Distance 8 Backpack (Fall 2022)

Adding to cart… The item has been added


Built for the fast and light mountain adventurer, the Distance 8 pack transcends barriers with its hybrid design that includes vest-inspired suspension for running, and a unique feature set that allows you to carry the appropriate gear while navigating intricate mountain terrain.

Built from BD's UHMWP 10x Ripstop Yarns—the same burly material used in climbing dogbones and Ultralight Camalots—the Distance’s fabric is literally 10 times stronger than steel per weight, while remaining so light it floats in water.

The shoulder strap harness system utilizes Stitch-less Edge Taping Technology—meaning the shoulder strap edge binding is fully edge-taped instead of sewn, which allows for superior comfort, movement, and weight reduction. Also, the harness system is constructed with an adjustable, elastic-cording side compression system, which gives you a more secure ride while running scrambling and climbing.

This vest-like system also includes dual flask pockets that fit two HydraPak® SoftFlasks™ (sold separately) and a Deploy pocket to stash the BD Deploy Wind Shell (also sold separately).
