVIEW:

    Our Flight Series backpacks are rugged, lightweight, and comfortable even with heavier backpacking loads of 35 to 50 lbs.  Using the all-new Ultra 400 UHMWPE and Ultragrid 200d fabrics, these lightweight backpacks are excellent choices for day hikes, ski mountaineering, thru-hiking, summit attempts, or large water hauls in dry areas.

    Flight Two features a rolltop closure, a large mesh face pocket, and two patent pending side water bottle pockets that securely hold a smart water bottle or nalgene.

    Load Rating - 35 to 50 lbs

    Load rating changes based on torso height and frame height.

    Torso Height is the distance from C7 (the prominent vertebrae at the base of your neck) down the spine to an imaginary line drawn connecting the points of the hips (iliac crests).  Common measurements for a 6' tall male would be 17 to 19", while a 5'5" female may be 15 to 16", though these measurements vary widely based on body composition.

    Ordering

    • Note - 23" and 25" packbags are not interchangeable.  A 23" packbag accepts only a 23" frame, and a 25" accepts only a 25".
    • Note -  Flight packbags and suspension components are NOT interchangeable with our Revolution Frame backpacks.
    • To Order - Select the options you want and add the pack to the cart to generate a live inventory feed that will tell you if the pack is in stock and what the expected lead time is if it is not in stock.  For rush orders or "need-by" dates call us at 970-208-8108.
    • Flight Series Packs vs. Revolution Frame Packs - judge by your frequent use.  If you often carry 35+ plus pounds or ever need to carry 50+, then a Revolution Frame pack is the best choice.  If you most often carry 20, sometimes carry 35, and may carry up to 50 occasionally then the Flight will serve you well.

    Instructions:

    Fitting:

    Fitting the Flight is simple and straightforward.

    1. Adjust hipbelt length to fit your waist.  The padded portion of the belt should wrap around the points of your hips, but not by enough to limit webbing travel for the center buckle.  
    2. With the load lifters loose, shoulder the pack and snug the shoulder straps.
    3. Snug the load lifters.
    4. Go seek something, preferably outside.

    FAQ

    Q:  Is this backpack waterproof?

    A:  No.  The seams will allow water to seep in.  If you are in extremely wet environments we recommend seam sealing your backpack with silicone seam sealer.  See our pack instructions page to learn how.

    Q:  Will any flight pack parts - packbags, hipbelt, harness, frame, etc - interchange with your bigger packs that use the Revolution Frame (such as Divide, Unaweep, Goshawk, etc)?

    A:  No.

    Q:  If I get a 22" framed Flight pack can I later install a 24" frame in it if I feel the need?

    A:  No.  The packbags are dedicated to 22 OR 24" frames, not both.

    Q:  I'm a packrafter and need maximum water resistance in my pack.  How do I waterproof the Flight?

    A:  Use silicone seam sealer to seal the seams and cover the hydration port with tenacious tape.
