The Matador Beast 28 is a technical backpack designed for serious outdoor adventure yet it weighs a mere 560 grams and folds into a storage sac no bigger than a wide mouth water bottle. The polyurethane coated rip-stop nylon is  lightweight, super tough, water resistant and also tear-proof, making this durable 28L bag strong and big enough to hold all your gear for destination hikes and overnight treks. You can easily store a 3L hydration pack in the designated pocket with routing on either side of the bag for hoses or use the space for a 15” laptop. A top lid pocket and dual side mesh pockets hold quick access items and there is an external adjustable stash pocket with compression straps on the back.

The main compartment opens for full access with two YKK zippers. Light lumbar and waist padding, breathable shoulder straps and fully adjustable hip belt and sternum strap all provide additional comfort and support. The flexible frame suspension provides comfort and torsion with movement, for an agile fit that moves with you and distributes loads evenly. If you need to carry extra items there are gear tethers with Nifco anchors and daisychains. When not in use, simply twist and fold the frame, and secure into the compression sack. The spring steel frame bounces back into its original shape when released. Easily twist, fold, and store the pack in the included compression sac. Toss this beast into your suitcase for backpacking trips or use it as your daily commuter bag.
