Blending running vest technology with an alpine pack system, the Distance 8L Pack is designed to be extremely versatile. This pack gives you the room to carry all your essential alpine gear while remaining ultra lightweight and comfortable to run in.
Constructed from Black Diamond's UHMWP 10x Ripstop Yarns, this pack is built to withstand miles and miles of abuse. The shoulder strap harness system features Stitch-less Edge Taping Technology to decrease weight while offering premium comfort and freedom of movement. The harness system utilizes an adjustable elastic-cording compression system to give you a secure ride while running, scrambling, and climbing.
The vest-like system offers dual soft flask pockets and a Deploy pocket to stash BD's wind shell. The rear of the pack includes BD's Blitz-style dump pocket with a small stash pocket to securely hold your essentials. A mesh divider provides secure place for a hydration bladder that integrates with the pack's hose routing. The exterior of the pack includes dual piolet/ice axe holsters, and dual Z-Pole quiver sleeves to stash your trekking poles. Dual front stretch pockets offer a quickly stash spot for snacks.
