I purchased the pack online from Hyperlite for US$365. Shipping to Canada was an additional $40.
With the pack I also ordered a small Pod which fits inside without wasting any space. I put it on the bottom with light items including clothing.
NOT inexpensive. 😕
That said, after my first overnight hiking trip, I’m very happy with the Windrider.
- light (32oz) but not as light as my usual Virga 2 (18.5oz)
- incredibly durable
- waterproof finally!
- expandable to 55L plus 3 big mesh pockets
Many on the PCT this year were carrying the white version. I much prefer black.
I’d say it’s the best looking lightweight pack available right now.
