The Distance 8L Pack from Black Diamond is engineered to redefine your line, from the trail runs that bleed into rocky scrambles, to alpine adventures that cover a wide spectrum of mountain terrain. This hybrid pack blends running vest technology with intimate knowledge of alpine pack systems to carry the gear you need, while remaining featherweight and comfortable enough to move at a fast clip.
Built from UHMWP 10x Ripstop Yarns the Distance’s fabric is literally 10-times stronger than steel per weight, while remaining so light it floats in water. The shoulder strap harness system utilizes Stitch-less Edge Taping Technology which means the shoulder strap edge binding is fully edge taped instead of sewn, which allows for superior comfort, movement, and weight reduction.
Also, the harness system is constructed with an adjustable, elastic-cording side compression system, which gives you a more secure ride while running scrambling and climbing. This vest-like system also includes dual flask pockets and a Deploy pocket to stash the BD Deploy Wind Shell.
The pack portion of this Distance includes a quick Blitz-style main opening with a stash pocket to tuck away essentials, while a mesh divider wall can store cordelette or a water bladder that can integrate with the pack’s hose routing.
On the pack’s exterior, the Distance 8 includes dual piolet/ice axe holsters, and dual Z-Pole quiver sleeves to stash your trekking poles when the terrain changes. Dual front stretch pockets are an extra place to stash nutrition or gear, making the Distance 8 an ultra-versatile pack for moving light and fast in the mountains.
