Since 2010, Maine-based outdoor gear brand Hyperlite has crafted some of the finest backpacks on the market, thanks in part to its fervent use of Dyneema, the super-lightweight and unbelievably-tough synthetic fiber that is often applied when woven into a given fabric.
Today, Hyperlite has unveiled its first-ever ski pack, the Headwall 55, designed with input by professional skier Cody Townsend. Built to be versatile in both construction and configuration, the bag can withstand even the harshest of weather conditions while protecting your gear and keeping it accessible. Despite the incredible 55L capacity, the Headwall still maintains a slim build and effortless carry when traversing the backcountry slopes.
With Dyneema running all throughout the bag, the Headwall 55 isn’t just lightweight but reinforced in high-abrasion spots as well. Aside from the spacious interior and myriad of zippered pockets both inside and outside, there’s a large dual-enclosure Avalanche Pocket on the exterior secured by a hook and loop closure and Y-strap. Likewise, the adjustable hip belt can be tailored to whatever situation you’ll experience in the mountains.
The perfect companion for your next skiing or snowboarding trip, the Headwall 55 is available now from Hyperlite’s website for $449.
