Sierra Designs Flex Hike 20L-30L

We’ve been big fans of the horizontal compression system that Sierra Designs has been using on its large-sized Flex Capacitor packs and we’re excited to see that same innovative approach applied to a smaller offering. This design is a really smart way to build real capacity modularity into a pack while avoiding some of the “tippiness” we’ve seen in a traditional top expansion sleeve. With the Flex Hike 20L-30L, the contents of your pack stay perfectly stabilized thanks to the easily adjusted front compression gusset whether you have it packed out at its maximum thirty liters or are traveling much lighter. Three cheers for thinking outside of the box and landing not just on something different but on something that works.
