Ultralight Outfitters is on a mission to make ultralight backpacking an appealing option for all. They have designed several products to sell this practice to the masses, including the Lightning Access backpack, which combined with other lightweight equipment, can reduce total pack weight to 16 pounds for a weekend excursion.
The Lightning Access Backpack is designed with the ultralight backpacker in mind. This pack is specifically intended for those who dread removing their pack repeatedly to access food, water, sunscreen, or whatever the day calls for. It can haul enough for a week-long jaunt, but is also compressible enough for day hikes around base camp.
