The mid-sized Black Diamond Axiom 40 internal frame pack has a ground-breaking suspension system and a lightweight design that is sure to appeal to ounce-counting backpackers and hikers. The Axiom 40 is ideal for technical day hiking or fast-and-light overnights.
Combining multiple design technologies, the lightweight, innovative Black Diamond reACTIV suspension system provides a full range of motion while ensuring stable load support. A contoured 6061 aluminum frame maintains stability while transferring weight to the reACTIV hipbelt. This ultra-flexible hipbelt employs a floating pass-through design intended to mimic the movement of your body without compromising load stability. Further enhancing performance, innovative shoulder straps are connected via an integrated low-friction cable that allows them to mirror your every move while maintaining a balanced load. A sliding sternum strap and load-lifter straps also help to improve fit. An OpenAir backpanel and soft, breathable mesh fabrics on the shoulder straps and hipbelt promote breathability while cushioning the Axiom 40 against your back.
The Axiom 40 has a lid that provides extra storage and protection. It can be removed entirely when you're traveling light and an integrated roll-top closure still keeps the interior of the Axiom 40's packbag protected from the elements. A large elasticized front pocket is perfect for stashing gear and doubles as a compression system that aids in load stabilization. Stretch side pockets provide additional storage space and a small pocket on the hipbelt is perfect for keeping valuables within easy reach. The Axiom 40 has integrated trekking pole/ice axe loops and a lined internal sleeve and drinking tube exit ports make the pack hydration system (not included) compatible.
