"Your ultralight companion for the fastest and most demanding missions"
For peak performance on fast and light adventures, look no further. The Cloud Strider is a smaller, lighter version of the Summit Seeker is a great choice for quick day adventures or super ultralight overnight missions. Conquer summits, cover distance, and move freely across any terrain – the Cloud Strider allows you to push your limits and unleashes your inner mountain goat.
Two options, one goal:
Choose the Cloud Strider that best suits your mission:
- Running Vest-Inspired Straps: Experience comfort, load distribution, and on-the-go storage for essentials like water, phone, and snacks. These adjustable straps (7.5cm at the top, widening to 10cm across the chest) ensure a personalized fit. 4 pockets identical to those on the Summit Seeker.
- Running Vest Harness: For truly glove-like fit and zero bounce, opt for the fixed harness. It offers additional storage with spacious slanted Ultrastretch pockets with dual entry, a zippered pocket, and dual bungee loops for hats, gloves, and even trekking poles. Recommended for chest sizes 95-105 cm (or Small and Medium) and those prioritizing speed, minimal bouncing and more storage.
No matter your choice, the Cloud Strider delivers:
- Pre-stretched top pockets: Securely hold 500ml soft flasks with bungee cord to prevent any bouncing.
- Zippered pocket on the left strap: Keep valuables secure.
- Bungee cord loops: Attach hats, gloves, or other gear with ease.
- Lightweight construction: No padding for better ventilation and to minimize weight for effortless movement.
Coolmax spacer mesh on the back panel keeps you comfortable and ventilated, while unpadded, minimalist design hugs your back, eliminating unnecessary bulk and weight of the foam padding.
Ultrastretch front pocket: Stash wet gear, extra layers, or quick-access items in this pocket, secured by a removable bungee cord for additional storage or cinching the front of the pack.
Elastic cord on sides for cinching the backpack down or for securing trekking poles. The cord can be fully removed or replaced with non-elastic one.
Removable sternum straps: Fine-tune fit and comfort with two adjustable sternum straps.
Rolltop closure with magnets for quick and easy manipulation.
Note on the shoulder bottle pockets: the pocket works the best with a 500 ml softflask. It was tested with a Hydrapak Softflask and Ultraflask (the Ultraflask is the best option), as well as taller and narrower Salomon soft flasks. It won't work with a hard bottle. I may be able to source the soft flasks for you if interested and I plan to have them as a standard add-on in the future.
