Bacon 2.0 Pack
- Hydration Ready
- Packs Into Pocket
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.

The Bacon is a surprisingly good all around pack. I've owned numerous day and multi-day packs over the years, and the Bacon is a great go-to pack. Perfect for a brisk Class 1 14er summit push, or just a casual day hike. It carries surprisingly well, and performs even better when carrying a decent load. This is my second Bacon bag in the past 6 years (Eddie replaced my first after tearing it during a climb), and I'll always have one in my gear roster.

Light! Intelligent materials & components, handsome. I'm ~6'3" and wd like a taller size option, that cd utilize the belt better. *E.B. shd list recommended height range in backpack descriptions. The venting hole-riddled shoulder straps and back are well-conceived for lightness, comfort, and cooling. *I'll likely return mine because I fret about the HOLES on the sides, a few inches up from the bottom—wh I worry wd require a bilge pump in a deluge. (Previous Bacon had even larger holes.) The zippers also appear to be water-permeable. *Side note: I wish EB wd make more backpacks & outerwear w More coloring Options which are more visible at night, and in blizzards & on a wet street.

i bought the 2.0 to replace my old bacon pack which the chest strap buckle broke. i could not get a replacement buckle so had to either buy the new pack or replace the strap and buckle myself. be careful about the warranty! since i bought the old pack on sale, i had to pay full price for the replacement! that wasn't all that clear until the time came to buy the new one. the pack is great if you don't use it as much as i do. 2-3 times a week with up to 25 lbs. the straps wear out pretty fast. i probably will not buy another when this one dies. the durability is not the best. for occasional users it's great. for frequent users, something more durable is worth looking into. most of my friends are avid hikers, campers, etc, so because of that i am saying i would not recommend this. again, for casual users it's a good buy. everything is relative no?
