Named after the Hyak wilderness area just outside of Snoqualamie Pass in Washington, the K2 Hyak Backpack can hold everything you need for a day of backcountry touring with streamlined organization. In fact, it is not really a coincidence that 'hyak' is Chinook for 'swift', nor is this pack a coincidence at all—K2 spent three years developing and testing the Hyak before it felt confident to release it. Undoubtedly, this backcountry wonder pack is as ready for powder as much as you are.
When it comes to the backcountry, 'saftey first' is the rule, which is why the Hyak has shovel blade, shovel handle, and probe pockets to keep your avy gear close at hand. An insulated hydration sleeve prevents your water from freezing up, because staying hydrated is a close second. A molded back panel provides a custom fit for maximum comfort, and a hip belt and sternum strap help distribute the load. The hip belt also has a camera pocket so you don't miss the shot, a lined goggle pocket keeps your lenses from getting scratched, and Duraflex buckles withstand harsh conditions so your gear doesn't fail you when you need it the most.
