People Love Our Packs

The manufacturer's attention to design and their commitment to quality is evident throughout. Love the pockets built into the shoulder straps, as well as the pocket on the top of the pack. Water bottles fit well into the side pockets.

Excellent design, construction and materials all contribute to the best backpacking experience imaginable. This rig acts as an extension of our anatomies, following all of our steps, turns and hops closely without slinging or shifting around and pulling us off balance.

I have had this pack for two years and put 1000+ miles on it. Colorado Trail and many other short and longer distant trails. I have not abused, but not been easy on it. It is hands down the most comfortable/adjustable pack I have ever had. Carries everything I need and it feels like its not even there. I have lower back issues and it has let me enjoy carrying a pack again. It holds heat at the point of contact on your back but it also supports my lower back, a good trade-off in my opinion. I love this pack so much, I am ordering a second one now just to put in the closet should this one ever wear out, which it shows no sighs of right now. Definitely order the Vest Harness, I can't see wearing a pack without one. It takes a short tome to get use to the "snugness" of it, but totally worth it. Thank you Six Moons for another quality product.

The backpack is badass. It’s like you read my mind. It's the backpack I would make if I was in the backpack making business. All it’s missing is the stench, and I can supply that :) Thanks Six Moons! Stay small, stay local. Don’t become Columbia, or let the Columbias of the business beat you like they did White Stag. Hiker Trash forever!

I cruised up the Alpine Lakes trails in Washington over steep boulders and quick switchbacks. I’ve never had a better fitting and more comfortable pack! I thru-hiked with an Osprey and had few complaints but the interior space and comfortability was nothing like this Swift. Can’t wait to test it on how much longer trip

As others have mentioned, this bag is great for fast and light overnight trips. Granted, my pack base weight for fall/spring and summer conditions is less than 7lbs (including this pack). I’ve found that even with food, fuel, and water this bag carries very comfortably. This bag has many features which I enjoy: the very comfortable shoulder straps, the removable sit pad, the brain zippered pocket, the huge stretch pockets on both sides and the front, the stretch pockets on the shoulder straps, the removable hip belt which I actually use as a gear strap on the bottom for my Thermarest Z-lite, the daisy chains, the bottom inside of the bag is bright Orange, and even the little zippered key/ wallet pocket at the top inside of the bag. From travel, to day hikes, to around town trips, to short UL overnights in the backcountry, I’m confident this pack will fulfill you needs.

I intended to use the pack for my PCT thru-hike, but when the permit was canceled, the Swift X became my long day of adventure pack. The vest is a great for making snacks and all the other things you need throughout the day available. The pack material is super light, but has been very durable. The day the pack earned my approval was when I decided to toss it down about a 30 foot cliff to make the down climb easier and it landed on some sharp rocks with no ill effects.

I’ve tried a lot of packs. This pack is the perfect mix of features and UL design. Mine has the vest vs. shoulder straps. It is the most comfortable pack I have worn. I like the way the vest carries the load vs. shoulder straps. My heaviest pack weight to date is 32lbs and it carried the load much better than my previous UL pack. Overall great features and weight!

I knew I had to replace my pack after 1200 miles on the AT. I had lost 50 lbs, and my hip belt no longer fit, placing too much of the load on my shoulders. The Minimalist felt good from the start, mostly because it is the most adjustable pack I have ever seen. The hip belt is grippy, but comfortable, and replaceable to boot. BTW, the Skyscape Trekker tent fits in the long side pocket. Combine their prices to see how much it costs to join the lightweight club! Wish I had started with this pack.
