Product Description

There's definitely no fat in this Bacon. The original was a mere 650g, but our guides wanted to trim it even further. Introducing the Bacon 2.0. With narrower webbing, smaller hardware, and new 400D soft nylon diamond ripstop fabric, it weighs in at a wraith-like 550g. Guide-built with the Bacon's signature web skeleton—the secret to its ability to stabilize loads with such a light body. Two straps of continuous, 15mm nylon webbing start in the top lid, run down the front of the pack, then tie into the side compression/load stabilizer. The webbing gives a better structure without tension, and when the side load stabilizers are tensioned, it acts on the entire pack, pulling the load in closer. So instead of a loose noodle struggling to hold a considerable load, you have a pack that can actually be useful when carrying larger, heavier gear because the web skeleton keeps the gear secure and stable.

    Perfect alpine climbing pack — almost
    Oct 24, 2020

    I used this pack for winter alpine and ice climbing all over Alaska. I'm always amazed at the amount of gear it will swallow up without a complaint. It also has to be the lightest full featured pack on the market. I do have one small complaint: The ice axe attachments are not great. They are definitely good enough for a mountaineering axe, or an ice tool with an adze. However, a modern technical ice tool with no adze will not work. If EB took the ice tool holder design from their Alchemist packs and put it on the Bacon...woo boy. I'd buy 4 of them.

    A refreshing update for an already great pack
    Jan 13, 2020

    I owned the original model of the Bacon pack for over 3 years and put it through a multitude of travel adventures. The pack held up great and didn't begin to show any wear until after the two-year mark. The updates to the Bacon 2.0 pack are minimal but go to great lengths in ensuring that this pack is one worth owning. The introduction of YKK zippers make opening and closing the packs' various compartments easier and more enjoyable of an experience. The new nylon material makes the pack that much more flexible and capable of stuffing absolutely everything you should require into it, and at 28L capacity it is guaranteed to meet any stingy airline carry-on requirements. I've used this pack on weekend trips, 2-day hiking adventures, and even month-long minimal traveling expeditions. I would recommend the pack to anyone who is looking for a multiuse, top-loading pack. **If you can purchase the Bacon 2.0 while Eddie Bauer is having one of their many year-round sales, it's an absolute steal!

    Minimalist's 2 day hiking pack for mild weather.

    Loved this pack for everything it was designed for. Another 10 - 20L capacity and a built in rain fly would make this pack amazing. It's super light!
