Hyperlite Mountain Gear Porter 5400 (85 Litre)


Incl. VAT

This is fast becoming the lightweight backpack for Packrafting. The 5400 Porter, like all HMG packs is stripped down to the essentials only. This 85 litre pack can easily fit all you packrafting gear inside and carries a load well.

Just like the standard Porter, the 5400 uses HMG mayhem-tested 150-Denier Poly-Dyneema Composite Fabric Hybrid for the main body of the pack but adds more protection to the base of the bag with a 375-Denier layer. Like other HMG packs, this one pairs exceptionally well with HMG Stuff Sacks.

Add a Porter Stuff Pocket for some extra storage on the outside of the pack.

Weight: 1387grams  (Weights may vary slightly by torso size).
