Light, fast...and waterproof

The Exped Cloudburst 15 and 25 packs are great waterproof alternatives for trail runners in wet environments. Fully taped with a roll-top closure, these packs will keep clothing and other gear dry in the worst downpour. Mesh shoulder straps and a webbing hip belt transfer weight comfortably while respecting the lightweight needs of runners. Here's a link to more info about these packs on our website.

The other common usage for these is as "summit packs" for when you get to a camp and want to do day trips beyond. On the way in Cloudburst works great as a waterproof stuff sack for sleeping bags or clothing and converts instantly to a pack once camp is set up.
