Our Thoughts

The MLD Burn pack is designed for ultralight hiking. According to the MLD website. The MLD burn pack has been the "onebag" of choice for record-setting through-hikers.

A through hiker is somebody who walks extremely long trails of hundreds of miles. To set a record means multiple days of 20-30 miles hikes through woods, rivers, and mountains.

Airport security and baggage handlers are pretty rough with your luggage, but I can't imagine the wear and tear a through-hikers bag must go through.

I don't know much about ultralight packing or hiking, so I don't understand much about this bag. Can ultralight packs be carry on luggage? What would be the big difference between a one bag carry on and an ultralight bag?

๐Ÿ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Highly durable and would last you a long time.
  • Weather-resistant that will keep your things safe when the weather changes during hiking.
  • The craftsmanship of this bag is really great with truly neat seams.

๐Ÿค” Things to Consider

  • The pack is a bit too narrow.
  • Might be too minimal. Only features three external mesh pockets and the main compartment.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Reviewers Have Said

  • "This backpack is super ultra light and it’s tough. I passed through barbed wire and the pack was untouched: not a single hole, the mesh pockets are intact (not the same story for my other backpacks). It has all the space that I need and more."
  • "If you are looking for a frameless pack – this is THE ONE. I used this bag for the entire PCT this year and was impressed by the quality, craftsmanship, and overall durability. One area that stood out the most was how durable and comfortable the shoulder straps were – the foam and stitching held up well after over 2500 miles."
