This week on The Cache: The NEW Six Moon Designs Swift X Packs, The NEW Mountain Laurel Designs Hell Packs, The REVAMPED Zpacks Altaplex, and the soon to be released Morsel Metal!


New Six Moon Designs Swift X

Six Moon Design's newest pack! With options of X-Pac or Liteskin, these 45L beauts start at weights as low as 23oz.

Over 10 years ago we designed an ultralight pack called the Swift. For the Swift's 10 year anniversary we have redesigned it with some modern upgrades. We are proud to offer you the Swift X. Adding to our Zero-G line, the Swift X uses lightweight, yet durable fabric with thoughtful design to create a streamlined and efficient ultralight backpack. The Swift X can handle anything from a quick overnight trip to a calendar year triple crown.

An ultralight simple minimalist hiking pack! The Hell Pack is perfect for overnights, SUL weekends, climbing, running, skiing, hiking, cycling, summits, alpine attacks and as a stealth travel carry-on pack. 11-13oz / 311-368gm

The Return of the Altaplex by Zpacks!

It's back and lighter than before! The Altaplex by Zpacks is updated and now weighs just 15.5oz. Ooolala.

Specifically designed for taller ultralight backpackers and thru-hikers, the Altaplex has ample head and foot room while still pitching with a single trekking pole and a relatively small footprint. The perfect tent for hikers up to 6'6" who refuse to sacrifice when it comes to size, weight, and features. A great fit whether you are a tall triple-crowner or just out for a weekend in the Smokies. This tent is roomy, well-ventilated, packs down small, offers simple set up, and can be set up almost anywhere!

The classic Morsel Spork but now in hard-anodized aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum. While not available for purchase yet, it launches on Kickstarter on the 18th!

Morsel's functional shape has a new and improved design and even tougher materials.

It's designed to fit everything from sharp corners to big bowls and deep bags. No matter how you use it, Morsel Metal is the most versatile spork ever.
