Flash Pack PocketFlash Pack Pocket


The Lightning has always been a very popular pack. Simple design, minimal features, low weight and a capacious volume.
The new version is in short supply due to the updated features which are proving equally popular. It still keeps the simple roll top access and numerous compressions straps. However they have upgraded the lumbar support and strengthend the aluminium frame which will make it more comfortable as a long distance load lugger.
Once again the KISS principle is working well and as good as the previous version is, this will add just that little bit more to your outdoor enjoyment.
For those who like a large external front pocket, don't forget the Exped Flash Pocket accessory is designed to clip onto this pack.

Its top-loading roll closure maximizes weatherproofing and allows expansion of the main compartment to accommodate extra gear when needed. 

Zig-zag side compression straps and an over-the-top strap with Rapide Hook secure the load to the frame. Lightning employs a remarkably lightweight suspension system, the backbone of which is a stout, single aluminum stay that is secured to the lumbar pad for direct weight transfer to the users hips. The padded shoulder yoke, with sternum strap, slides along the the stay, allowing a wide range of vertical, micro-adjustment to precisely match the wearers torso length while reducing contact points to a minimum. 

Stretch pouches on each side hold water bottles, trekking poles or tent poles and zippered stretch pockets on each hip belt wing hold small items for quick access. A weather-resistant-zippered pocket at the top of the frame holds and gives access to a hydration reservoir. A mesh inner pocket keeps valuables secure. A strong top haul loop and, a pair of ice axe loops and central daisy chain with attachment cords makes Lightning mountaineering capable. Available in women's and men's designs. 210 D, PU-coated ripstop nylon balances light weight, durability and weather resistance.
