Built on the same time-tested platform as the Speed 20 pack, the Speed 28 operates under the same philosophy as its lower-volume brethren. Except in this case, Dynafit argues that more volume is better. If you’re doing more touring than racing, you just might agree. Breathable shoulder straps, a luscious back-panel, and supportive hip belt ensure a comfy fit the entire day. The main zip opens top and side (instead of just the side) so you can access the larger volume more easily. If you want to take a race-mentality into the backcountry, check out the Dynafit Speed 28 backpack.
210-denier rip-stop nylon fabric won't self-destruct when you do.
Full-length top/side zip for easy access to main compartment.
Anatomical Airmesh back helps vent your stink and anger.
Removable shoulder-mounted bottle holder has thermal lining.
Quick ski-carry system is detachable for further streamlining.
Ice-axe loops and external helmet attachment for dangling things.
Velcro crampon pouch lets you stash things for quick-access.
Height-adjustable sternum strap helps with breasts and skins.
Waterproof internal pocket for your get-out-of-jail-free card.
Hi Suzanne, the largest size that can fit is a little open to interpretation and how much you are willing to stand and fiddle with the loop to get it over the tail of a ski. 115mm will be too large though no matter how willing to fiddle you are.
I have the DPS Tour1 Wailer 99's which have a 111mm tail, and they fit the loop with a little extra room to spare. Just a heads up.
Hey Sam! It's hidden in the photos that Dynafit gave us, but there is definitely a dedicated (and zippered) external pocket for your avy gear. The zipper runs vertically along the outside of the pack parallel to the main compartment.
What's the full weight on this bag? and weight with everything removed? Previous dynafit bags were all measured with everything that could be taken off and out of the bag removed. But since they advertise the bag with the features I don't get this.
Hello Gustav, the weight of this bag as it comes out of the package (with all attachments in place) according to our scales is 490g. We have not weighed the pack stripped. The bottle holder I know weighs 29g, and the only other features that are removable are the ski hook and sternum strap. With that in mind, I believe the removable features will be well under 100g.
Question about the helmet carry. The helmet cary mesh stashes into a pocket on the back of the pack, but it seems like you can only use the helmet carry if the pocket is open...The mesh is sewn into the inside of the pocket, so you can't zip it back up if the mesh is out....is the idea to just leave the stash unzipped if you have a helmet? This seems a bit odd to me...
Hey Alex, thanks for reaching out! Yup, the helmet carry is only accessible if the pocket is open. The only way to conceal the helmet carry is to have the straps stitched internally, otherwise it'd be flopping around when you weren't using it. The straps are stitched to the bottom layer of the pocket though, so the tension from your helmet will basically keep the pocket closed while it's unzipped. I attached a few pictures from our display model to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. It's a pretty clever helmet carry.
