Including two 500ml bottles, the Featherlite 6 waist pack is a lightweight, portable feed and hydration station for when working hard in the mountains. With fantastic load carrying comfort and multiple pockets, it is ideal for any fast paced activity.
Montane's Featherlite 6 is a tough and durable waist pack with twin 500ml bottles, ideal for those who just need to carry the essentials and want a change from carrying the load on their back.
Feature wise there's multiple compartments which enables some degree of organisation and there is even webbing clip loops on the outside of the pack where you could attach gear that wouldn't fit inside. The bottles are straightforward with finger grips, volume graduations and a bite valve on each one. There's excellent padding on the back panel and the hip fins are really wide creating a very stable carry. We particularly like the large stretch mesh pockets on the harness as it provides extra storage space for those items you want to be able to grab fast.
Overall it's a great waist pack, though a little on the heavy side.
