The FAST Pack Litespeed was inspired by our customers who were looking for a lightweight and more nimble alternative to our legendary FAST Pack EDC for use in active scenarios when you need full range of arm motion. The result is a streamlined 1300 cubic inch pack that incorporates the modularity and ruggedness you’ve come to expect from our FAST Pack line.

Perfectly suited for urban EDC, day hiking, travel or any activity that requires free movement, the FAST Pack Litespeed’s narrow profile and contoured design let you take your essential gear without having to sacrifice speed. The clamshell extends almost all the way down to the bottom of the pack, giving you nearly full and instant access to your gear. The bladder pocket and 2 mesh pockets underneath the clamshell provide additional storage space.

The FAST Pack Litespeed is covered with PALS webbing, allowing you to customize your pack with MOLLE compatible pouches. Two-inch webbing underneath the PALS webbing lets you attach Tek-Lok™ mounted sheaths and holsters so you can be ready at a moment’s notice. Top and bottom compression straps allow you to carry extra gear like a jacket without wasting space in your pack.

Our signature Transporter Tail is what happens when you take a standard beaver tail and apply the versatility, modularity and sophistication of tactical gear to it. Detachable with an internal pouch, the side release buckles of the Transporter Tail can be rapidly configured to hold odd-sized or large linear items like fly fishing poles, bags or snowboards.

The FAST Pack Litespeed is designed with the toughest and most durable materials to get you where you need to go. The pack is made of MIL-SPEC 1000 Denier DuPont Cordura® nylon, a high tensile strength composite nylon thread and webbing that’s nearly impossible to rip or tear. To alleviate the wear at critical stress points on the pack such as the handle, shoulder straps and top exit tube for the hydration tube, we used the same material found in Zodiac boats, MIL-SPEC Hypalon, for its abrasive and rugged nature. The MIL-SPEC NM DuraFlex Auto-Lok buckles are IR resistent on Foliage Green and Coyote Khaki Lightspeeds.
