The Kumo SuperLight backpack is for those who want a durable smaller volume frameless pack that is appropriate for a variety of uses. It is a Murmur gone rugged and is constructed out of our all new 140d Dyneema GGridstop™. The Kumo™ was named in honor of our great friends and customers in Japan as well as to describe the pack itself. Kumo™ is Japanese for "Cloud", and can also mean "Spider".

Constructed largely of our custom 140d dyneema GGridstop™ nylon on the Murmur platform it is more durable and has added features. The features include a zippered top pocket, a 1.5" webbing belt, a full hydration sleeve, a new compression/lashing system, and a new sternum strap assembly. Unlike the Murmur the Kumo™ will be available in two sizes, medium and soon in large. Weighing in at 14.5oz, the Kumo™ is designed for a wide range of activities including backpacking, travel, day hiking and would also make an excellent summit pack. A tough little pack with a rich feature set at home on the trail, the Camino de Santiago or in an airport.

Update: We no longer supply the Dyneema pack - Please see the updated Kumo Superlight Pack
