Nature Calls Backpacking

REI Flash 62 Ultralight Men's Backpack Review

REI Flash 62 Pack - Men's

The updated REI Flash 62 Pack sports a redesigned frame, hipbelt and back panel, combining ultralight materials with the comfort and performance you'd expect from a heavier pack.

New tubulur aluminum perimeter frame and updated, structured hipbelt offer superior load transfer and stability, letting you carry hefty loads while minimizing pack weight
Hipbelt cradles the hips for a natural fit and offers impressive comfort and load transfer for an ultralight pack
Hipbelt webbing system lets you use a natural forward pulling motion for quick, easy cinching and precise adjustment
Precurved shoulder straps match your anatomy for nonbinding comfort and stability; perforated foam allows body vapor to pass through for improved comfort
New molded, mesh-covered EVA back panel offers comfortable, ventilating performance that rivals heavier packs
Top-loading main compartment can also be accessed from a zippered opening at the bottom; floating top lid can be extended to create additional volume
Hydration pocket holds a reservoir of your choice (sold separately) for drinking water on the go
Floating front pocket maintains volume even when the main compartment is fully loaded; it offers convenient storage and allows more compressible gear to be stored behind it
Large mesh side pockets hold items for quick access
Hipbelt has zippered pockets on both sides for on-the-go access to essentials such as snacks and lip balm
Water-resistant zippers let you stash valuables away from the elements
Lightweight Speed Hook attachment points let you strap tools and bulky gear to the pack; quick-release straps at the bottom offer easy attachment of a sleeping bag or pad
Side compression straps help secure both large and small loads for increased stability
The REI Flash 62 Pack is made with ripstop nylon that provides durability; polyurethane coating adds weather resistance
