Minimalist V2 Pack



Six Moon Designs took the simple, clean design of the Minimalist, and using customer feedback, made it even better. The Minimalist V2 still has the perfect amount of space for all your gear and a lightweight suspension that adds just enough support but now with larger, more secure stash pockets. Even the lettering took on a new modern, subtle look. Thanks for the help making the thru-hikers dream backpack even better.

Despite being called the Minimalist, this pack provides all the comforts of much heavier packs. It comes with a removable Delrin Hoop Stay Frame and hip belt for maximum load days. And because every long-distance hiker is different, it has a lot of configurations to suit your specific comforts and offers a remarkable amount of extra storage space.

Comes with the standard Flight Shoulder Harness and Flight Hipbelt.

Other Features:
The main compartment is 40L with a 9L extension collar. It incorporates a top lid and has two additional large external gusseted pockets as well as a front stasher pocket with a pleated gusset. The top lid can be used to secure larger bear canisters too large to fit in the main compartment.

The exterior pockets add a lot of quick access storage solutions. And all the external pockets have been reconstructed for the V2, featuring larger, more secure designs.

-- Hip belt pockets are cavernous.
-- Both harness styles offer additional pockets for electronics, snacks, or other necessities.
-- 2 large asymmetric side pockets. The shorter right pocket is great for holding water bottles. The taller left pocket is perfect for carrying an ultralight tarp, tent, or tall hydration bladder.
-- Large rear shove-it sleeve for quick access to gear and rainwear.

The Minimalist V2 offers several adjustable straps and tensioners to ensure a stable, comfortable fit. The Delrin Hoop Frame is designed to shift load bearing to the hip belt, reducing the strain on your shoulders and upper body.

Frame Configuration
The Minimalist comes with a removable Delrin Hoop Stay Frame. The ends of the hoop rest on the base of the hip belt, transferring the weight to the hip belt. This design feature makes carrying heavy loads more comfortable and reduces pack sag.
Using the Delrin Hoop Stay and hip belt together increases your load carrying capacity by approximately 10 lbs*.
*We recommend a base weight of 12 lbs or less even when increasing load weight and using the Delrin Hoop Stay and hip belt.

Frameless Configuration
The Minimalist is the only ultralight, frame-less pack on the market with an adjustable torso length. This allows the Minimalist to provide unbridled comfort.
When configured as frame-less, the highest recommended base weight is 8 lbs / 3.5 kg and maximum weight not exceeding 25 lbs / 11 kg.

Standard Flight Shoulder Straps
If you’re used to carrying a traditional backpacking pack and aren’t from the running world, you will probably be comfortable with standard shoulder straps.
