The Atom U40: Our standard Atom 40L, only sewn in one of the toughest lightweight fabrics on the planet. Do you need a pack this durable? Probably not. Do you want one? We'll leave that for you to decide!

Aimed squarely at the ultralight hiker, the Atom gives you easy access to everything you need to keep hiking all day long using the five pockets that are easily accessible when worn.

This pack has few load assisting features and, as such, is only intended to be used by those with dialled in gear lists who like to enjoy the freedom of a light pack and moving without a frame or hip belt.

Features

Dual shoulder pockets
Super stretchy and big enough to hold most smartphones, a day’s worth of snacks or a 700ml water bottle. The elastic is fixed and, owing to its clever design, does not need a tensioner.

Bottom pocket
Easy-access bottom pocket with trash port made with Dyneema stretch fabric.

Large front pocket
Made with Dyneema stretch fabric. Can hold 5L, not included in the total volume.

Side pockets
Two 2.5L forward-facing, deep and low side pockets made with 210D Robic Extreema. Each one is big enough to keep 2 x 1L Smartwater bottles steady, yet low enough to reach whilst the pack is worn.

Front zig-zag elastic
Removable and designed to be able to store a folded Z-rest or assist with air drying your clothes.

Side elastic with Lineloc
These are there to secure a pole or tent stakes when stored in the side pocket. If you are wanting to compress the bag, we recommend switching to a non-stretch cord.

Sternum Strap
Elasticated and height adjustable.

Trekking pole loop
Small, removable elastic toggle to connect walking poles or ice axe.

Made for Movement

Aimed squarely at the ultralight hiker, The Atom gives you easy access to everything you need to keep hiking all day long.

Built with

Ultra 200

This is one of the most exciting backpack fabrics on the market today.

Ultra is made of woven UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene), the generic name for unbranded Dyneema fibre.

Ultra 200 has 3x the UHMWPE content of the equivalent weight of Dyneema Composite Fabric, has 3x the tear strength and 7x the abrasion resistance.

Good to know

Are the seams taped?

Yes, on the Ultra 200 the seams are taped with adhesive tape, this stabilises the seam and makes the bag highly water resistant.

Can it fit a Bear Can?

Most bear cans will not fit inside our EP30 packs, but you can rig it on top.

For larger packs (EP40, U40 and above) a BV450 will fit with the base to your back or a BV500 will fit vertically with a little room at the side for a stuffsack.  

How long will it take to make?

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping rates are calculated at checkout based on your delivery information.

If you live in a remote location, we may occasionally need to charge a small extra surplus for shipping. This will be calculated when we ship the pack.
