Let’s take a closer look at the Mammut Creon Light 45 and the women’s Crea Light 40 backpacks. These are ultra-lightweight offering that look great, carry great and have a great set of features that we’ll take a closer look at. These packs are equipped with Mammut’s 4Stream suspension system which is a suspended back panel and here you can see my hand underneath it. There is great airflow on the netted panel itself and even at the cut-away opening at the bottom, sides and top. They breathe very nicely and will help keep you cooler while using these packs. There are stays and framing in the packs and despite their lightweight design does give load stability and support. You can see here, the sized shoulder adjuster so you can adjusts the torso length to the height you need. A padded waistbelt with a short wrap that keeps to the lightweight design and not much of a profile but enough to offer stability and support while in use. Same story here with the contoured shoulder straps with an adjustable shoulder strap and built in safety whistle. The women’s pack, the Crea Light, shares that same feature set but the positioning and contour of the shoulder straps and hipbelt are designed to fit a female user. So let’s turn the Creon Light around and look at the organizational features. It’s interior space is 45 liters and it’s a very streamlined pack. It is a top loading pack and has some zippered pocket on top and a separate pocket underneath the lid. It is vented and nice for keeping things separated. The lid can come off entirely if you are looking to shed weight even further and there are double drawstring closures here on this storm collar which would allow you to cinch it down for protection when the lid is off or expand it and use the height adjustable lid for additional storage capacity. There is a stuff-it pocket on the front which is stretchy and lets you get a good bit of stuff in there like a jacket or other layers. It is a top loading pack but there is zippered access on one side of the pack that lets you get at the interior of the pack. It’s not so sizeable that it makes that much sense for packing the pack but for getting inside it is awfully handy. There are two, large stretch mesh pockets on either side and I’ve got a water bottle buried in here and additional storage available on this side. You’ll see trekking pole attachment points that are really nice, including that deep pocket for the tip of your trekking pole which does a better job than other backpacks at keeping those trekking poles securely in place. There are attachment points on the outside for lashing other gear in place. So, a good lightweight option for fast and light overnights or extended days if you pack strategically, and lightweight enough that it could also be used for day hiking.
