Montane's Hyper Tour 38 pack is made from ultra tough and light Cuben Fiber combined with a proven frameless harness system and provides a waterproof, ultralight yet sophisticated touring pack.

Montane says: Ultra minimalist lightweight fast mountain trail pack.

The Hyper Tour 38 pushes the limits of lightweight pack design. Constructed in the extremely lightweight but exceptionally strong Cuben Fiber fabric and with its simple, functional features this pack is a must for the ultra minimalist weight conscious fast packing activist.

Engineered to be the lightest Montane multi day mountain pack. Its unique design features a roll-top closure for fast access to gear with additional lightweight external storage capacity. The stripped down version of the Montane ‘Comfort Vent Back Pad’ and integrated Montane ‘Alpine Mat' offers superb comfort whilst not compromising the Hyper Tour’s ultra lightweight focus. Fully taped for weather protection, the Hyper Tour is perfect for anyone looking to save every gram possible in their kit.

It's great to see Montane venturing into the world of Cuben Fibre, if you haven't heard of this its a superlight, super-tough non-woven fabric that's been gradually introduced into outdoor products at the high, ultralight end of the market.

Montane's Hyper Tour 38 is their first product to use it, its a 38 Litre minimalist pack with a decent harness weighing in at just 500 grams. Although it is frameless the hip belt, padded back and top loader straps combine to give a comfortable carry, especially if you pack it thoughtfully.

Its not without some features, there are hip belt pockets, a stretch mesh shoulder strap pouch and the means of carrying gear externally on the pack front. Inside there's a velcro loop for a hydration bladder and there's an exit port just below the roll top closure.

Cuben Fibre is a waterproof material and the seams are taped so the Hyper Tour is fully watertight meaning you can save weight on drybags. Montane provide a folded sheet of closed cell foam with the pack which is designed to fit into two pockets inside and would provide padding on the back panel. The foam is very flimsy though and its hard to fit it into the pouches without damaging it.

I think the foam must be to sleep on aka a 'torso mat' - its hard core though.

Given its weight, the fact that its waterproof and that it has the proven Montane harness makes it a special pack, ideal for multi-day ultralight backpacking and racing.
