An ultra-lightweight option for thru-hikers or fast-and-light backpackers, the innovative Klymit Motion 60 pack reflects a commitment to comfort and functionality. The panel loading pack weighs less than 3 pounds including the Air Beam framesheet!
The Air Beam framesheet in the Motion 60 is a game-changing inflatable support that offers several advantages over traditional internal frames. For example, the Air Beam framesheet conforms perfectly to the wearer's back and allows fine adjustment based on the weight of the load simply by increasing or decreasing the inflation level to compensate. Additionally, by capturing the power of air, the suspension system on the Motion 60 is one of the lightest available. Contoured padding in the shoulder straps and hipbelt offers additional comfort and aids in both fit and load control, though much of the comfort, load transfer and stability in the Motion 60 does come courtesy of the Air Beam framesheet, which is also fully removable, as desired. To ensure that you experience a proper overall fit, the Motion 60 is available in Small/Medium (fits torso lengths from 16"-20") and Medium/Large (fits torso lengths from 19"-23") sizes.
The Motion 60’s main, top loading, 3661 cubic inch-capacity compartment utilizes compression straps, as well as the Air Beam framesheet, to keep contents secure. A large front stretch-fabric pocket serves as a "stuff it" storage option and keeps extra layers in easy reach. Stretch-fabric side pockets are ideal for water bottles and other gear.
Other features include waterproof zippers, several external gear attachment points and a bungee system on the front of the pack for lashing and securing items that you want to keep easily accessible as you move. A lined internal sleeve makes the Motion 60 compatible with hydration systems (sold separately).
The Klymit Motion 60 internal frame backpack is available in your choice of size.

Likes: I was intrigued by the concept of having an adjustable air bladder rather than a rigid frame as the primary pack support. I have always gotten blisters on my hip bones and spine where my pack tends to rub when carrying heavier loads, so this form fitting pack sounds ideal. The overall comfort of the pack is fantastic, great airflow, and unbelievably light weight compared to weight it can haul!
Dislikes: Material it is made out of doesn't allow for much stretching. Not sure what all the compression straps are for, seems silly. The air bladder is a bit clumsy overall in design. Also, appears to be slightly too large for its pocket in pack.
