Handy in town, on trails and for short hikes away from basecamp, the Flash 18 pack cleverly converts into a stuff sack when you turn it inside out.

  • Back panel is lightly padded; pad slips out for use as a sit pad
  • Hipbelt and sternum strap can be detached
  • Sternum-strap buckle doubles as a safety whistle
  • Hydration-compatible design includes a hose exit port and an internal sleeve for a reservoir (reservoir not included)
  • Drawcord closure fully covers the top opening when cinched tight
  • Pack exterior has a zippered pocket and daisy chain with ice axe loop

Imported.

Our founders were mountaineers in search of a good ice axe. Tired of ordering from Switzerland, they started the Seattle co-op in 1938 to provide gear to their climber friends—by passing around a notebook. That sense of community is still central to the co-op today, where collective expertise from REI members and store employees informs the design of our products. This is gear built on purpose.
