Tui 42 Pack

Tui 42 Pack

The NZ-made Tui 42 is among the lightest multiday packs in the world and stands out with its many unique patterns. Once you've solved the ultralight puzzle, this is the pack that will complete your kit; and like its namesake, you'll stand out among the crowd! 


The Tui 42 is a frameless pack designed for short weekend trips and thru-hikes alike. 


Only a handful of each pattern is available, and each design has either been hand-selected or created from scratch by our team. 


These packs are custom-made and will ship within 1 week of order confirmation. You can check our lead time information on our FAQ page HERE.

  • Features

    42L total pack volume:

    • 32L+ internal volume with a rolled down top. Additional volume is available depending on how full you pack the bag.
    • The external side and front pockets provide an extra 10L which includes the two 550mL hip belt pockets.
    • 7 external pockets total


    HyperD 300, a 300-denier polyester diamond grid fabric. Durable and highly water resistant (although we don't seal the seams, so it will not be fully waterproof, and a pack liner is recommended).


    The pack weighs approximately 420g when complete. The hip belt can be removed to subtract 100g, and once you cut all the strapping to your desired length, the result is a ~300g pack!


    Features List:

    • Hanging loop on the front of the pack.
    • Roll down top helps compress your gear to improve structure.
    • Adjustable hip belt provides a variable torso length within a 7cm range.
    • Adjustable sternum strap.
    • Stretch pockets on shoulder straps designed for phones, snacks, sunglasses, PLB, or other small items.


    All features can be seen in the video included in the image gallery at the top of the product page.

    These packs are sized for Small or Large torso length, with adjustable hip belt placement for a perfect fit.  


    • Small - 39-46cm

    If your torso length is between Small and Large size, then we recommend choosing the smaller size.

  • Important Notes

    If this is your first ultralight and/or frameless backpack, we suggest you read up on packing it properly as getting it right will greatly increase your comfort. Read our guide HERE.


    The comfort rating on the Tui 42 is 10kg, with a max load rating of 12.5kg (the point at which the pack may be damaged). Please take this seriously: if you plan to carry more weight for your trip, including your food and water, this pack is not appropriate for that trip!
