Description

The Durston Wapta 30 backpack is an ultralight (made with ALUULA material, super cool stuff) frameless backpack for overnighters, day trips or really hardcore hikers, with a 30 liter in Medium and 32 liter in Large volume. You can carry around 10kg in this backpack but we prefer a bit lighter because it is frameless (specs say you can go higher that this). With a weight of  480 grams (medium) and just a bit over 505 grams for the large it is an incredibly light pack and still loaded with features and the build quality is superb. And now we have it available in Europe (in our shop in The Netherlands), all import and taxes paid.

Comfortable carrying

Despite being a frameless backpack designed for lighter loads, the Wapta prioritizes comfort with advanced ergonomic design. It features shoulder straps with an S-shape similar to the larger Kakwa packs, a design highly praised for its superior fit compared to straighter straps. These shoulder straps also have a differential cut to naturally curve over your shoulders and include laser-cut daisy chains for extensive sternum strap adjustment.

While most packs in this category lack a hipbelt or use a minimalist webbing belt, the Wapta includes a robust, padded hipbelt that is three-dimensionally shaped to hug your hips (and we love hugs). This hipbelt is also removable for when you want to reduce weight even further.

The Wapta still offers unprecedented back ventilation in the 500 grams backpack niche, featuring dual air mesh strips heat-bonded onto the back panel for added padding, a more comfortable feel, and enhanced ventilation.

Full of features

The Wapta’s feature set is carefully designed to provide excellent on-the-go access to your gear while enhancing durability, versatility, and simplicity. Key features include:

  • Bottom Pocket: Quick access to larger items like mitts and hats; uses decent fabric that can withstand some abuse instead of low durability stretch mesh for added durability, because we all know you will put your back on this pocket on the dirty ground somehow.
  • Front Pocket: Generous size made from ALUULA, ensuring durability and lightness.
  • Hipbelt Pockets: Large pockets designed for easy one-handed operation. For all those smalls like phone, snacks, GPS etc
  • Side Water Bottle Pockets: Adjustable tension and low cut front edge for easy access.
  • Dual Shoulder Strap Pockets: Ideal for phones, bear spray, and small water bottles.
  • Side Compression: Dual straps that open, close, and cinch at a single buckle for simplicity and functionality.
  • Laser Cut ALUULA Durlyte™ Daisy Chains: Customizable for various storage and compression needs, including ice axe and trekking pole attachments.
  • Top Strap: V-shaped for better item security on top, using a dual adjust buckle for quicker use than traditional V top straps.

Despite being a superlight pack, the Wapta incorporates these essential features to ensure it meets your needs on any adventure.
