Description

The Windrider 40 is the pack that super-efficient thru-hikers and backpackers graduate down to when their kits are dialed, and the calories and fuel they need along the way are never too hard to find. Ideal for weekend or section hikes where frequent resupply points are available.

There’s a kind of classic image that comes to mind when you hear the word “hiking.” Dense green and brown forests with meandering rugged root-strewn trails lead to awe-inspiring hill and mountain panoramas, and rivers and streams lull tired explorers to sleep at the end of strenuous but rewarding days. These are the environments where the Windrider takes flight.

 

Formerly known as the 2400 Windrider. Packaging may have either name but the product is identical.

After a number of internal studies, Hyperlite has decided to remove the metal grommets from the weep holes of their packs. This product may ship with or without the grommet as they are phased out from Hyperlite's inventory.
The grommets were not an essential feature to the weep holes of the pack. Hyperlite has determined there is no physical function of these grommets and they have been merely for aesthetic purposes. Their design and production team has developed a consistent method of precision drilling the holes in the fabric. The heat generated from the friction from this process will seal the edges of the weep holes and eliminate the chance of the fabric fraying. This will now make the holes just as strong as when constructed with grommets.
