Built for the fast and light mountain adventurer, the Distance Pack transcends barriers with its hybrid design that includes vest-inspired suspension for running, and a unique feature set that allows you to carry the appropriate gear while navigating intricate mountain terrain.

The Distance 8L Pack is engineered to redefine your line, from the trail runs that bleed into rocky scrambles, to alpine adventures that cover a wide spectrum of mountain terrain, this hybrid pack blends running vest technology with Black Diamond's intimate knowledge of alpine pack systems to carry the gear you need, while remaining featherweight and comfortable enough to move at a fast clip.

Built from UHMWP 10x Ripstop Yarns - the same burly material used in Black Diamond's climbing dog-bones and Ultralight Camalots - the Distance’s fabric is literally 10-times stronger than steel per weight, while remaining so light it floats in water. The shoulder strap harness system utilizes BD's Stitch-less Edge Taping Technology - meaning the shoulder strap edge binding is fully edge taped instead of sewn, more like today’s innovative sportswear then a traditional running backpack - which allows for superior comfort, movement, and weight reduction. In addition, the harness system is constructed with an adjustable, elastic-cording side compression system, which gives you a more secure ride while running, scrambling, and climbing. This vest-like system also includes dual flask pockets that fit two BD HydraPak SoftFlask (sold separately) and a Deploy pocket to stash the BD Deploy Wind Shell.

The pack portion of this Distance includes a quick Blitz-style main opening with a stash pocket to tuck away essentials, while a mesh divider wall can store cordelette or a water bladder that can integrate with the pack’s hose routing. Featuring dual piolet/ice axe holsters on the pack’s exterior, and dual Z-Pole quiver sleeves to stash your trekking poles when the terrain changes. Dual front stretch pockets are an extra place to stash nutrition or gear, making the Distance 8 an ultra-versatile pack for moving light and fast in the mountains.
