Most packable backpacks are super basic & minimalist, built for backup. That’s not the case with the Beast 28 from Matador. This thing is technical & highly functional: made of ripstop PU coated nylon it features an ergonomic shape with lumbar padding & vented shoulder straps, plus a sternum strap & padded waistbelt. It’s also hydration compatible. When not in use, it packs down to a very portable bundle in its own mini stuff sack.
