The Black Diamond Element 60 Backpack holds all the essentials you need for a weekend trip and maybe some toys to play with while you're out in the wilderness, and it remains incredibly comfortable whether you're hiking a mere five miles or something much longer. Both the reActiv hip belt and the SwingArm shoulder straps move with your body while you hike in order to give you a natural stride and reduce the energy it takes to reach your destination. Unlike most backpacks, you only need to set the straps and the belt once without readjusting them on the trail because this pack ensures an ideal balance at all times regardless of the terrain. Black Diamond molded the V-Lite frame anatomically in order to fit your back comfortably.
Black Diamond constructed the Element out of a durable nylon with a water-shedding finish and added an even more durable ripstop in key areas to withstand tears and abrasions. The backpack also features a floating top pocket that you can convert to a lumbar pack for day hikes on your backpacking trip, a zippered front pocket with internal pockets so you can organize all your gear, and a hip belt pocket for any small item you might need while you hike like lip balm or sunscreen. It also has a bottom zippered access so you can get to your sleeping bag without taking everything else out of the pack.
Light, streamlined and built with the lightweight multi-day backpacker in mind, the Black Diamond Element features our reACTIV suspension system with SwingArm™ shoulder straps for a comfortable carry from the Catskills to the Coast Range. The Element features both top-loading access as well as a large zippered sleeping bag opening, and the high-flow OpenAir backpanel maintains ventilation on warm days. The floating top lid converts to a lumbar pack for quick side hikes, and the large zippered front pocket, quick-cinch side pockets and hipbelt pockets store all the necessary on-trail essentials.
