Product Highlights

Designed for technical day hiking, the Black Diamond Octane internal frame pack is equipped with an innovative suspension system. A sleek, compact profile is perfect for fast-moving, active pursuits and the throw-open top panel access lets you quickly access the gear you need for backcountry adventures.

Combining multiple design technologies, the Black Diamond ergoACTIV 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 ergoACTIV hipbelt. Employing a ball-joint attachment, the ergo ACTIV hipbelt allows unrestricted movement in any direction and far surpasses the performance of traditional hipbelts. 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 Octane against your back.

The Octane is available in M (torso fit range of 17.5"-20.5") and L (19.5"-23.5") size variations. The storage capacity of the M is 1700 cubic inches and the larger size provides 1831 cubic inches of capacity. The Octane's top-loading packbag is accessed through a horseshoe-shaped zipper that offers wide-open access to the interior. 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 Octane 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.

The Black Diamond Octane daypack is available in your choice of size and color.

    Likes: I've shopped numerous technical day packs. The Octane's carry system allows for a customized fit that moves with your body. The hip-belt and shoulder strap system transfers weight, making loads feel lighter compared to similar market niche products. I've been thrilled with both the mechanics and the aesthetic design of the pack. As an aside, B.E. customer service is top drawer and worked with me in an extra ordinary manner to receive my business.

    Dislikes: Don't expect the hydration sleeve to completely swallow a 100oz bladder.
