The CDT is our lightest, most basic, full-sized backpack. With just over 50 liters of available space, the CDT is the largest of our two frameless packs. Built for those who travel light, the CDT is popular with ultralight thru-hikers, day hikers, and travelers.
The maximum comfort load for the CDT is sub 25 pounds; at these loads, the contoured shoulder straps and pass-through hip belt result in a comfortable carry. If you’re rocking a sub-12-pound base, this pack is for you. Features like the stretch mesh front pocket, adjustable side pockets, and two hipbelt pockets help keep you organized on the trail. The CDT comes standard with a roll-top closure. A removable (and replaceable) foam back panel adds padding and little rigidity to this frameless pack.
NEW! FOR 2022: The CDT’s hipbelt pockets are now larger to accommodate most modern smartphones. We have also made the front shock cord system standard. The back panel and shock cord can also be removed for further weight savings.

| HIPBELT SIZE
The downward slope of your shoulder profile usually determines strap preference. You can assess your shoulder slope profile by looking in a mirror or having a friend look at the angle of your shoulder from the base of your neck to your shoulder point.
If there is relatively little or no downward slope, you have what is referred to as flat or squared shoulders.
If there is a noticeable downward slope, you have what is referred to as standard or sloping shoulders.
J-straps are the traditional straight straps. They are best suited for people with flat or square shoulders, as their flat shape provides better surface contact and less rub.
S-straps contour body curves. They are best suited for people with standard or sloping shoulders, as their contoured shape better hugs your shoulder slope.
