Built to incorporate the best technology of both running vests and alpine packs - the Distance 15 is an ultra-versatile pack for moving light and fast in the mountains

The new Distance 15 from Black Diamond prioritises versatility by combining technologies from two different sports. A running vest-inspired suspension system and their time-tested alpine pack design makes this an ideal choice for those that favour the fast and light adventures. Engineered to redefine your line by giving you the ability to blend mountain terrain and activities, the Distance 15 is a hybrid pack that transcends barriers.

The best bits…

  • Built to move with you while you run and carry alpine gear with purpose-built features, so you have the gear you need when the trail ends, and the climbing begins
  • Built from Dynex UHMWP 10x Ripstop Yarns—the same burly material that’s in climbing dogbones and Ultralight Camalot range —Distance fabric is literally 10-times stronger than steel, while remaining so light it floats in water
  • Stitch-less Edge Taping Technology means the shoulder strap edge binding is fully edge taped instead of sewn, more like today’s innovative sportswear then a traditional running backpack—which allows for superior comfort, movement, and weight reduction
  • Harness system is constructed with an adjustable, elastic-cording side compression system, which gives you a more secure ride while running, scrambling and climbing.
  • Fully water-resistant main compartment for high altitude / 4-season running and climbing
  • Vest-like system also includes dual flask pockets that fit two BD HydraPak SoftFlasks, these are sold separately though
  • Deploy pocket on right strap to stash the BD Deploy Wind Shell jacket on gusty ridge traverses and emergencies.
  • Quick Blitz-style main opening with a stash pocket to tuck away essentials, while a mesh divider wall can store cordelette or a water bladder that can integrate with the pack’s hose routing
  • Dual Z-Pole quiver sleeves to stash your trekking poles when the terrain changes
  • Dual front stretch pockets are an extra place to stash nutrition or gear 
  • Dynex (Nylon 100d + PE 200d) body material with Dynex Ripstop yarns for bomber tear resistance that is 10x stronger than steel per weight
  • Dual side compression with reflective ticking
  • Dual Piolet / ice tool carry with metal dogbone for secure pick attachment
  • Adjustable elastic cording side compression system for a more secure ride while running and scrambling
  • BD.dry vapor barrier back panel lets sweat vapor escape while keeping pack contents dry
  • 100% BPA & PVC free construction
  • Dual front stretch pockets with elastic closure for nutrition storage
  • Interior zippered security pocket for wallet and key storage
