Why We Chose The Six Moon Design Flight 30: An innovative pack that’s perfect for speedy trail journeys
Six Moon Designs, in case you’re not familiar with them, are a backpacking brand that specialises in out-and-out ultralight kit.
This pack isn’t brand new per se, but rather an update to one of their previous designs. They’ve cut down the weight by 113g and added the potential to chop and change it by customising it with different hipbelts and harnesses of different sizes and styles that they offer.
The one we’ve tested (that’s pictured) has the Large Vest straps and Medium UL Hipbelt.
Who Is The Six Moon Designs Flight UL 30 For?
In short, this should really appeal to any fast packers out there. It’s the kind of thing that you can run big distances with, and with all your camping kit stashed inside it. It will also serve any ultralight hikers out there as well.
Materials and Construction
The main compartment of this is basically a roll top dry bag, one that will keep your kit absolutely bone dry even in monsoon conditions. It has a compression strap system, bungees for storage and then deep mesh pockets.
“All-in-all it makes for a very stable carry that doesn’t swing about or bounce too much.”
The harness is essentially a trail running vest. It conforms to the shape of your body and offers a number of adjustment options, allowing you to adjust the back length and also the height and width of the straps. A narrow yoke on the spine and 5 other connection points link this harness with the pack, all-in-all making for a very stable carry that doesn’t swing about or bounce too much – even when you’re at running pace.
