Beta Light 30 Backpack


Size Guide
SKU: 295916

Designed in collaboration with BD's athlete team, the Beta Light 30L is made to carry everything you need—and nothing more—on fast-paced overnight adventures. Whether you’re a seasoned thru-hiker carrying only the essentials or out for a fast and light weekend trip, the Beta Light 30 provides ultralight simplicity in a comfortable package thanks to an innovative running-vest inspired harness system.

Built for moving fast and covering long distances, the Beta Light UL 30 is the ultimate blend of durability, lightweight construction, and load carrying comfort. Black Diamond partnered with Challenge Sailcloth to bring their Ultra 200 body fabric to the Beta Light series to create one of the lightest yet most durable packs on the trail. This durable fabric, combined with taped seams and a roll-top closure, make the pack waterproof and able to stand up to day-in-day-out use. A simple, Power Mesh stretch pocket and two side pockets provide plenty of external storage options, while the pack’s running-vest inspired shoulder straps provide support and comfort with additional snack pockets and water bottle storage options. A removable hip belt and a frameless pack body keep the pack light.
