Equinox Ltd. is perhaps best known among ultralight backpackers for their numerous products made from silnylon. They continue to be resourceful with the introduction of a 6.1 ounce daypack, a 1.6 ounce tote bag, a 4.9 ounce duffle, and a 4.8 ounce fanny pack. All are nicely designed, well constructed, and very compactable.
The Equinox Ultralight Day Pack is 900 cubic inches and weighs just 6.1 ounces. It has padded shoulder straps, two side mesh pockets, and a top pocket with top strap and buckle. It will easily double as a stuff pack in your pack, and a day pack for a foray from camp. The pack shown is a prototype, so it is subject to change and doesn’t have a MSRP yet.
The Equinox Tote Bag weighs just 1.6 ounces and measures 20 inches wide by 16 inches high. I included it in this writeup because it can be a very useful piece, or gift. They tested it with 100 pounds in it!
Equinox’s Cargo Bag (duffle) weighs just 4.9 ounces and measures 20 inches long by 9 inches wide by 11 inches high. It has a main zippered opening plus one zippered outside pocket. This item really compacts down to a very small size in a provided stuff sack, and we included it because of its versatility. MSRP is $29.
The Bandicoot Ultralight Fanny Pack measures 11 inches wide by 8 inches high and weighs just 4.8 ounces. It has a zippered top entry and will sell for $28.75.
