The REI Flash 45 (2017) is a lightweight backpack with an adjustable, ventilated frame that’s perfect for weekend backpacking trips or more technical day hikes. Weighing just 2 lbs 14 oz in a size L, it’s a surprisingly comfortable and functional backpack capable of carrying 25-30 pound loads. If you’re in the market for a lightweight pack, I’d definitely give the REI Flash 45 a look. It has several innovative design features that enhance its comfort and utility well beyond similarly sized top loading backpacks from Osprey, Gregory, and Deuter, but at a lower price. For a more detailed breakdown, see my REI Flash 45 Backpack Review.
