Dynafit Blacklight Pro Pack


The Blacklight Pro Pack is a rugged touring accessory for those who need a lightweight, all-day, touring pack. The straps have an anatomical fit to reduce unwanted pull on your shoulders and back, a common problem with backpacks. This pack also provides attachments and room for all your necessary equipment. There is an internal waterproof pocket for your valuables, a built-in crampon safety case, an aluminum ski hook, and attachments for a helmet, ice axe, and ropes. If you're interested in having quick access to your water bottle, sunscreen, and what have you, the pack also has a few extra daisy chains just for this reason. Possibly the biggest standout feature of this pack is the durable material. The Blacklight Pro is made from a Dyneema material, which happens to have 15x more tensile strength than steel! Compared to your average nylon material, the Dyneema material will hold up against rocks, jostling gear, even a simple case of overstuffing. If you're interested in a good looking, lightweight pack that's made for all-day touring and reliable durability, the Blacklight Pro is a fabulous choice!

  • Made of tear-resistant Dyneema material to hold up in rough conditions.
  • Great volume and weight for an all-day touring pack.
  • Fully featured pack with a built-in crampon case/safety box.
  • External helmet and rope attachments for ease of access.
  • Internal waterproofed pocket for your valuables.
  • Anatomical cut straps to reduce pull on your shoulders and spine.
  • External daisy chain and aluminum ski hook.
  • 30 litre capacity to hold a big day's worth of gear.
  • Removable back panel cuts the weight by 97g.

Question from Jim Powers
Does it come in a small or medium? Do you have One in the Seattle area?
Answer from Jeremy L
Hi Jim. Thanks for reaching out. This pack does come in just one size and will fit most. I gather you're wanting to try it on but we are located in the Salt Lake area. It does qualify for our free shipping, however.

Question from Hunter
I’m curious about the “official” way to attach an ice axe. I’ve come up with at least three ways to do it but none of them seem quite right. Am I overthinking it or is there some esoteric method that is actually more secure?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Hunter, the most logical way that we have found to carry an ice axe would be with the adjustable straps at the bottom of the pack and bungee located higher near the opening. There seems to be a few hidden little tricks with this pack but I think it's safe to say that probably the best option.

Eric (downright abused product)
Pretty rad pack! I've been using it for light & fast days in the mountains and "race style" traverses. Often a pure race pack won't quite fit the added warm gear or glacier kit needed for a traverse but it's nice not to go to a full-weight touring pack. I haven't compared it to the nylon material version but the dyneema seems to hold up to getting dragged against granite and ski edges as well as being stuffed with crampons and bootpack plates.

Sizing is good for carrying day gear and glacier kit. The ski carry is good and well dialled - the quick clip is good but there's also a more solid buckle clip if you want to be absolutely sure your skis don't fall off.

A shovel fits in the kangaroo pocket but not a massive one. I use the Mammut Alugator Light and the blade fits in there fine. If you've got a big shovel blade, it may need to go in the main compartment.

The side zip is super handy. It takes a little practice packing it to avoid having to open the top opening but once you get a system dialled, it's usually quicker. The crampon compartment is good sized. I often end up sticking pons and some food in there. It also fits a 30m RAD line well.

My only complaint is the lack of gear loops and a stretchy pocket on the hip belt!

Question from Scott
Is the helmet holder on the Dynafit Blacklight Pro 30L a hideaway net like that on the Race 20L? Thanks!
Answer from Zak M
Hey Scott, the Blacklight Pro pack does not have a stowaway helmet holder. The only way you could store a helmet would be with an aftermarket helmet holder like the Mammut Helmet Holder that will attach to the daisy chain loops on the outside of the pack. You could also potentially put the helmet on the top of the pack underneath the lid closure strap

Question from Marcus Tomlinson
following up on the earlier question of weight...Dynafit says the blacklight pro pack weighs 540g. is this accurate? This pages states 686g. Thanks.
Answer from jbo
Hi Marcus, if you see "Specs Verified" that means we weighed it. In this case, no, Dynafit's number is not accurate. We weight all packs the same, removing packaging and optional accessories.

Question from Aaron O
How big is the ski carry loop? Also, what kind of water carry options are there on the shoulder straps?
Answer from Julieana
Hi Aaron, we haven't gotten this pack in the shop yet so I can't measure the width of the ski carry loop or verify all of the water carry options. However, if you'd like to email us at we can put you on a notification list for when they do come in and if you reach back at that time we'll answer those questions for you.

Question from Kerry
Does the Blacklight Pro (540 gms?) really only weigh 20-grams less than it's non-Dynema look-alike? Seems a pack this size would have a bigger weight difference between Dynema and nylon construction.
Answer from Jeff
Kerry, I was wondering the same thing as I made up this page. The weights are what Dynafit has in the workbook. Skimo will weigh them when we get in stock and adjust as needed.
Answer from Eddie S
I weighed this last night and it clocked in at 740g. Granted, it had been used that day and may have had a few chunk of snow and some water in there.
Answer from Eddie S
I'm curious how it compares in reality to the nylon version
