Matador Beast18 Ultralight Technical BackpackGET IT
Getting after those epic summertime adventures means you need to pack thoughtfully and efficiently. And when we say this, we’re speaking specifically to those people who tend to over-pack (you know who you are). Keeping things minimal is key for so many excursions when you don’t want to weigh yourself down right out of the gate. And one of the raddest new packs we tested this season is the Matador Beast18.
This technical pack has boatloads of features, without boatloads of unnecessary bulk. It’s categorized as an ultra-light frame pack engineered specifically for outdoor pursuits. (We’d have to agree that that claim is spot-on). It has just the right amount of support without feeling overly stifling on your range of motion, and it packs down to almost nothing when not in use. Perfect for everything from short domestic travels to far-flung excursions off the grid. It’s made from Robic fabric for optimal durability, and it’s also reinforced with a UTS weatherproof coating so it’ll hang tough during inclement weather patterns.
If you’re contemplating a summer adventure, then you need to book your plane ticket now… and then order this pack. You won’t be disappointed with either. Trust us.—Jon Perino, senior editor
