Matador Beast28 Packable Technical Backpack


Durable, lightweight performance that's not typical of your average "packable" backpack.

If you're anything like us, you enjoy a damn fine backcountry trek, and depending on how big and far you're going, a packable daypack is worth its weight in gold when you get to camp. 

The Matador Beast28 is the world's "most capable packable" backpack and it's ideal for journeys that require a smaller, separate backpack to explore your destination.

Case in point: the stunning waterfalls of Havasupai, where you'll likely need a larger pack to make the 10-mile journey to the waterfalls. But once you're down there, having a lightweight, durable daypack makes exploring the area - including the misty ladder at Mooney Falls - much easier.

In fact, we wish we had the Beast28 a few trips back when we hiked seven miles down to the Colorado River and came back by the light of the moon and a few dimly lit headlamps. We digress.

Matador started in 2014 to offer packable adventure gear that made it easier to explore and travel with essential supplies, and their Beast28 is a testament to lightweight durability and function. Where most packable backpacks lack structure and long-term quality, the Beast28 impresses with its build, substance, and attention to detail.

Check out their Instagram and you'll see this pack all over the world, from Bali to, well, Havasupai. Read our Matador Beast28 review for more of our thoughts.
